Aintree special

We go to Carlisle today for a competitive novices’ chase. The going at the Cumbria track is Good to Soft. The forecast is for rain all morning and then a dry afternoon.

After looking at the 2.15 there is also news on a special membership centred around the Aintree Grand National meeting.

2.15 2m4f totepool Cashback Club At Novices’ Chase (Class 3) (5yo+)

Secrete Stream and Ballycrystal set the standard, although both have something to prove.

Secrete Stream was very disappointing on latest start and is fitted with first time blinkers.

The better ground conditions will suit.

Ballycrystal returned from a break to run in a jumpers bumper at Newcastle four weeks ago. That run would have would teed him up for today.

Elusive Theatre ran well on her latest start and should figure. However she would need to improve to beat the above pair if either give there running.

I price the race as follows:

Ballycrystal         5/2

Secrete Stream  11/4

Elusive Theatre  4/1

Alzamaar            8/1

Bollin Ace           9/1

33/1 bar



The Grand National is now just two weeks away and we have a special membership covering the entire Aintree week. Membership runs from next Saturday through to Sunday 15th and is just £20. For more details go to:
