Aintree Tips

13:45 – 2m4f Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)

Despite the burden of top weight, WILDE ABOUT OSCAR (1 point win bet at 6/1) looks to have a good chance of landing this competitive handicap and registering another winner for Harry Skelton, who is all out to become Champion Jockey for the first time. This son of Oscar has a very progressive profile apart from one blip in his form when he was pulled up in the Grade 1 Challow Hurdle following a bad mistake. Overall, he has won four of his five starts over hurdles including a 16-length victory at Aintree as a novice. He comes here in really good form after an impressive win at Uttoxeter last time out when having to concede plenty of weight to his rivals.

Lower in the weights is NIGHTBOATTOCLYRO (0.5 point win bet at 25/1), who has had a fine season with three consecutive wins before a solid placed effort at Kempton last month. Conditions should suit this seven-year-old as will the return to a left-handed track and a likely strong pace.

Grand National Tips

16:05 – 2m5f Randox Topham Handicap Chase (Grade 3)

I’ve picked out four 0.5 point bets for this 28 runner contest over the Grand National fences.

TWO FOR GOLD (0.5 point win bet at 12/1) and IBLEO (0.5 point win bet at 12/1) are two horses that I have followed closely this season. They bring class and consistency to the race but will have to carry a big weight as a result. Two For Gold was last seen running well behind the Grand National favourite Cloth Cap, and trainer Kim Bailey considers him to be a National horse for the future. He is a good jumper and this test will reveal more. Ibleo ran on well to finish third in the Grand Annual Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last month. He too is a reliable jumper and remains open to plenty more improvement.

At bigger prices, I am also taking a chance on LUST FOR GLORY (0.5 point win bet at 40/1) and COURT MASTER (0.5 point win bet at 25/1). Lust For Glory is a representative of Nicky Henderson, who won this race in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Sam Waley-Cohen, renowned for his ability over these fences, takes the ride and this mare will be doing her best work at the finish on ground she will relish. Finally, Court Master will be looking to follow up his recent Kelso victory. He has a low weight and has been running well in competitive handicaps all season.
