The Sportsman's Verdict
SIMBIRSK built on his narrow Windsor defeat on reappearance to get his neck in front over this course and distance last week and John O'Shea's in-form performer makes plenty of appeal once again under a 5lb penalty. However, Champs De Reves took the silver medal on that occasion and it would be no surprise to see him turn the tables off the same mark. Francophilia was another to go close here recently and the slight drop in trip may suit.
