1:45 Aintree

Burbank looks a typical Aintree horse. He has had a very light season, and in both runs showed some encouraging signs. He has looked like a step up in trip will suit and a return to form puts him a fair few pounds well in here.

1 Point EW 28/1 5 places Lads 25/1 elsewhere


Some Buckle sticks out here after a reasonable run at Cheltenham after a long break. He is well able to get competitive of this mark and if he is on a going day 50/1 is going to look big.

The Bet365 offer is just too good to ignore, here are my 2 picks in addition to Valseur Lido already advised. 8 Points Total Spend with 4 Points Returned

  • Monbeg Notorius, has a nice profile for this. He’s a young horse that’s a sure stayer and has had a light season.
  • 2 Points EW 66/1 365 5 places
  • Minella Rocco, is on a decent mark has surly been readied for this for a long time, and we’ll all be kicking ourselves if he runs a big race
  • 2 Points EW 40/1 365 5 places

Aintree 6:20

All Set to go ran well in this last year of a higher mark. He has actually won 3 races since (2 of those chases), and is still2 lbs lower. He will be better suited by the reasonably ground today and 66/1 seems very big.
