1.30 – Aintree – The Becher Chase
Using the betting guide I cannot nail down a winner as so many horses have the ability or pedigree to do well here. So I am considering a good each way bet on WALK IN THE MILL who runs well on Soft (But if it gets heavy then cash out !), has placed this season and is in the right age and OR range.
1.50 Sandown – Henry VIII Chase
It could very well be that Lalo will win this having some good previous wins at Class 1 but in order to add a bit of value to my picks I am going to go for DYNAMITE DOLLARS. This horse was well beaten by Lalor last time out but the stats suggest that it should do better, being the right age and a Paul Nicholls Horse in a race that has been won 4 times in the last 10 years by that stable.
2.05 Aintree – Many Clouds Chase
I cannot see beyond DEFINITLY RED for this race although have good claims for the win. Acdc has not run in a Class 1 race before so this may well be too much to ask. One for Arthur has been off with injury since the Grand National win so not sure how prepared he will be. Double Shuffle is probably the biggest threat, but has not won a Class 1 race yet.
3.00 Sandown – Tingle Creek
Again all the horses have very good claims to the win here, favourites are slightly preferred here and more so on softer ground. So for that reason and the fact that I cannot see this horse ever being beaten ALTIOR has to be the pick.
