Betting Tip: Cloudy Too @ 7/1 with williamhill

Jonjo O’Neill’s lightly-raced Spookydooky has been installed as 4/1 favourite but that may be more down to the fact you can pick holes in his rivals. Final Assault was beaten off today’s mark last time and looks an out-and-out stayer, top weight Seventh Sky is in the grip of the handicapper, O Maonlai is error-prone and all Sun Cloud does is stay, though that’s not such a bad thing in the likely testing conditions. The O’Neill runner stays at least this far and his best days should be ahead if him at seven, though he’s now on a career-high mark and Warriors Tale, the horse he beat at Newbury last time, hardly advertised the form when pulling up at Catterick in midweek.

Let’s take a chance then on CLOUDY TOO returning to form at one of his favourite tracks and in conditions he loves – the nine-year-old is 3-3 on the forecast heavy ground. He’s failed to shine in eight starts since chasing home Captain Chris at Ascot in February 2014, failing to complete on two occasions, including when unseating in the Cheltenham Gold Cup won by Lord Windermere. But he’s not had his favoured conditions in that time and has also been battling the handicapper, who has finally relented in dropping him back to 138, which is a 10lb lower mark than his last winning one. His latest eighth in last month’s Rehearsal Chase is better than it looks as he had traveled and jumped well until making a bad blunder four out, after which he wasn’t given a hard time. He’s an each-way price at the time of writing.
