Grand National Ante Post Tips

Tuesday 26th March 2019

The Cheltenham Festival is the focus of the national world for the majority of the winter but with the Prestbury Park spectacular now behind us, attention is quickly turning to Liverpool.

The Grand National odds are the most popular of the entire season as the wider sporting world tunes in for their annual fix of jumps racing. The world's most famous steeplechase is watched by millions and this year will be no different as the best trainers in the UK and Ireland try to claim the biggest race in the sport.

Tiger Roll is the defending champion and the one to beat following his Cross Country Chase win at Cheltenham in stunning style with many believing he is the best chance at a double winner since Red Rum dominated the race in the 70s.

It is far from a one horse race though with Vintage Clouds many peoples pick to claim the glory for trainer Sue Smith.

The popular grey will be running in the green and yellow colours of Trevor Hemmings which are synonymous with the Aintree race. Ballabriggs and Hedgehunter both won the National for the famous owner and Vintage clouds warmed up for a tilt with a fantastic run in the Ultima Handicap at Cheltenham when 2nd.

The 9-year-old was well fancied for the National last year but narrowly failed to make the cut which lead to a run in the Scottish Grand National. A 3rd place finish at Ayr confirmed his stamina and the Aintree test should suit a horse who jumps and stays more than well enough to feature in the business end of the most important race of the season.

There is no doubt that Tiger Roll is the one to beat this season but Vintage Clouds is the value pick to take on and beat the ante-post favourite over the world famous National fences.
