5 Apr 2019 Race Previews

We have four runners in the Grand National over 4m 2f. Paul has elected to ride Pleasant Company who went so close to winning this race last year. He has been prepared for this all year and the ground will be fine for him. He has more weight this time round but that shouldn’t be a problem for a horse of his size and scope. We are expecting a big run. Ruby has chosen Rathvinden who looks a perfect candidate for a race like this. He jumps well and will handle the ground. There is a lot to like about him. Up For Review (Danny) was running well in Cheltenham until he made a mistake. That run should bring him on and he could finish in the first four or five here. Livelovelaugh has a lovely racing weight and David has a great record around here.
