Verdict

HARAMBE was a smart bumper performer and after two promising efforts over hurdles he looks the one they all have to beat here. Howling Milan ran well here in a hot contest last time out and rates the biggest danger. Of the hurdling newcomers Point Taken, winner of his only flat start makes the most appeal.
  1. Harambe
  2. Howling Milan
  3. Point Taken
