Verdict

HUMBLE HERO was pretty smart on the flat and promises to be every bit as good over hurdles with two seconds in as many races; the latest when going down by a short-head. He can improve further and land the spoils here. Sunrise Ruby is most feared given her good second on hurdles bow here especially considering her trainer. Storm Goddess won in little more than a canter latest and has to be respected also.
