He may have unseated Sam Waley-Cohen in the Foxhunters Chase at the 2012 Cheltenham Festival but Roulez Cool is still on track for the 2012 Grand National and given that Oscar Time has been ruled out due to injury, Roulez remains the Waley-Cohen’s only hope at a shot of the title this year.
[Racecard Roulez Cool]
Trained by Robert Waley-Cohen, the owner of Long Run, Roulez Cool was going well at Cheltenham and right up there in the lead pack before getting rid of his rider at the ninth fence.
But it seems that’s not enough to dissuade trainer and owner Robert Waley-Cohen from pulling the plus on his National hopes. Instead, the nine-year-old could now run at Newbury tomorrow before heading to Aintree on April 14.
Waley-Cohen snr said: “He came back in good order.
“I’ve entered him for Newbury on Friday as he only really went a mile before cantering back.
“He had been off a long while so he just got a bit too excited and over exuberant.
“I’ve left him in the Grand National and I won’t be scratching him on Tuesday, which is the next stage.
“He’s got a nice weight of 10st 5lb, which Sam could do, and I think he’s a horse that could go well there.”
Roulez Cool has been given 10-05 for the National on April 14th and is currently 33/1 ante-post, with Paddy Power bookmakers!BET NOW - CLICK HERE
