Verdict

Vibrato Valtat was only beaten a short-head in a decent handicap at Kempton last time when Fergall was only sixth but has become expensive to follow. CHOCALA has more scope and ran very well on his hurdling debut at Newbury in a race that's produced plenty of winners. He'll know more today and can open his account. Tiqris' form has a solid look about it but he has a penalty to overcome, as does Leicester scorer Hint Of Mint. Revaader has been placed twice on heavy ground lately but has had plenty of chances and is likely to find a few of these too good.
