Clayton relishes testing conditions and makes plenty of appeal at 7/1 in the 3.35 at Sandown today.
After hpaing as if needing his first two runs this season, Gary Moore’s charge got back on the scoresheet at Lingfield last month when gamely beating Sea Wall by a short-head on soft ground off a mark of 117.
He has been raised just 3lb for that success and a revsied rating of 120 should not be beyond him given that he was rated 126 when runner-up to Peter The Mayo Man at Newbury back in November 2016 before injury ruled him out of most of last season.
Clayton clearly reyains plenty of ability and his form figures on soft/heavy ground over hurdles read 212021.
The stable has also been amongest the winners of late and off a featherweight of just 10st 3lb everything looks in place for a huge run.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Clayton (7/1 bet365 – BOG, 1/4 odds 1,2,3)
