I think repeat is an adjective in this context, because according to Free dictionary, repeat:
adj. Of, relating to, or being something that repeats or is repeated: a repeat offender; a repeat performance of the play.
Repetitive and repeated can also be adjectives. I'm curious how to distinct these three words, repeat, repetitive and repeated?
For example, repeated attempts to kill him VS repetitive attempts to kill him VS repeat attempts to kill him?
