Forecast

Mutakatif (4/7), Expert Eye (6/1), Cuban Heel (13/2), Barraquero (14/1), Shootingthe Breeze (14/1), Glacier (16/1), Petrus (20/1), Magnificent (20/1), Diva Star (33/1), Corazon Espinado (33/1)

Verdict
Possibly the weaker of the two divisions on paper but Cuban Heel, Expert Eye and Glacier have plenty to recommend them providing the market doesn't suggest otherwise. Even so, Charlie Hills' expensive purchase MUTAKATIF displayed plenty of promise first time out at Haydock and it would be no surprise to see him exploit that experience edge against the first-timers.
