Didn't run too badly when out of the frame at Turffontein Inside (beaten just over 3l at 3-1) in a handicap 14 days ago; a course winner; should give it a good shot

Verdict

This looks like a trappy affair but AUGUST RAIN can prove superior. Dr Doolittle has winning form over course and distance, and this distance may be a bit longer than Bebop wants.
