Forecasts

Sametegal (7/2), Step Back (4/1), Singlefarmpayment (9/2), Crosspark (11/2), Gold Present (11/2), Jepeck (10/1), Brother Tedd (14/1), Horatio Hornblower (25/1), Smooth Stepper (50/1), Regal Flow (50/1)

Verdict

This is clearly more competitive than the race STEP BACK won at Wincanton last month but his excellent track record still makes him of major interest. Paul Nicholls is in cracking form so Sametegal rates an obvious danger if cheekpieces have a positive effect. Jepeck won the Final of this series here last winter and is also feared with his yard going well.
