Forecast

Are They Your Own (7/4), Broken Eagle (11/4), Sam Cavallaro (4/1), Delta Borget (10/1), Willem (16/1), Mr Sawyer (16/1), Back In June (20/1), Treacyswestcounty (33/1), Nothing Personal (50/1), Red Inca (66/1), Western Dream (100/1), Dr Anubis (150/1)

Verdict
Not many hunter chases are run over the minimum trip, but it should not be a problem to BROKEN EAGLE, who is a prolific point-to-point winner who can finally start to translate that ability to races under Rules. Are They Your Own was set to win when coming to grief at Fakenham last time and will be a big threat if negotiating the fences.
  1. Broken Eagle
  2. Are They Your Own
  3. Sam Cavallaro
