Cloudy Lane is a horse I really like. Jumped really well on his chasing debut at Aintree and things haven’t gone to plan since for all he got off the mark at Newcastle the time before last. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him win a good handicap somewhere before the season is out, particulalry as his jumping will hold him in good stead at the bigger tracks.
Roger Charlton’s Last Sovereign needed todays run in the 1.10 at Southwell to get a run for a mark and like on his second start at Kempton, caught the eye as he stayed on without being knocked about. Initially held up out wide, in line for home he was switched on to the inner and ran on well without being knocked about. Hard to see him getting a mark too much higher than mid 60’s and I’ll be surprised if he isn’t placed to advantage over 7f+.
