Verdict

Paul Nicholls has won three of the last four renewals and two of those were imports from France. VIROFLAY fits the bill as he won on the Flat in France and is a half-brother to a couple of winners over jumps. Overpriced Mixer landed a double on the Flat last year and has his second outing for Nicky Henderson. He’s rated higher on the level than both Chinese Whisperer, a winner at Wolverhampton, and Can't Stop Now with Kentucky Hardboot looking best of the rest.
