Aintree 15th April

Dark Raven (Paul) runs in the Grade 1 Novices Hurdle over 2m 4f. He ran a cracker when sixth in the Supreme at Cheltenham and if that hasn’t taken too much out of him he should run very well here. He steps up in trip here and hopefully that will bring about further improvement.

We have five chances in the Grand National over 4m 2f. Capodanno (Danny) is having his first run in a handicap and has the class to go well but the recent rain won’t help his chance. Carefully Selected (Michael O’Sullivan) stays and jumps and will appreciate the rain softened ground. Gaillard Du Mesnil (Paul) has a lot going for him. He is an out and out stayer who jumps well. He will go close. Mr Incredible (Brian Hayes) has his own way of doing things. His last couple of runs were very good and he has a light weight and will handle the ground. Recite A Prayer (Jack Foley) won’t like this ground but does have a nice racing weight.

We have two runners in the Weatherbys Bumper over 2m 1f. Blizzard Of Oz (Patrick) won nicely at Cork last time and is improving. He will like this ground and hopefully will go close. Captain Cody (Jody Townend) keeps improving and will be suited by the underfoot conditions. He has a great chance of running well again.
