Border Legend's narrow defeat of Ajman Bridge at Newbury is decent form but YENHAAB is less exposed and can take a rise in the weights in his stride as he still won by a couple of lengths at Chester last time despite being eased down in the closing stages. Spirit Of The Law made a bold bid sent over to Leopardstown last month and beat Whispering Warrior at York prior to that. He's preferred to the less-reliable San Cassiano, though the latter is due one of his better efforts today.
