Verdict

VIVA VERGLAS showed a big improvement when fourth at Thirsk last time, finishing three lengths ahead of the re-opposing Pavers Bounty. David Barron's colt can open his account with further progress likely. The Dukkerer and Red House have some catching up to do to match the selection so one of the newcomers could prove a bigger threat. Of those, Chuckamental is the first foal of a 5f winner and makes more appeal than Go Jamesway.
