Winning Form – Magic Tips Comment:
DIVINE ODYSSEY won the Drum Star Handicap (Listed) over 1800M and followed that up with a win in the Colorado King over 2000M, both races being at Turffontein. He then finished third to Hawwaam in the Premiers Champion Challenge over 2000M, beaten 4.25 lengths. He carried 60kgs that day as opposed to the 57.5kgs that Hawwaam carried. In the big one he is set to carry 53kgs as opposed to the 56kgs allocated to Hawwaam, so is 5.5kgs better off at the weights with the favourite. He has a poor draw to overcome which is not ideal and his regular pilot, Calvin Habib, is having his first ride in this race.

Verdict: Too short last time. Include on good penultimate behind Hawwaam.
