2 pts win ASK THE WEATHERMAN 14/1 ( at least ten firms)
1 pt win ON THE ROAD  20/1 ( at least seven firms)
Welsh Grand National

Ask The Weatherman has won nine of his ten point-to-point starts and though he finished only seventh in the Cheltenham Foxhunters, he was not beaten far at all. He gave weight away all round when winning at Exeter in November on his seasonal debut. His connections have had numerous quality animals pass through their hands down the years and Ask The Weatherman, who acts in the mud, will not be here to make up the numbers.

On The Road has only had five outing over fences but was progressing pretty quickly at the end of last season. He acts in testing ground and appeals as one who will stay this trip. Had a nice sharpener over hurdles on his seasonal debut and catches the eye off a low weight.

Lost - 3 pts
