    hey i am new on here was just wondering everybody’s thoughts on the big race at haydock 2morrow. I think Naunton Brook has a great chance of winning after 2 good performances previously.

    it will stay ok but its a hot race i fancy the novice cloudy lane a little bit it loves the course and so does the trainer, small stakes i think, good luck with naunton brook.

    Naunton Brook has had some very hard races in the last couple of months and i think the edge has been taken off him rather. He will stay and love the ground, but cannot be discounted but he seems horse in need of a break.

    I will be backing Bewley’s Berry e/w, the ground may not be perfect for him, but he jumps and stays well.

    The Outlier for me. Ran 2 good races the last twice over 3m on Hvy at the track and was staying on at the end of both

    Its a tought race to crack. I like The Outlier too (sorry David) as it can do better still now upped to this trip. Cornish Rebel could run well too, though no Ruby Walsh is a big downside. And I’ll be watching Cloudy Lane too as you can say it won its last race because of a terrible last fence blunder.

    Have you even looked at the race Jilly?

    Why do we want to know you are "not sure yet"? Is that mutually beneficial for us to know?

    FSL, she’s becoming a bit of a pain in the arse, wasting all the threads, maybe cormack will clean a few up.

    I thought initially that The Outlier could be the one but, carrying 7lb more over 1/2 mile further, doesn’t inspire.<br>The trainer of Naunton Brook said, after his last race, that the horse does too much early on, and his weak finishes in these better class races support that view.<br>Which leaves me with Kelami, who has been there, done it, and got the T-shirt, and would probably be carrying a few pounds more had he not thrown the race away lto by hanging into the horse he had just overtaken.

    Cloudy Lane is potentially much better than his current mark. He won a novice handicap over hurdles at the track last spring off a higher mark. He’s a really sound jumper bar what happened at Newcastle last time. Slight concern that 3m 4f in soft ground might be far enough for him at this stage but I think he could develop into a serious National contender in 12 months time.
