The Sportsman's Verdict
Ilewin Geez arguably sets the standard having already won twice this season but the 14lb penalty he has to carry makes him vulnerable today. With that in mind, the preference is for INFORMATEUR, who bumped into an above-average rival when finishing second at Hexham last month and he appears to have plenty in his favour today. Mance Rayder would have a chance based on his best form but he was not the most predictable of performers when trained by Philip Hobbs.
