13:30 Aintree – Noble Yeats

Last season’s Grand National winner NOBLE YEATS was very good at Wexford and he’s a horse that has been campaigned differently. He was second to Ahoy Senor at Wetherby in February, which was a run that would have qualified him for the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham but they opted to run in the Ultima instead. He was getting 5lbs from Ahoy Senor on that occasion but it was an indifferent run. I’m going to take a chance on him. He’s going in the right direction so there’s a small chance he’s still improving and could be a Gold Cup horse in time.

13:45 Sandown – Jonbon

I would hate to be opposing JONBON! Boothill looks the only danger, he had a good run in a handicap but this is a different level.

FANCY A CHANCE TO WIN £/€25K?

14:05 Aintree – The Wolf

Did I think Captain Kangaroo would win the Cork National? No. If you told me two months ago he’d then win the Becher Chase I’d have taken your temperature. I don’t fancy him and the same goes for Willie Mullins other runner Recite A Prayer. THE WOLF is interesting. The run behind Lord Accord at Cheltenham was pretty decent and should have left him spot on for this.

14:20 Sandown – Martator

I am worried about the ground for Love Envoi as her best hurdles’ form has been on slower ground. I’m going to take a chance on Venetia Williams’ MARTATOR. His French form, all be it over a year ago, is quite strong behind Hermes Baie and some of those were Grade 1 races. He’s had a wind op and been given plenty of time to acclimatise with Venetia so he could be a star.

14:40 Aintree – Riders Onthe Storm

I can’t believe RIDERS ONTHE STORM is only 2lbs higher for beating Hitman, who has won twice since, and Ga Law, who won the Paddy Power, in the Old Roan so the form is rock solid. He’s my pick!

14:55 Sandown – Shishkin

If he runs, SHISHKIN will win. If he doesn’t, Greaneteen will win. Every horse can have an off day and the comments from the yard last week were very positive about Shishkin so they’re obviously very happy about him. Gentleman De Mee will need a career best to beat these two.

15:15 Aintree – Walking On Air

I’m all over WALKING ON AIR. I think this fella’s chucked in off a mark of 132.

15:30 Sandown – In Rem

The favourite’s a bit skimpy, I was skipping by Deise Aba and I’m not sure about Quick Wave’s Ludlow form so I ended up taking a poke on one because it’s wearing headgear from the first time and that’s IN REM. He didn’t jump great at Uttoxeter, was off the bridle a long way out and clouted a couple of fences. If the cheekpieces work and he jumps better and keep himself some way in the contest, he’s fit and he’ll keep going. It’s a poke, not a confident pick.
