FREQUENCY is the form pick to break his maiden tag at the expense of Togoaviking and Captain John Nixon. The selection improved on his debut outing to finish second to Oil Strike on his latest start in October. He looks a horse with a promising future and with luck in running he will not be far away come the business end of the race. Togoaviking is a well bred newcomer by Cape Cross. Willie Haggas has a good record with his debutants so any market moves should noted. The same can be said about Captain John Nixon who has his debut outing this afternoon and the market will be the best guide to his chances. Frequency has the benefit of experience and can put that to use by breaking his maiden tag at the third attempt.
