The Aintree Grand National Festival continues this Friday after Thursday saw Silviniaco Conti and The New One win the two biggest races of the day.
7 races are scheduled for Friday with the feature taking place at 3:05, the Betfred Melling Chase.
Our betting tips for Friday are below:
2:00 International Festival For Business 2014 Top Novices’ Hurdle – Mijhaar, a 100 rated horse on the flat, takes another chance at hurdling after falling when looking beaten last time out as the 1/2 favourite. Should be capable of better and has a lot of potential to improve.
2:30 Betfred Mobile Mildmay Novices’ Chase – Many Clouds was pulled up here last year and was unfortunately brought down when running at the 2014 Cheltenham Festival – has pieces of form that are good enough to win a race of this nature and offers value from an each-way perspective.
3:05 Betfred Melling Chase – Toner D’Oudairies would be a surprise winner of this race however he has form behind Arvika Ligeonniere who was fancied to win the Champion Chase at Cheltenham this year and could be worth a look at larger odds.
3:40 Crabbie’s Supporting Everton In The Community Topham Chase – Poole Master likes to front run and although has looked short of stamina on occasion, could be worth an each-way look being relatively unexposed for a good trainer/jockey combination.
4:15 Doom Bar Sefton Novices’ Hurdle – Tagrita has won 3 of 4 starts, is open to improvement stepping up in class.
4:50 Alder Hey Children’s Charity Handicap Hurdle – Aazif is sure to be a massive price to win this race (33/1) – has ran well of late and is bottom weighted in a very tough looking race.
5:25 Concerto Group Mares’ Standard Open NH Flat Race – with very little form to go on, Oleohneh is as good as any having won last time out and can potentially build on that after disappointing previously.
