The Non-Black type Egoli Mile is the headliner at Turffontein Inside tomorrow (Saturday) and is very difficult to call as all the runners have question marks against them.
 
The Sean Tarry-trained Litigation, who will be ridden by high-flying Gavin Lerena, is the tentative selection. He is a scopey colt who has not had much luck with draws and gets another wide draw here. However, when he did get a good draw he beat the decent Outofthedarkness over 1400m and the latter has gone on to finish a narrow second in the Grade 3 Tony Ruffell over 1400m and third in the Grade 2 WSB Gauteng Guineas. So If Lerena can find a good position with cover this progressive Greys Inn colt has a shout.
 
The Weiho Marwing-trained Picture Perfect caught the eye on debut over 1160m showing natural pace after a slow start and forging through to win going away without being put under pressure. Visually and on pedigree he will enjoy this trip but has a wide draw first time around the turn in just his second career start.
 
The Paul Peter-trained Ocean Warrior has the best form having slammed the decent sort Flashy Apache by 8,25 lengths over this trip and he is drawn in pole but he does have to carry topweight and this is his first start since being outclassed in the Dingaans.
 
The Mike and Adam Azzie-trained Supreme Warrior was fancied for the WSB Guineas after two impressive wins over 1400m and 1450m respectively but after being used up to get to the front from a wide draw he faded tamely. It was his first start under the lights so he could bounce back but he does have a slight stamina doubt on pedigree so still has to prove he stays the trip.
 
The Stuart Pettigrew-trained  Quiet Rebellion hit the front over 1800m last time when coming from off the pace before being outstayed by Juan Carlos and Duke Of Rain, so she should appreciate the step down to a mile and she is well drawn. However, she is 1kg under sufferance off a lowly 76 merit rating.
 
The Pettigrew-trained Whafeef beat Litigation by 0,80 lengths when they last met over 1400m and is now 0,5kg better off. However, he had pole that day and Litigation was caught wide in the running plus he was unplaced in his only attempt at this trip.
 
The Ashley Fortune-trained Princess Kesh has proved a liking for this trip in her last two starts but this will be tougher and she has a tricky draw.
 
The Tarry-trained Fisher King will need to improve on recent form although he has come down in the merit ratings so could be competitive.
