Racing Tips For Aintree Grand National Meeting
Yesterday started off very well when my top system came up with a good bet in Apple’s Jade who was backed in the 3/1 and romped in by a huge 41 lengths. It was a superb performance.
Cue Card made amends for his fall in the Gold Cup and Djakadam while travelling well had very little to offer at the business end and only finished in 3rd at 5/2. As expected the top three in the market did fight out the finish not that it was much of a fight however as the winner did win comfortably and it begs the question once again, would he have won the Gold Cup?
In the 4.40 Fayette County played up big time before the off, he reared and took a bit of a fall before the off! The horse did however appear to travel well enough and in the end he probably just wasn’t good enough.
My last selection La Bague Au Roi did lead four out but was soon ridden and finished only in 7th place which was disappointing. The 14/1 winner was however an AA (Backer’s Edge System) selection too.
1.40 No.8 Starchitect
This looks a very open event but this horse qualifies pretty well and with a trouble free passage he should be able to run a big race on form.
2.15 No.11 Limini
This looks tougher than the betting suggests but the price has drifted for this horse and she is just about my pick on form to date.
2.50 I have a Strong Bet in this race.
3.25 It’s very hard to see past Vautour and with a trouble free run he should win comfortably.
4.05 No.20 Minella Reception
This is probably the toughest race to call but if the horse runs as well as he has been doing he should run well.
4.40 I can’t find a stand out horse in this race.
5.15 No.1 Ballyandy
This horse just about edges it ahead of Battleford but there could be a surprise from a slightly less exposed runner and not a race I’d want to risk much on.
Best of luck if you are having a bet.
