Michael Scudamore is confident that Monbeg Dude can bounce back to form in the Aintree Grand National on April 5th.
Monbeg Dude could only finish fifth in the Grimthorpe Chase at Doncaster last time out but Scudamore doesn’t believe that will hold him back on Merseyside.
The trainer commented: "I am delighted with him. "He hadn't run for a long time and we needed to get a race into him and we came here knowing this ground would be a bit too quick and the course would be a bit too sharp. But the way he kept on galloping, I think we've got to walk away happy.
"We've got a month now to freshen him up and prepare him for the Grand National. In terms of where we want to be with him, it's a big box ticked."
