Verdict

VIKING VISITOR ran well until lack of condition told when finishing ahead of Ardkilly Rebel on his hurdling debut at Ffos Las. Successful between the flags and the winner of a couple of bumpers in Ireland last summer, the six-year-old will strip fitter here and has more scope than Zakatal who was finishing in the frame for the sixth time in a row when third at Ffos Las last month and doesn't have much in the way of pace. Kasbadali was runner-up at Exeter and Southwell in the autumn and should be thereabouts again if fully wound-up after a short break but hurdling newcomer Royal Riviera is probably a better long-term prospect.
