i dont see nexus nominated anywhere prior to the July.
The horse should not be in the log at this stage.
swap Tristful and Attie 19 and 20th
The rest of the log seems pretty fair

Will not stay 2200m. Most wins have been over 1400m

Well Cirillo would at least not come in under sufferance and although I doubt that he can challenge over 2200m, he did run well behind GtG in the Challenge; can't believe though that Attie can be discarded in place of a horse rated 101 - and Tristful - really :ohmy:

Interesting runner coming in with a low weight for me is Running Brave - runs well at this track and looks good place value at least at these odds :dry:

How and why would Atyaab get a run in the July?

This is the only horse I can recall that won a group 1 (Cape Derby) and wasn’t deemed good enough to be entered into the July.

I would argue that Attie is at least as deserving as Matter Horn and Tristful, but the KZN boys look after their own :huh:

The same point applies to several including those, this race is becoming a farce. Besides the injuries its disappointing that so many including the likes of Malmoos are skipping.
