The Grand National is all about having a bit of fun! Even if you have no interest in horse racing, the Saturday feature is always a race that can bring the nation together. People who never bet at all may have a five pound note on their favourite number or silks that they like. Aintree is a really special week, that’s for sure.
Sticking to the fun theme, we have come up with a wacky double for you golf fans out there. The US Masters is on this week and we have come up with a monster 2,120-1 Grand National and Masters double that could whet the appetite. This double at this price can only be backed with William Hill so open your account now and best of luck.
Trained by Willie Mullins, AGUSTA GOLD seems to be an overlooked horse in the market. For those of you who don’t know, the US Masters is held at Augusta, Georgia in the United States every year. This horse will love the forecast rain and travelled powerfully for a long way over 3m2f at Down Royal in March. She finished ahead of Samcro that day, runs off a feather weight and if the ground comes up soft or heavy, she has to enter the reckoning.
This could be the week for BECHER’S BROOKS KOEPKA, who comes to life in major championships. Koepka is finally healthy after a spell of not being 100 per cent so the rest of the field better watch out. He has finished inside the top 10 in over 50 percent of the majors that he’s played in his career, and he has also finished inside the top 11 in three of his last four Masters starts. A powerful player with no weaknesses when he is on song, he will fancy it this week.
