Watching brief

James Motherway's Bluesea Cracker is excellent value at up to 14/1 for the Welsh National on December 27. This year's Irish Grand National hero was last seen running a blinder on unfavourably dry ground when fourth at Cheltenham last month.

She has since been dropped a pound for that and would race off 10st at Chepstow if the top-weight stands its ground.

Off just a 9lb higher mark than her Fairyhouse triumph, she remains well handicapped, and it's hard to imagine a more suitable target for her than the Chepstow slog.
