Greatwood Hurdle winner Harambe could head to the Betfair Exchange Trophy Handicap Hurdle at Ascot next month.

Trainer Alan King is thinking of running in the valuable event at Ascot on December 21st, after the seven-year-old stayed on well up the Cheltenham hill to land the Greatwood late on.

“Harambe is not the type who will stand a lot of racing – but he has a month before Ascot, and that looks the logical target,” the Barbury Castle trainer told www.alankingracing.co.uk.

“He’s a gorgeous horse and will make a lovely chaser, but that will be next season.

“Tom Bellamy, who is now our number two following Wayne Hutchinson’s retirement, gave Harambe a great ride.

“The horse was too fresh on his comeback at Chepstow, so I told Tom to get him settled and focus on getting involved in the second half of the race, and it worked out a treat.”
