Any Second Now
I’m going to stick with Any Second Now as my number one. He was unlucky in the race last year and did incredibly well to get back to finish third. He’s 7lbs higher but what is a worry is that he has to carry 11st 8lbs. He had 10st 9lbs on his back last year so it shows the top of the race isn’t quite as good. He’s in great form and has had a good preparation.
I’m with Longhouse Poet as my number two. He was a good winner of the Thyestes and had a run over hurdles by the time the weights came out. He battled well to beat Franco De Port in the Thyestes and better ground at Aintree on Saturday will suit.
If Delta Work gets into a rhythm, he’s the class horse and better horses are starting to win the Grand National. It’s just the way it’s gone.
He was really impressive in the Cross Country. I loved the way he jumped. A big-field handicap is a bit of an unknown but he couldn’t have been more impressive than he was at Cheltenham when beating Tiger Roll, which is a great trial for the Grand National.
Fiddlerontheroof could be the best of the British. I loved the way he travelled at Newbury in the Ladbrokes Trophy. He then had a break before a comeback run at Ascot behind Fortescue.
He’ll have the pace to travel in a good position and with that last run under his belt he could have improved for this.
