An awesome day at Aintree

10th December 2017

I look forward to the Becher Chase, which is run over the Grand National fences at Aintree, each year. 

We were on the winner (Vieux Lion Rouge) in 2016 and we had the winner on side yesterday too - Blaklion.

Members were advised to back him at 5/1 to 4/1 earlier in the week and he ended up being backed into 7/4 on the day, winning by nine lengths and producing a performance which shot him to the fore of the betting for the Grand National.

We were also on the horse who had finished third behind Blaklion (second) in the Charlie Hall on his reappearance, Definitly Red, who won a Grade 2 chase on the Mildmay course by an easy seven lengths, despite drifting to 9/4.

We did have two losing selections at Sandown on the day (William H Bonney and Doing Fine) but completed a hat-trick with the Aintree picks when Gas Line Boy (advised at top price of 8/1) hacked up in the Grand Sefton.

He was almost brought down by a faller at one point but thankfully kept on his feet before powering his way to a comfortable victory over the National fences.

We boosted our return on Gas Line Boy by backing him in a double at 6/1 with Katiymann, who had won on the all-weather at Dundalk at 9/4. 

Gas Line Boy alone winning on the day was worth around 12-10 pts (top to bottom prices) alone, even before the wins from Definitly Red and Blaklion (who had been a strong 2 pt fancy and the biggest bet of the day) were factored in!

It continued a good start to the new jumps season, following on from recent NH successes from Sam Spinner, Old Guard, High Bridge, Mala Beach, Verdana Blue and Limited Reserve.
