So today is the start of the aintree festival, there are a few serious horses in contention here so I have gone for value I have made a selection for most races, some are obvious e/w shots as I’m taking on the clear fave. I won’t be advising points for this, but what ever you do make sure you play sensible I have personally covered these with a ew lucky 63.
Aintree Day one
13:45 – cloudy dream
should give top notch a good race, the ground will suit both cloudy and top notch, top notch comes into this off the back of a mighty impressive performance in the JLT at chelts, but there Ian no value for a bet. Cloudy dream had a equally great chance providing it can play a effective role in its new trip obv the horse is un exposed in this but I feel it has enough in the tank to progress further.
14:20 Divin Bere
I feel defi will take this race, but like before can’t play at the price, won brilliantly at Cheltenham, divin beat flying tiger lto therefore ruling itself with a chance, I feel there may be a mistake made within this race with gerraghty back on board defi so will chance this play.
2:50 Empire Of Dirt
Horse has to do a lot better here, and I feel cue cards ship has sailed. Empire will certainly like the drier ground and trip, I feel this race will be there for it’s taking.
4:05 On The Fringe
was a big upset to see this horse not won the foxhunters at chelt but I felt Jamie codd left it too late and by then there was too much to do, we will see a different ride tomorrow and pretty sure otf will win this.
4:40 Double W’s
was clear to see the horse wasn’t in favour of the extended trip at chelts, back down to a trip horse has good form over and should find this comfortable
5:15 Maria’s benefit
going to chance this Edmonds horse the price is huge considering how much potential she has, it’s a wide open race but can’t ignore then 25’s.
