GRAND NATIONAL, ARTICLE SIX

NOTHING IS A GUARANTEE, UNLESS LUCK IS WITH YOU!!

 

THE IRISH GRAND NATIONAL WAS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE MEAN. WE HAD THE IDEAS BUT SOMEBODY ELSE HAD OTHER IDEAS. WE JUST LOST ON THE LINE AND MORE WAS UNLUCKY A LITTLE FURTHER BACK.

WITH LADY LUCK ON OUR SIDE WE HOPE TO NAME THE WINNER BY NEXT SATURDAY, GRAND NATIONAL DAY AT AINTREE, LIVERPOOL.

 

TOP WEIGHTS ARE FAVOURITES TOO!!

 

NOT FOR US HERE!!

 

THERE ARE TWO HORSES THAT INTEREST US HERE AND THEY ARE BOTH OF THE CLASS. 

- ANIBALE FLY RAN A GREAT RACE IN THE GOLD CUP AT CHELTENHAM BUT WAS THAT SO GOOD TO BE ABLE TO GIVE OTHER HORSES OVER A STONE AT A LONGER TRIP? SEEMINGLY, HE SEEMS TO STAY BUT OUR ASSESSMENT SAYS HE WONT DO IT AND PERHAPS HE WONT JUMP THAT WELL AROUND AINTREE. IT IS OF COURSE AN ASSUMPTION AND WE MIGHT BE ABSOLUTELY OFF THE MARK.

- THE NEXT HORSE IS BLAKLION, THE HORSE THAT RAN VERY WELL LAST YEAR AND MOST LIKELY WILL RUN AS WELL THIS YEAR. CARRYING MORE WEIGHT AGAINST ANY OTHER HORSE IS A BIG ASK HERE BUT HE MUST BE THE MOST POPULAR SELECTION COME THE DAY. HIS RUN THE OTHER DAY IN HEAVY GOING, BEST BE FORGOTTEN.

- THE LAST SAMURAI IS POSSIBLY THE OTHER ONE IN THE RACE TO THINK ABOUT. WE ARE NOT SURE HE WILL STAY AT ALL, WE ARE NOT CONVINCED THE HORSES OF THE TRAINER ARE IN ANY FORM AT ALL AND SO WE SAY NO TO THIS HORSE WITH CONVICTION, EVEN THOUGH THAT IS NOT A GOOD POLICY!!

THAT SUMS UP ALL THE CATEGORIES WEIGHT WISE. WE WILL RETURN ON THE FORM OF HORSES AND TRAINERS IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE POSSIBLE ANGLES HAVE BEEN LOOKED INTO AND WE HAVE SELECTED WITH CARE AND WITH YOU THE PUNTER-READER IN MIND!!

JOIN US AGAIN FOR MORE!!
