We have an eye catcher running in the 13:15 Newbury - Sir Peter O'Sullevan Memorial Handicap Chase. We highlighted this one in the last eye catchers post. We put La Vaticane up as it was her first run over fences in the country over what was probably a too short a trip.
She ran well for most of the race but faded badly at the finish. She is dropping down in grade and with the longer trip may well win this but we urge caution purely on the form of the Pipe runners lately who all seem to be struggling to finish off their races as we found to our cost on Thursday with Un Temps Pour Tout.
If the Pipe team were in form we would be recommending an interest but we think its better to take a watching brief at this stage.
