Verdict

Melekhov and Shantaluze are promising recruits from the bumper ranks. Both represent yards in excellent form but it may pay to side with the hurdling experience of MARKHAN who was fairly useful on the Flat. He may have too much speed on this ground for his rivals who may want further and who have only proven themselves on soft ground.
  1. Markhan
  2. Melekhov
  3. Shantaluze
