NHA Press Release: After a lengthy discussion between the NHA Handicappers, HAWWAAM has had his merit rating increased from 112 to 121 following his runaway success in the Grade 1 SA Classic at Turffontein on Saturday 2 March 2019.

The Handicappers were in full agreement that runner-up BARAHIN is the correct line horse to use in assessing the SA Classic as it was felt that there is no likelihood that he would have run below what he achieved when finishing third in the Grade 2 Gauteng Guineas at his previous start.

HAWWAAM was simply in a different division to the Classic field in his first attempt at 1800m and the Handicappers are more than satisfied that he is well worth his new 121 rating.
