It’s day two of the Aintree 2021 meet, which means we’re just one day away from the most magical race in every punter’s book – The Grand National at 17:15 on Saturday April 10.
Don’t miss it!
Between then and now there’s also a raft of great racing from the Merseyside course to entertain, delight – and possibly provide a few winners.
To help out with that, Paddy has searched far and wide (okay, the contacts on his phone) for the best brains in the racing business – Mick Fitzgerald, Timeform, Frank Hickey and Matt Chapman – to put together our day two cheat sheet.
And he’s even drawing on his own, err, encyclopaedic equine knowledge to throw in his own tips in as well!
There are a whopping great FOUR Grade 1 races on Friday, all of them live on your tellybox, and if that doesn’t float your boat there’s the Topham Chase at 4:05 as well, which gives us a sneak peek of the Grand National fences a day early.
Here are some of our pundits’ favourite picks for the top races of the day:
For the day’s first race, our trader Frank Hickey says: “MONTE CRISTO ran much better than his finishing position in the Coral Cup implies.”
In the Grade 1 Steeple Chase at 3:25, Matt Chapman says: “This is the perfect rack for POLITOLOGUE who won this race a few seasons back.”
And Mick Fitzgerald had this to say on the 4:05 Handicap Chase: “PRECIOUS CARGO has had a wind operation and shaped well on his first run after it at Warwick. Makes each-way appeal at a nice price.”
So if you want to be the toast of the Whatsapp group on Friday evening, you can read up on all of Friday’s tips here.
