Mendip Scotland Bound
Our team for the Cheltenham Festival will now not include Mendip Express who held entries in the National Hunt Chase and the RSA.
He has had a marvellous season until his recent defeat at Newbury on extremely testing ground.
But he had a hard race that day so we feel it makes sense to by-pass Cheltenham and aim him instead for the Scottish Grand National on Saturday 12th April.
I have already taken him out of the RSA and he will not be confirmed for the NH Chase.
Stamina and jumping are Mendip Express's greatest assets so we hope that the race in Scotland will suit him very well.
