Grand National 2022

08 Apr

Sorry all but not enough time to do any lengthy posts on the National this year. Suffice to say I won’t be backing any of the higher weights over 11st 5lb as stats are heavily against them. That rules out some at the head of the betting market this year for me

Ground doesnt look likely to be too soft at time of writing. If the showers continue to hold off both Discorama and Dingo Dollar appeal as two bigger prices who have form in distance races like this and look overpriced.

If the rains do come it should favour others more. Eclair Surf in patricular could really benefit with such a stamina test but may get outpaced on good going. Santini also looks a nice price if there is soft in the going description (note he has beaten potential fav Delta Work both times they have met before and is better off at weights here as well). If Nick Schofield can get him into a nice rhythm over the early fences I can see him running a decebt race here.

Fortescue is also going the right way. Stamina not totally proven but he looks like he needs a trip. I can’t find his jockey having any previous experience over these fences which tempers enthusiam a little.

As always hope they all come back safe and well

Good luck to whatever you back
