Encrypted made it back to back victories for trainer Hugo Palmer, in the Listed Betway Golden Rose Stakes at Lingfield Park.
Twelve contested this six-furlong race, including last year’s winner, Stewards’ Cup winner Gifted Master.
As the gates opened, it was Encrypted and Gifted Master were fast away, but Corinthia Knight to the inside, went on, as the former winner was caught out wide.
Settling down, Corinthia Knight and Gifted Master vied for the lead, with Gracious John to the inside in third and then Encrypted.
Corinthia Knight kicked on from the home turn, with Encrypted closing and going on.
Late on, Intisaab and Kimberella flashed home, but Josephine Gordon and Encrypted just held on.
