Getabuzz ran in decent company on the Flat and will be all the better for his two runs over timber. This isn't the toughest of races so he should be thereabouts though dual bumper winner POPULATION should be good enough. John Ferguson's charge hasn't been beaten far in any of his four latest races over hurdles and has been found a nice opportunity to get off the mark. May's Boy, five times a winner on the Flat, showed nothing on his hurdling debut here last month and triple Flat winner Military Call has been well beaten in his two starts over timber.
