NICKY Henderson’s runners may have made little impression in the Ascot Chase but the Seven Barrows trainer enjoyed a successful day otherwise as 9/2 chance Vyta Du Roc took the Grade 2 Sodexo Reynoldstown Novices’ Chase and Different Gravey, 5/1, followed up in the Les Ambassadeurs Casino Handicap Hurdle.

Vyta Du Roc is only seven and stayed three miles in testing ground really well after being tapped for speed at Doncaster last time. Patiently ridden by Daryl Jacob, he challenged between the last two and a particularly good leap at the last accounted for Le Mercurey.
