    Ginger, you’re assuming that Carrigdoun ran to his mark and everyting else didn’t.
    Many Clouds was eased down near the line so maybe his ratings might be lower than his best. However the second Unioniste, third Carrighdoun and fourth Sausalito Sunrise all finished within a length of each other. Sausalito Sunrise jumping wasn’t fluid so might excuse him being below his best, both the second and third rallied on the home straight. With the third according to racing post running a big race. He was fitted with blinkers and goes well at this venue according to RP

    Rob’s said in his post.
    “I watched the race from the in-field at Kelso today. Some of Many Clouds leaps were breathtaking and it’s that sort of performance that illustrates why this sport is so great.

    Looked to me as if Oliver Sherwood had left a little to work on before the National. Presumably he’ll be on tick-over for a while and then final tune up for Aintree.

    A side from the above can I big up Carrigdhoun, part owned by a mate of a mate, who ran a best ever race today. Looked under the cosh when dropping back form four out but saw his race out to the line for third place.

    Rob.”

    Without a reliable rating system here, Carrigdhoun sounds like he raised his game, to try and beat the placed horses.

    I wouldn’t exactly say Many Clouds improved to win today. Third horse, Carrigdhoun keeps the form down. But there’s every indication Many Clouds is capable of improvement; remembering connections struggled to get him there last year and many in the Sherwood yard thought the horse over the top for the season.

    Grand National looks like a two horse race, Many Clouds V The Last Samuri.

    Why does Carrigdhoun keep the form down. Can’t a 200/1 get third without the form being in question.

    Min could win, but I think BUVEUR D’AIR (FR) could produce a shock victory (well MINI SHOCK AT LEAST). :whistle:

    Really liked Many Clouds performance today. Outjumped everything, outstayed everything in other words pure class. However his form has been rock solid all year, with perhaps his first run which was needed. All this doesn’t mean he’ll win the National on April 9th, but Oliver Sherwood has given Many Clouds and Leighton Aspell the best chance possible.

    Kelso rearranged for this Sunday. :yes:

    Phew! Didn’t want Many Clouds having a hard race in the Gold Cup before the National.

    I second that. He’s at the moment is my main hope :good:

    Just watched the 4.40 from Naas where Goonyella and Gallant Oscar are heading to Aintree :yes:

    Goonyella lost his way in the midway part of the race, and needed lots of encouragement but rallied to battle back against stable companion [also same ownership companion] Venitien De Mai.

    Gallant Oscar was waited with and made eyecatching moves towards the leaders. He finished in fifth.

    Some encouraging figures for Saturday’s race for GOONYELLA :good: from Racing Post.

    Fancied Goonyella last year when set to ride with Official Rating of 136 :yes: until he was pulled out.

    Then a good run in the Midlands meant he went up 10 pounds and another 4 pounds with an equally good run in the Scottish [losing by 3/4 of a length ]. His form this season not been up to much, but his run on Saturday as my initial reaction suggest was encouraging[repeating myself there, need a thesaurus :whistle: ].

    The one I liked about the 3.45 at Doncaster, yesterday, was The Druid’s Nephew. Perhaps on ground too soft but the way he came prominently on the scene impressed me (a little bit :yes: )

    I agree The Druids Nephew’s run was very encouraging too. Don’t quite understand this thing about him being better on good ground though. To my mind TDN’s form suggests he’s just as effective on soft, even very soft. Was he much below form yesterday? Doubt it myself. And has 10 lengths to make up on The Last Samuri who’s improving all the time – and they meet at Aintree on identical terms.

    Although the description in last year’s National was Good To Soft, the time suggested to me that it was as firm as they let it. The second fastest time since Mr Frisk won over 4 miles 4 furlongs in a TIME of 8m 47.80s (fast by 22.20s). While Many Clouds won over 4 miles 2 furlongs and 74 yards with a time of 8m 56.80s (fast by 7.20s).

    The Druid’s Nephew came down just after Valentine’s second time round, but up to then looked like he was handling the ground.
