Well another good day yesterday with LOSTINTRANSLATION landing for us at 100/30 in the Mildmay Novices’ Chase and showing why I regard him has one of the top novices of the season.
In this post I will cover the main three Grade 1’s of Day 3 at Aintree and then tomorrow I will post a separate post with my selections for the Grand National itself. If you watch the video below you will see the tactic I use to narrow down the field of 40 horses to the most likely winners of the race, this is a technique I have used over the years to find the winner on multiple occasions. So watch and enjoy

But before the big race we need to focus on the three Grade 1’s of the final day.
2:25 Mersey Novices’ Hurdle
I am going to keep faith with my Supreme Novice pick ANGELS BREATH who made a mistake three out when going strongly and never recovered. This step up in trip to 2m 4f will really suit and I can see him bouncing back.
RP TIP: ANGELS BREATH – 2pts to win at 3/1
3:00 Maghull Novices’ Chase
Despite winning the Arkle Trial at Cheltenham in November, LALOR never got going in the Arkle at the Festival. However, he can make amends here on a course where he has run twice and won twice, including the Grade 1 Top Novices’ Hurdle last year.
RP TIP: LALOR – 2pts to win at 7/2
3:40 Ryanair Stayers Hurdle
Although she is the obvious one I have to go with APPLE’S JADE to re-find her form after her disappointing run in the Champion Hurdle at the Festival, which was too bad to be true. The step back up to 3m will suit and with conditions in her favour, it is hard to see her getting beaten by this field.
RP TIP: APPLE’S JADE – 3pts to win at 7/4
I will post around lunchtime tomorrow with my picks for the Grand National, if you have not managed to narrow the field down by watching the video and using what I show in there.
