Many clouds tonight will help Many Clouds tomorrow

spyglassIf the weather gurus have it right, it should be raining over Cheltenham as I write this and it shouldn’t stop until after the Gold Cup, by which time I expect that smashing young steeplechaser Many Clouds to have fought off all comers and won the big race.

He has a classic profile of an old fashioned Gold Cup Winner – improving strongly all season; true grit, a fine jumper and plenty of stamina. I wrote about him in a previous post and the only thing I’ve wondered about since then is how his price has held up. I thought he was a massive bet at 10s for the Gold Cup after winning last time out, and that price hasn’t changed much. But it will by tomorrow if the forecast is right and you should take the 8s available now.

Sad to see AP go tomorrow (though relieved he’ll leave the sport in one piece – touch wood), but it will gladden my heart to see another old warrior in Oliver Sherwood winning the Gold Cup.

Good luck to all

Joe
