Recommended Posts

I know it's not totally Patts related, but if I did win big on the National this Saturday I would be in Patts by Sunday :)

 

So any tips for the guys in the Know ;)

 

Cheers

Champion jokey Tony McCoy has opted for Colbert Station over last years runner up Sunnyhillboy, he's not a bad judge. I'm on it.

This years national is more open than ever, as ATFC Pete has mentioned McCoy is a safe bet to get round, was 25/1 at the start of the week and backed right into 7/1 today thats a shit load of money placed to get it into that price, but i think this year its back to throwing darts at the paper, this weeks results at Aintree have been laughable, Tartan Snow yesterday  100/1 sums it up i think, whatever you bet on best of luck to you all

Quel Esprit trained By W.P.MUllins is the one I fancy for each way.. he is 50/1, W.P.Mullins were on form last month in Cheltenham, Winners usually comes from the form stable...

I'm backing Seabass each way, on the advice of an Irish friend of mine who has connections in the horse racing community!

The official handicapper has put Ted Walsh’s charge up another five pounds for his performance at Aintree in 2012 to a mark of 154 which could be too steep a rise for a horse that appeared to just not last home last year. Ted Walsh has done a great job improving this son of Turtle Island over sixty pounds and the improvement may not yet be finished but it must be remembered that Seabass has yet to win over further than 22 furlongs under Rules (he has won a three mile point-to-point). His stamina did seem to ebb away in the final stages of the Grand National but with an extra year of experience and perhaps a less prominent early race ride, could he repeat the stables success of Papillon in 2000?

Big fella thanks, at 40/1 good each way bet,

Big Fella Thanks has run in three Grand Nationals finishing sixth as a raw seven-year-old in 2009, fourth in 2010 when sent of the 10/1 joint favourite and seventh in 2011. Now with Tom George after spells with Paul Nicholls and Ferdy Murphy, Big Fella Thanks tried the Becher Chase for the first time in 2012 and continued his fine run over the Aintree fences to finish third. However, it’s hard to see him doing any better in the Grand National at eleven-years-old but connections are looking forward to trying him in the Grand National again and he could squeak into the frame.

Best to spread your hard earnt in the National over several horses to add interest .   Too many ifs in this race for a tip to be really valid .  

 

The real jumping star , Sprinter Sacre ran today at Aintree , took on 2 1/2 mile specialists Flemenstar and Cue Card and made them look like novices .

Katie is a fine jockey,   but ain't no woman came close to winning it in the past.  it is as much a test of stamina for the jocks as it is the horses.  

 

For the record  i bet Imperial commander and Big Fella Thanks last week,  18/1  and  40/1  respectively.

Harry the viking and aurora's encore at massive prices. Both will see the trip out, whether or not theyre good enough remains to be seen. Harry the Viking only a 7 year old and treated incredibly well at the weights and will stay all day whilst Aurora's Encore would be much shorter if it was a better jumper. If it gets round i think it will be on the premises. Obviously thats a big if but 2nd in the scottish national and wins races at this time of the year.

 

Both horse have little weight to carry over the marathon distance which is another bonus.

 

 

Does anyone know if the race is being shown in pattaya anywhere?

Couple of horse deaths this week at Aintree. Hope there's none today in the 'Grand National' race.

They say Seabass will probably go off favourite so  all is not lost yet

That is for another thread.

 

This one is about tips for the race.
