GRAND NATIONAL: BETTING PREVIEW & PICK

GRAND NATIONAL: BETTING PREVIEW & PICK

4.00 MR INCREDIBLE 14/1 (17/1 Exchanges)

We were big (14/1) on CORACH RAMBLER when he won last year’s Grand National, in which he delivered. In fact, despite idling close home, he won with a fair bit in hand! As for this time around, a 13-pound higher mark will make it more difficult. Nevertheless, according to official figures, he’s 3 pounds well-in! 

Linda Russell’s 10-year-old will defend his crown after running a good third in the Gold Cup. He’s been laid out for the race and should peak. On the downside, he’s half the odds, and based on the data at hand I would make him nearer 10/1. 

The well-supported MAHLER MISSION is interesting. The 8-year-old is improving from race to race, and he’s been kept fresh for the challenge ahead. He should jump these fences and the drying ground will suit him best.

My issue with PANDA BOY is he tends to get behind in his races. I would also question a handicap mark of 146. I also wonder about his resolve to win. While Martin Brassil is a competent trainer, he’s been handed a poor set of cards!

KITTY’S LIGHT is a strong stayer who is capable of better. Christian Williams will have the 8-year-old spot on for the challenge ahead! The drying ground will help the son of NATHANIEL, and he could run into a place.

Willie Mullins is saddling eight runners in this race, five of them appear to be no-hopers. For the record, we are referring to SLATTLER, GLENGOULY, JANIDIL, ADAMANTLY CHOSEN and CAPODONNA.

Mullins stable jockey Paul Townsend is riding the second-favourite I AM MAXIMUS. The 8-year-old most recently won a 4-runner Fairyhouse race by 14 lengths from one of today’s opponents VANNILIER. He conceded 12 pounds in that race, thus he’s 4 pounds better off with last year’s Grand National runner-up. On the downside, the second favourite isn’t the slickest of jumpers, and these fences are unforgiving.

As for VANNILIER, the grey would have been more interesting if he had won more races. His last win was 2.5 years ago.

Another of the Mullins runners MEETINGOFTHEWATERS is error prone. While these big fences could help him concentrate, he’s one I would want to avoid!

Brian Hayes and Mr Incredible

TIP OF THE DAY

While I’m slightly worried about the bounce effect for MR INCREDIBLE, I’ll trust the Irish maestro to have him at his peak. I like the way he jumped the National fences last year, in which a slipping saddle cost him his chance. 

The 8-year-old will be well handled by his regular jockey Brian Hayes, and he will be fitter following an excellent comeback 2nd in the Midland Grand National. A nice racing weight is an extra incentive, and he handles all types of ground!
