It was a bit of a tough race for Le Frank today at Sandown but he ran with credit to be midfield and will find things easier on heavy ground.
We have a busy few days coming up with Aintree and Wetherby tomorrow and Kelso on Sunday.
One For Arthur, pictured with Ailsa, runs in the Becher Case tomorrow and is off a nice weight of 11stone 2lbs. He has been in great form at home and better than ever since his comeback Kelso race in October, and if he enjoys the challenge of the Aintree fences again then he should run a big race. Of course, the trip is a mile and a half shorter than the National but the soft ground should help him and the team here have done a great job with getting him ready for the race.
Earlier Charmix makes a comeback after eighteen months off, and we are looking for a confidence boosting run. He has been a straightforward horse in training and has enjoyed his schooling over the past few weeks.
Meanwhile, at Wetherby in the two mile handicap Ain't My Fault steps up in class on his fourth chase start. A free going horse at home he has taken well to fences so far and as long as the ground is not too holding he deserves his chance in this grade.
