Finding The Winner Of The Haydock Grand National Trial 2016

With the clock ticking down until the 2016 Cheltenham Festival which is now less than a month away, we also had the weights revealed for this year’s Grand National on Tuesday, with Many Clouds having to carry top weight of 11st 10lb to defend his crown on 9th April. One race we all need to keep an eye on is tomorrow’s Grand National Trial at Haydock Park.

On Saturday, we’ll witness a trio of cracking showpieces including the Reynoldstown Novices’ Chase and Betfair Ascot Chase at Ascot, not to mention the race we’re concentrating on here – the Grand National Trial at Haydock.

Aimed to give punters early clues as to who they should back in the major Aintree event itself which is two months away on April 9th, what we’ve seen in yesteryear is exactly NONE of the winners of the Grand National Trial going on to win the major event itself since 1980.

Saturday 20th February 2016 – Grand National Trial – Ascot

JUMP 1While drawing clues from the Grand National Trial has proved difficult in regards to selecting the Grand National winner thus far, finding the winner of the Trial event itself may prove a little easier.

Four times out of 13 Grand National Trial races, the winning horse had ran in the Welsh Grand National last time out and that is true of Kerry Lee’s Mountainous with the 11yo the shortest priced to succeed on Saturday afternoon.

Having beat off second-placed Firebird Flyer by two-and-three quarter lengths in the 3m5f110y Welsh Grand National at Chepstow on January 9th, Mountainous is around 7/2 to claim glory in the 2:40pm Grand National Trial.

Cloudy Too is second favourite with the bookies at the moment and boasts the benefit of having romped home round this very course in a 3m24y back on January 23rd.

Winning by 15 lengths on that occasion, Sue Smith’s 10yo should be able to handle himself this time around too.
