Grand National Festival: Ladies Day Betting Preview

We had a couple of winners at Aintree yesterday and here are Friday's selections...

1:40: Aintree - Thomas Campbell 9/1 Each Way and A Hare Breath 40/1 Each Way.

Thomas Campbell an a great race to finish fifth in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockey's Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, staying on well in the closing stages. A Hare Breath was a decent handicap hurdler and reverting back to hurdles here could help him. He represents each way value.

2:20: Aintree - Mount Mews 11/4.

Brian Hughes and Malcolm Jefferson had a winner at Aintree yesterday and I'm confident of a bold showing from this exciting six-year-old son of Presenting. An impressive winner at Kelso in G2 company last time, the drop back in trip should not inconvenience him and he is taken to win.

2:50: Aintree - Might Bite 8/13.

Almost threw away victory in the RSA Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last time after hanging to his right but when straightened up found plenty for pressure to repel stable-mate Whisper. There's no reason why he shouldn't uphold that form and he is taken to win.

3:25: Aintree - Fox Norton 4/1.

Just denied in the Champion Chase by a head after staying on strongly from the final fence. He should appreciate a flat track like Aintree and looks to have strong credentials in this G1 event which is always run at a decent gallop

4:05: Aintree - Go Conquer 10/1 Each Way and Bouvreuil 16/1 Each Way.

Go Conquer shaped well for a long way at the Cheltenham Festival in the G3 Ultima Handicap Chase and he should really appreciate the drop in the trip here. The nine-year-old son of Arcadio has also been dropped 2lb for that run and he looks the one to beat.

Bouvreuil was well touted before the Cheltenham Festival and was a creditable third at the meeting. He will like the drying ground and he makes a lot of appeal at an each way price if he takes to the fences here.

4:40: Aintree - The Worlds End 3/1.

Was travelling very well from falling at the second last fence in the Albert Bartlett at the Cheltenham Festival. Adrian Heskin had not asked the horse a question up until that point and if that fall has had no ill effects, he looks capable of taking this G1 event here.

5:15: Aintree - Black Op 4/1 and If The Cap Fits 6/1 Each Way.

Black Op was impressive when careering away from his rivals which included one of today's opposition Claimantakinforgan who subsequently finished third in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival. That form has therefore been franked in no uncertain terms and he looks well placed to run a big race.

If The Cap Fits has impressed in two victories at Plumpton and Taunton. This is a step up in class but he has looked very smart and he looks decent value to run a big race here.

11/2 Win Double

2:50: Aintree - Might Bite

4:40: Aintree - The Worlds End
