Coach Stuart Coltherd is hoping for a great run from Captain Redbeard who’s at present a one hundred-1 shot.

"Captain Redbeard is in wonderful type at house and has come out of his latest race at Haydock in nice form," stated his coach Stuart Coltherd.

"That was a very good efficiency over the longest journey he's tried, so we have been delighted with that run, notably off a profession-excessive mark.

"Every part's good and his work has been good at house. The plan was to run at Kelso on Saturday, however with the climate enjoying havoc with the racing schedule, there's a probability that the assembly gained't go forward. He'll run if the climate is OK as the race matches properly into our schedule.

"If we will't run on Saturday, then we'll look to run him some place else as I'm eager to get one other outing into him earlier than the Randox Well being Grand National."

 

Bristol De Mai, Vyta Du Roc, Noble Endeavor, Abolitionist, Silsol, Three Faces West and Missed Strategy have been amongst the 14 horses taken out at the latest forfeit stage.
