Charlie Fellowes has to be satisfied with his first season in the training ranks and his string continue in good form. EPSOM HILL couldn't have been more impressive when getting off the mark at Thirsk at the start of the month and should relish this even longer trip. He can cope with a step in grade and a 10lb higher mark here. Kuda Huraa is a bit inconsistent and has never won on Turf on the Flat, though has won over hurdles. Echo Brava keeps finding one too good but Manomine won at Lingfield and Goodwood earlier in the summer and may have found 2m too far here last time. Shavansky last won on Turf in 2011 but is a tough sort who rarely runs a bad race and Novirak is probably best watched after a spell on the sidelines.
