Ruby Walsh’s Aintree betting tips:

13:45 – Bronn
14:20 – Sonigino
14:55 – Found A Fifty
15:30 – Millers Bank
16:05 – Burrows Saint
16:40 – Blenkinsop (each-way)
17:15 – Gaoth Chuil

13:45 – Gerri Colombe has had four runs this season, whereas BRONN has only had three, so Willie Mullins’ runner could be the fresher horse. He can turn the form around on Gerri Colombe after losing to him twice.

14:20 – I’ve landed on SONIGINO for Paul Nicholls with Harry Cobden on board. He hasn’t ran since he won at Huntingdon in February and he’s too big of a price not to back.

14:55 – FOUND A FIFTY ran a cracker at Naas in February when beaten by Corbetts Cross and he bolted up ahead of Parmenion at Fairyhouse before that. I like him.

15:30 – This is a pretty average renewal of the Melling and I’m with an outsider in MILLERS BANK at a price. He won here last year in the Manifesto Novices’ Chase and Kielan Woods is back on board for Alex Hales. He’s bordered on being a Grade 1 horse so I’ll back him to kick on in this.

16:05 – Willie Mullins has four in this in Haut En Couleurs, Burrows Saint, Ciel De Neige and Fan De Blues. I fancy BURROWS SAINT to kick on from his third at Down Royal in March. He’s a wonderful jumper and this should really suit him.

    16:40 – I’m going for an each-way shout in BLENKINSOP for Henry Daly. I like Stay Away Fay but he’s short at the top of the betting so I’ll side with Blenkinsop at a much bigger price. He was impressive at Newbury when last seen.

    17:15 – GAOTH CHUIL will appreciate the rain that is falling and she likes the trip. She should run a big race and Shane O’Callaghan is claiming 7lbs.
