MANY CLOUDS enjoyed his finest hour at Aintree when winning the Grand National in 2015, and the nine-year-old was superb again at the track when winning a Listed Chase on Saturday.
Leighton Aspell enjoyed the best seat in the house as Many Clouds had his way out in front, jumping easily in the lead.
None of his four rivals were ever able to lay a glove on him, with Le Mercurey and then Minella Rocco coming to challenge in the straight.
The latter took a heavy fall when coming at the last, but happily got to his feet having been badly winded.
