CROWN TOWERS

After disappointing in his comeback start Crown Towers will strip fitter and should find his way back to the winner’s enclosure at Greyville on Sunday.

He should be able to get to the front easily from a good gate in Race 5, a Pinnacle Stakes over 1800m as opposed to his last start after a three-month break where he found no cover, raced wide and finished unplaced.

He is joint best weighted with Tristful (returning from a break) who beat him in the Champions Cup the last time they met. That was a race of the highest quality but Crown Towers was the sacrificial lamb used to set the pace for illustrious stablemate Jet Dark who went on to win. Prior to that, he had beaten Tristful twice so that makes him the one to beat.

GG’s Dynasty is worth a look as he was primed for a tilt at the OnamissionMile in Johannesburg but didn’t show from a very wide draw. He could pop up at decent odds back home and can be coupled in Swingers and Exactas with Crown Towers.

Three-year-old Quasiforsure was also costly when losing his unbeaten record last time. He didn’t enjoy the steady pace set over the longer 1600m trip and back to 1400m, over which he is unbeaten, should set the record straight.

He has also secured the best of the draws in Race 7, a MR 78 Handicap. Granted, this being a handicap could make it tougher than his previous race when meeting his age group at level weights where he was expected to win, but he appears better than his rating.
