Many Clouds: LIkely to run at Kempton
Many Clouds is likely to take his chance in the Grade One Kauto Star Novices' Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.
Oliver Sherwood's EBF Final runner-up made an impressive start to his career over fences at Carlisle in early November and was far from disgraced when chasing home Black Thunder at Haydock almost three weeks later.
With conditions likely to be on the soft side at Kempton, Sherwood believes his charge merits a place in the field for the race better known as the Feltham Novices' Chase.
"I need to speak to Mick Meagher (racing manager for owner Trevor Hemmings) to confirm things, but looking at the weather, I think he will almost certainly run in the Feltham," said the Upper Lambourn trainer.
"We'll probably meet Paul Nicholls' horse that beat us last time (Black Thunder), so we'll see what happens."
