Verdict

HUKUM created a good impression when winning one of the most competitive three-year-old handicaps of the season over C&D 12 months ago, and having shaped like a horse who has got more to offer when winning at Goodwood last time, is taken to follow up. Wonderful Tonight handles testing conditions so she's feared most if the rain materialises, ahead of the progressive Ilaraab.
