Verdict

VICE ET VERTU handles any ground and having put in a good performance at Ascot on his reappearance, he was a bit disappointing in the finish at Newbury over Christmas. That was a tough race however and, with 2lb in his favour since, Paddy Brennan's mount can challenge for this contest. There are plenty of dangers in an open event, with Lingfield winner Diplomate Sivola attempting to defy the assessor and Fox Appeal proven over C&D. Touch Kick must prove his stamina but Le Boizelo has posted two better efforts lately and comes her with confidence restored.
  1. Vice Et Vertu
  2. Diplomate Sivola
  3. Fox Appeal
