Verdict

Ulis De Vassy landed a gamble at Stratford in August but this looks a stronger heat. Suerte Al Salto beat the useful Prospect Wells at Fontwell in May on his chasing bow and has plenty of scope while the four-year-old Vesperal Dream has to be of interest making his debut for the Paul Nicholls team. Catch Tammy and Easily Pleased were both winners last time and Notarfbad should be winning soon, though may need some help from the handicapper. IVOR'S KING developed into a very decent handicap hurdler last season and looks as though he's going to be just as good over fences judged on an easy victory over course and distance 11 days ago. He has a penalty to overcome today but may be up to the task.
