In depth

Verdict

Pinerolo has plenty to find on these terms and will do well to get involved in the finish. Indian Castle followed up a win over hurdles with victory on his chasing bow at this track. He drops back in trip today, but MANY CLOUDS looks to have the stronger form and gets the nod. Oliver Sherwood's charge scored at Carlisle on his chasing debut and found only the subsequent Grade 2 winner Black Thunder too good at Haydock last time. A repeat should see him home and dry in this.
