Verdict

These novice hunters are competing for a decent prize. Alan Hill holds a strong hand with Broken Eagle bouncing back from a poor run at Cheltenham when winning easily at Huntingdon, though he weakened quickly when only fourth in this last year. The stable also run the progressive Supreme Danehill while Repeat Business easily beat subsequent points winner Tinkers Hill Tommy at Chepstow in April. JEPECK (NAP) beat the mare Miss Gotaway by 15 lengths at Buckfastleigh in February and has been placed in two starts under Rules since, including over 4m at Cheltenham last month. He has a top amateur on board today and should take all the beating.
