3.15 VINTAGE CLOUDS – Haydock (15/2) with BETFAIR (1/4 odds)
VINTAGE CLOUDS is my selection for this tough 3m4f test today and is also my selection on this week’s podcast. He’s a very interesting runner for me as he seems to love it around here and has a real good record at the track (HAYDOCK) with form figures reading 12222F. That’s real consistency and he’s never finished out of the first two at the track when completing.
VINTAGE CLOUDS was in the process of running a solid race in the Peter Marsh Chase here (3m,soft) last time where he looked book for 3rd place, only 5 lengths down but fell three fences out. Who knows what might have happened but the form took a boost with the runner-up that day winning next time out and VINTAGE CLOUDS was making his handicap debut there including he was out of the handicap.
He runs off 6lb lower today and has serious potential off this mark. Interestingly, BRIAN HUGHES was already booked to ride the horse before the final declarations were announced and the only time he’s ridden this horse before was a winning combination. VINTAGE CLOUDS seems ground versatile and this massive step-up in trip should really play to his strengths as he’s a grinder and has a lot of pace.
BRIAN HUGHES is having a season to remember and his style of riding will suit this horse well in a tough contest. VINTAGE CLOUDS carries a very light weight 10-10, and has a major each-way chance at a track where he loves racing. His record around here is very consistent and I have every bit of confidence he will run very well again here.
