Rahul has served notice of his intention to win the Nakuru Champion Stakes at Ngong on Sunday afternoon, having already blitzed through 1,400m.

However, Saint Moritz also gave advance warning when debuting first, without a thought. Westwood Star, Wimborne and Camberley, have had more exposure, but nothing transfixing as yet. Grand Surabi needs to be analysed in the paddock. He could be fully-loaded with spunk.

The Louis Cup does not have a beguiling field, but we could platform Roxstar again, as his mother Roxanne, always featured well over 2,800m. Chipping is definitely worthy of another endeavor, after a not too shabby run in the Kenya St Leger. He certainly kept going until Westwind strutted away in stellar fashion.
