Vyta Du Roc team could wait for National weights before next run

Vyta Du Roc Connections of Vyta Du Roc are tempted to sit tight and wait until after the weights for the Randox Health Grand National are published next month before giving him another run.
The Nicky Henderson-trained nine-year-old, who is a general 33-1 shot for the Aintree marathon, bounced back to form last time out when claiming his first win in almost two years with a decisive success at Cheltenham on New Year's Day.
Anthony Bromley, racing manager to owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, said: "There is the Edinburgh National at Musselburgh or the Betfred Masters Handicap Chase at Sandown on the first weekend in February for him, as he will be ready to run that weekend."
He went on:"I need to talk to Nicky, but there is a possibility we may wait until after the weights for the Grand National are published and then head to Haydock for the Grand National Trial.
"Off his mark I think we will aim for the Grand National and let him roll in that.
"It was nice to see him win at Cheltenham last time, which was his first victory since winning the Reynoldstown at Ascot in 2016.
"Although he had not won a race since, he had run some good races in defeat, including when running a blinder to finish second in the bet365 Chase at Sandown in April."
