Jack Milner: Greek Fire still looked in need of the run when he won an Assessment Plate over 1400m at Turffontein on 17 December but he should be at peak fitness when he contests a MR 95 Handicap over 1600m on the Vaal Classic track on Tuesday.

Viv Greybe: Dean Kannemeyer-trained Pumpkin Queen should be rewarded for consistency with a fourth career win when teamed up with Keagan de Melo in Race 3 and top-rated event at Scottsville on Wednesday – a MR 86 Handicap (F&M) over 1600m.
