The Sportsman's Verdict
This could be between the two penalised horses, with ENCORE CHAMPS preferred over Lord Yeats. The latter won nicely at Sedgefield last time but was well beaten by Warren Greatrex's charge when they met off level weights at Wetherby. The selection has since been beaten heavily in Grade 2 company at Ascot but should find this level more to his liking. Rollerruler showed up well despite his huge odds here last time and may be best of those without a penalty, but his form is a long way short of the two principals.
