Charlie Longsdon will be hoping the application of first time blinkers does enough to help Azure Fly make his way into the winners enclosure having placed seven times in the last year. However, it always pays to take a second look when Malcolm Jefferson brings the horsebox south and SUN CLOUD is backed to go one better than his Sedgefield second. Of the remainder, the ground could be against Saroque now with Cyclop given a chance if improving on his Cambridgeshire National second.
REGAL FLOW looked set to take advantage of a slide in the weights when departing 3 out at Wincanton 3 weeks ago and is very much the one to beat off the same mark. Azure Fly is interesting in first-time blinkers having run well over a trip a bit too far in the Edinburgh National last time, and After Hours could improve for the further step up in trip and is another who could be in the mix.
