1.30 Cheltenham – Mengli Khan (e/w) – 3rd 14/1

Although we’d have preferred slightly better ground, we’re still expecting a massive run from Mengli Khan and noises from the Gordon Elliott yard are suggesting the same. He looked very good early in the season, winning three on the bounce including the Grade 1 Royal Bond at Fairyhouse where he was very impressive, and those wins were on pretty soft ground; so he acts on it plenty well enough. He bizarrely ran out when leading next time and then ran a decent race when 2nd to Getabird when giving weight away. Whilst eh was beaten a fair way, he clouted the final hurdle and it’s suggested he wasn’t at his best that day, a big run is expected.
