Verdict

A dual winner over hurdles, VIRAK is rated much higher over timber than today's rivals. Related to winning chasers in France, Paul Nicholls' charge could prove the one to beat if taking to the larger obstacles. The remaining trio have all had experience of fences though none threatened the winner including Don't Take Me Alive, who finished a well beaten second at Towcester last month. Roc D' Apsis was beaten a distance over these fences on his chasing bow while McCoy takes over the reins on Rio De Sivola, well beaten in testing ground at Auteuil last time.
