ESTRUVAL FLAG 2ND
Jockey: Miss Lucy Turner
Not a fan. Decent form at 2m4f and did well in Class 1 last season. Needs to shed weight all around and longer ride is a problem.
Jockey: Brendan Powell
ROOF up. Smashing second in this 12 months ago from 5lbs down. Remains as his fifth Grand National Shows and warmed up over hurdles 19 days ago. Directly on the hunt.
THREE UNDERTRUFIVE 4
Jockey: Adrian Heskin
UNDER command. Class 2 winner and fit from a hurdle race at Wetherby. Can do better so his large weight isn’t an issue and cheek pieces can help. Huge chance for Paul Nicholls.
VIOLATED TRANSLATION 1
Jockey: Freddie Gingell
LOST his way. Class 1 winner at best but missed more than hit. Down weights, but you can’t count on them.
Jockey: JJ Slevin
BUSSEL there. Before a big handicap run at Punchestown, he finished a comfortable second at the Golden Miller last season. Returned with a lucky win at Listowel where he stayed 3m. Needs more of 7lbs higher but not from that.
potter man 1
Jockey: Tom Cannon
pot and stallion. His form seems to be on the slide and he was beaten wide out in the Badger Beer last time out.
