Verdict

Vittachi bounced back to form when scoring on fast ground at Ayr last month. He should cope with the extra furlong and will handle any cut in the ground though PONTE DI ROSA is preferred. The latter won a higher grade race at Warwick last week when beating a couple of previous winners and this looks no tougher despite her penalty. Old Boy Ted finished third at Yarmouth last time without looking like winning but Spruzzo was beaten a couple of lengths in an amateurs' race over C&D last month and could figure with a repeat performance.
