Verdict

Vamizi went very close twice at Exeter in the autumn but has gone up in the weights again and may find it hard to pick up the winning thread here giving 9lb to SONA SASTA. David Pipe's charge made a smooth transition to fences at Taunton nine days ago in the hands of Danny Cook, who was able to ease the eight-year-old to a virtual walk after the last yet still win by 18 lengths. He jumps well and clearly appreciates a soft surface so should follow up here, despite his penalty. Quattrocento is high enough in the weights but kept on well enough to finish second to Nicto De Beauchene at Sandown earlier in the month. He has place prospects again along with The Rainbow Hunter, third over 2m6f here three weeks ago, and Wind Instrument who should be all the better for his run at Cheltenham in November.
