Forecast

Jepeck (3/1), Broken Eagle (7/2), Repeat Business (5/1), Now Ben (8/1), Supreme Danehill (8/1), Tinkers Hill Tommy (10/1), Frelia (12/1), Miss Gotaway (14/1), Northgeorge (20/1), Mountain Cliche (25/1), Kristian Gray (33/1), Green Winter (33/1), Fitz Volonte (33/1), Lotus Pond (66/1), Back In June (66/1), Bedford Forrest (66/1)

Verdict
Broken Eagle looked a different horse when given his head at Huntingdon last time, but that was on much quicker ground than he's likely to encounter here, and may be vulnerable late if similar tactics are employed. Indeed, stablemate Supreme Danehill, with stamina assured and Gina Andrews up, amy be first home of the Hill pair. REPEAT BUSINESS, on the other hand, looks ready for another step up in trip based on his Chepstow win and is worth chancing. Now Ben is another with stamina to prove but has the form to go close. Jepeck and Frella are others worth a second look.
