Verdict

Promising form doesn't come in much abundance for this contest but the only who seemingly sets the form standard is the mare YEAT'S ENCORE. While she can prove to be keen, she has good course form and would've arguably been closer had she not fluffed her lines at the final flight last time. Her current mark remains workable too. The top-weight Acclamatio looks far better equipped in this sphere and a valuable 7lb is taken off his back, while the likes of Derby De Thaix and Take A Punt showed promise last time which suggested they could have the scope to step forward once more.
