I think LAKE VIEW LAD will enjoy the conditions, he’s a real sound jumper and he’s a consistent horse. He put up a good performance last time out in the Ultima under top weight. He keeps progressing and could add a 4th Grand National win for owner Trevor Hemmings.
RATHVINDEN is thorough stayer and conditions should be in his favour. Willie Mullins’s horse comes in to this in good form with decent win in the Bobbyjo.
I think RAMSES DE TEILLEE is coming with age despite still only being seven. He’ll enjoy the test of stamina, and I thought it was a promising run in the Grand National Trial at Haydock.
Hopefully conditions have come right for FOLSOM BLUE, this generally sound jumper. He stays well and the Aintree fences may just spark some real enthusiasm from the right stable of Gordon Elliot’s.
