Verdict

Virile is penalised for winning at Wolverhampton and had earlier finished ahead of Catalinas Diamond and Molly Jones when placed at the track. The latter pair also finished behind course and distance winner Go Amber Go last month and Rod Millman’s charge has won at Ffos Las subsequently with Ignight well beaten. But the vote goes to another course and distance winner in SEE VERMONT, who has returned to a winning mark and drops back down a grade for this.
