Mon Mome

Mon Mome produced a game and gutsy performance to get the better of Star De Mohaison in the three-and-a-quarter-mile handicap chase at Cheltenham. He is in the form of his life now. He gets a 4lb penalty for the Welsh National for this win, but that is not harsh, especially given that the handicapper has raised him 8lb for the future. It sees him set to carry 10st 6lb in the Welsh National instead of 10st 2lb, and his price has been cut from 10/1 to 6/1. While 6/1 is short enough, he has to make any Welsh Nationa lshortlist.
