Aintree Virgilio

Horse racing - Aintree - 11 Nov 14:15

Virgilio is somewhat of an Aintree specialist, he's 3 from 5 round here, considering he's only won 6 times he clearly loves this place. He's actually won by 6, 7 & 8 lengths here too so always seems to find plenty here. He's also best fresh as he is here, winning first out out every season, winning by 2, 6 & 8 lengths.

Dan Skelton was aiming him high this season, saying that he would start him in the Grade 2 Charlie Hall chase, in the end he was withdrawn due to the soft ground. Dan Skelton said that if he was ever going to win a big race like it would be first time out. He will instead be running first time out in this race, a class 2 handicap, if the trainer thought he had a chance in the Charlie Hall first time up then he's potentially the one to beat first time out in this company.

Last time out he won here at Aintree by 7 lengths, that was off a mark of 142 and he's up to 149 now. Given the way he won so easily and always seems to be ahead of the handicapper at Aintree I can't see the 7lb rise in the weights stopping him.
