ATTICUS FINCH has had his merit rating raised from 107 to 111 following his success in the Grade 3 Betway Victory Moon Stakes over 1800m on the Turffontein standside course on Saturday 4 November.  The Handicappers were of the view that last years’ winner LITIGATION who placed 4th here made for the most suitable line horse, which leaves him unchanged on a mark of 110.

The only other horse to receive an increase in ratings is ELECTRIC GOLD, who goes up from 102 to 105. A noteworthy performer here is SON OF RAJ, who runs above his rating at these weight terms but cannot be adjusted due to him running unplaced in 5th spot.

Two horses were given rating’s drops, WHAFEEF was dropped from 107 to 105 and STAR COIN was reassessed after failing to confirm his 6th place finish in the Grade 1 SA Classic, he was adjusted downwards from 108 to 100.
