Verdict

The last GB race before Xmas and a real puzzle for backers to unravel. Harambe subject of a stable scare earlier in the week bids to hold off five of the rivals that he beat when landing the Greatwood at Cheltenham off a 6lb higher mark and he must have a good chance of confirming the form. His biggest dangers from that race would be the progressive duo Quoi De Neuf and Countister both of whom should be suited the race scenario. Turnpike Trip should be noted in the market with Umbrigado another of interest moving back in trip. The overall vote goes to TAMAROC DU MATHAN whose C&D second gained a real boost yesterday afternoon; he could be very well handicapped for his debut in this sphere.
  1. Tamaroc Du Mathan
  2. Harambe
  3. Quoi De Neuf
