VIBRATO VALTAT is the classiest horse in the race and obviously has to carry top weight which will be tough but Stan Sheppard takes 5lb off his back which should make things a little easier. VIBRATO VALTAT is now rated 152 down from 160 at the start of the season and with 5lb taken off basically runs off a mark of 147 which is very workable. Paul Nicholls has a great record in this race winning it in the last 2 years so it is obviously a race he targets. He should run a nice race and possibly go on to the festival. He could actually go to the Grand Annual at the festival if he wins this and Stan Sheppard could claim 5lb again. Reading between the lines I think this is something they are planning. He should go close in and his class should show. E/W.
VIBRATO VALTAT 8/1 with Betfair – 0.5 POINTS E/W
