** Wincanton racecard has been abandoned following Saturday morning inspection due to flooding down the back straight.

Cloudy Glen didn’t fully see out three miles at Sandown having looked most likely winner turning for home. We had him backed when running out at the first fence at Cheltenham on trials day last Month. He drops down in trip here to 2m4f and is well handicapped off a 3lb higher mark following his Sandown run. The rain softened ground will suit this son of Cloudings really well and he looks to have a big chance so long as fully recovered from his Sandown effort. He remains unexposed on just his 7th chasing start and deserves to be favourite in this race.

Selection Reasoning

A good renewal of this race which is a trial for the Aintree Grand National. We have a few old friends in here such as Vintage Clouds, Yala Enki, One For Arthur & The Two Amigos but the value bet is Lord Du Mesnil. Only turned 7 years old trainer Richard Hobson has a proper stayer on his hands in this son of Saint Des Saints. Lord Des Mesnil has won three on the bounce with his recent win the most impressive. He won over course and distance readily galloping clear of Perfect Candidate having led from the front. He might get battled for the lead by The Two Amigos but seems a relaxed horse who is enjoying his racing.

The handicapper raised Lord Du Mesnil 10lbs for his recent win but he looks capable of winning such was the authority of his course and distance win in December. Yala Enki, Vintage Clouds, Elegant Escape & Ballyoptic all looked handicapped to near their best and might prove vulnerable to younger legs despite conditions to suit.
