Verdict

VICE ET VERTU looked a nice prospect when beating favourite Regal Diamond at Chepstow and, though the runner-up was well beaten next time, he can find the necessary improvement to defy his penalty in this. Flat winner Dark Dune shaped with promise when fifth at Doncaster and Howaboutnever was third in a Bangor bumper last month. Martin Chuzzlewit ran in a Listed race as a two-year-old but never really fulfilled his potential and may be best watched making his hurdles bow for another new yard.
