2pts win SUN CLOUD 7/1 (Generally available) Betfred Midlands Grand National
1pt win ALFIE SPINNER 33/1 (Generally available) Betfred Midlands Grand National

A progressive staying handicap chase with just six races over fences under his belt, Sun Cloud is just the sort that Malcolm Jefferson gets the best out of and he is a likely winner of this. After two ready style victories where he looked to have got his jumping together, he fell when beginning to take closer order in the Eider. Hopefully there won't be any repeat of that and he can carry on where he'd left off previously.

Alfie Spinner hasn't won since 14 starts and 27 months ago but the level of form he has shown this season indicates that all the ability is still there. The only time today's rider has been aboard was when he ran a cracker at Sandown in December and he looks very much set to outrun his odds.

Lost - 3pts
