There is no stopping Peter Bowen's yard at the moment and his VINNIE MY BOY is going to be very popular after winning by 20 lengths at Stratford last week. A 7lb penalty is unlikely to be a problem. Electric Tiger was soon beaten when favourite for a seller here last month and hasn't progressed from some promising earlier efforts but High Ville may do better over this longer trip and Dont Tell Sailor has won off a higher mark over fences this year, though disappointed here last time. Aegean Destiny may have stamina limitations but Hassadin is proven over 3m and back in the right grade after pulling up at Worcester.
