The Sportsman's Verdict
Byron's Choice progressed well in the summer of 2018 when winning his last three races and it will be interesting to see how the four-year-old copes off 7lb higher following a 309-day absence. Lake Volta should find this easier than when down the field in the Victoria Cup at Ascot seven days ago, but this can go the way of ADMIRALITY, who has some solid form on fast ground and looks poised to appreciate this step back up to seven furlongs.
