PLEASANT COMPANY was runner-up in this race last season, two pounds better off in 2019 with Tiger Roll for just a head beating. At the current prices, he looks considerably overpriced.

Tips for Aintree Races

Located in Liverpool, Aintree is best known for being the home of the Grand National. The famous race was first run in 1839 and is the most valuable jump contest in Europe, with a prize fund of around £1m. The accompanying festival is full of quality with 10 Grade 1 races over the three days.

Course: The main course used at Aintree is the Mildmay, which is a flat mile and a half circuit. This is on the inside of the Grand National course which is about two miles and two furlongs. It is also flat but in a triangular shape. The Grand National itself is two laps of the course which is a total of thirty fences jumped. The fences are arguably the toughest in the country and our tips have to be more than assured jumpers.

Feature Meeting: The Grand National meeting takes place over three days in April and attracts the best of the best. We have tips for every contest of the festival which include runner by runner analysis of the big race itself.
