Well a cracking start to Aintree with Mad Max yesterday – made up for his blunders at Cheltenham – and the reports from the yard backed up he was no worse for his efforts. It shows the importance of solid information to back up the form. Make sure you are getting the “Best odds guarantee” on your bets from whoever you are using – ended up getting 6/1 yesterday and a nice +15 pts profit.
On to today:
2:00 Menorah – after giving us such a good result at Cheltenham this Phillip Hobbs horse is sure to be well backed today – but I can only see him going on to add to his win – Cheltenham was his first run out this year and the yard feel he will be fresh enough to take todays race. I’m going 3 pts to win – grab the 13/8 from Bet365 and get the best odds guarantee.
4:20 Hopeful Start – a real progressive horse in a very competetive race today. The trip and conditions will be no problem today – he has a great engine and jumps well. He has stepped up in grade but the yard are confident he is up to this and with the booking of Mccoy today being a major positive he is looking a great each way bet at 16/1. I’m going 1pt each way.
Have a great day all – I’m heading to get some more sun !!!
