Many Clouds could run in the Betfair Denman Chase at Newbury rather than the Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham.

Trainer Oliver Sherwood is understandably not too keen to tackle effortless King George VI Chase winner and Gold Cup favourite Thistlecrack at this stage of the season.
With the Randox Health Grand National once again his major aim, Sherwood would rather take the easier option with the 2015 Aintree hero.
Meanwhile, Altior is unlikely to line up in the Clarence House Chase at Ascot on Saturday week.
Nicky Henderson has entered the exciting novice in the Grade One contest and he is second-favourite with most bookmakers behind Tingle Creek winner Un De Sceaux.
But while Henderson could still run him outside novice company before the Cheltenham Festival, it is now more likely to be in the Game Spirit Chase at Newbury in February.
Another top-class novice housed at Seven Barrows is Might Bite and he showed when falling in the Kauto Star Novices’ Chase at Kempton with the race at his mercy, that three miles is undoubtedly his trip.
It was a heavy fall to boot, so as well as missing out on a Grade One, connections are now having to be patient.
