Cape Town - Chad Ho will not be fazed by his competition in his search of his sixth victory in a row at the Midmar Mile, just outside Howick, on Sunday.

"There are a number of guys swimming really well at the moment but I'll just look to do my thing and race my own race without thinking about the others too much," said Ho on Saturday.

With Ho's 2014 rival Troyden Prinsloo not in attendance this year, Mark Randall, Danie Marais and Myles Brown appear to be Ho's nearest rivals.

"It was good to have a bit of a chilled hit out and check the lines before tomorrow's main race," Ho said after completing the Non-company Relay.

"The run at the start will mean everyone will be going flat out over the first ten metres or so, which will make things a little more chaotic but I'm feeling good."

Sunday's women's race is set to be a hotly contested one with many curious to see whether American Ashley Twichell will be able to hold off Great Britain's Keri-Anne Payne and the strong South African contingent.

The Midmar Mile takes place annually at the Midmar Dam, in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
