2 pts win VINTAGE CLOUDS 16/1 ( at least 5 firms)
1 pt win DANCING SHADOW 40/1( at least 8 firms)
Scottish Grand National

Vintage Clouds has faced stiff tasks on all of his last three starts, his good third at Haydock splitting two runs when he hit the deck when in the process of running respectable races. Still in his novice season he's already shown that he's going to be a competitor in these big marathon events as he looks the type who'll improve over today's trip and give a very good account of  himself.

Dancing Shadow has improved in the region of 20 lb this season and relished this sort of trip when winning at Musselburgh on today's ground on his penultimate start, showing that he's in his element on good ground. He was beaten too far out at Cheltenham last time to conclude anything other that he was not himself. Could bounce back with a good run here.

Lost - 3 pts
