Aintree 1.45 Tips – Day Two Aintree Festival

The first race on the second day is the Grade 3 Alder Hey & Aintree Handicap Hurdle, a Grade 3 race run over 2miles and 4 furlongs. It looks sure to be a cracking race but with a large field trying to find the winner could be tricky.

  • Our NAP selection for the Aintree 1.45 race is Langer Dan, he was unfortunately brought down in his last race at Cheltenham but if that has left no mark, the Dan Skelton trained horse has good form and has been lightly raced this year and should go close. Langer Dan only found the phenomenon “Galopin des champs” too good at Cheltenham last year where the front 2 pulled miles clear of the remainder of the field. Last of 6 when having a preparation run at Taunton for this year’s festival and unbelievably dropped 3lb by the handicapper. Sent off a warm order favourite in the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham 3 weeks ago only to be brought down after the 2nd hurdle. That ensures he arrives at Aintree fresh and even though the course doesn’t really suit hold up horses I think he will be too far ahead of the handicapper to be prevented from being triumphant.
  • Our dark horse selection for the Aintree 1.45 race is Peking Rose who hasn’t finished out of the first 3 all year, he looks sure to run a solid race.

Summary – Langer Dan to strike after disappointing at Cheltenham. Peking Rose not to be far away.

Aintree 2.20 Tips – Day Two Aintree Festival

The second race on the day is the Grade 1 Betway Top Novices’ Hurdle. This Grade 1 novice hurdle has produced some stars of the future and although Jonbon was put into his place at Cheltenham by Constitution Hill, he faces nothing as talented here and he should regain the winning thread.

  • Our NAP selection for the Aintree 2.20 race is therefore the Nicky Henderson trained Jonbon who could be a star of the future.
  • Our dark horse selection for the Aintree 2.20 race is El Fabiolo trained by Willie Mullins he is a solid alternative. This horse didn’t even break a sweat on his debut for Willie Mullins and although he’s taking a sharp rise in class he can do so in his stride. Willie reports the horse to be in fantastic shape. Jonbon will obviously start favourite but he can get really worked up before his races and also had a tough race at Cheltenham 3 weeks ago so El Fabiolo could exploit any weaknesses.

Summary – Jonbon to get back to winning ways, El Faviolo is in great hands and will give him a run for his money.

Aintree 2.55 Tips – Day Two Aintree Festival

The third race is the Mildmay Novices Chase, one of the most exciting races of the 3-day festival. It promises to be a brilliant clash between Bravemansgame – who skipped Cheltenham due to the ground – and the sound jumping and tough L’Homme Presse who has done nothing but improve all year.

  • Our NAP selection for the Aintree 2.55 race is L’Homme Presse. A wonderful tough horse, trained by Venetia Williams, he is seeking his 7th win in the row this season.
  • The race is only a 4 runner race and his main rival is Bravemansgame but we expect L’Homme Presse to gallop him into the ground. Bravemansgame is another horse who arrives here fresh after skipping Cheltenham because of the heavy ground. With the ground much quicker this time around Bravesmangame looks a solid option if L’Homme Presse could not back up her Cheltenham Festival victory.

Summary – a straight match and tough to call but we think L’Homme Presse could out battle Bravemansgame.

Aintree 3.30 Tips – Day Two Aintree Festival

The Aintree 15:30 race is another top-quality Grade 1 race – The Leiing Chase over 2miles and 4 furlongs. In truth, the race this year lacks an outright superstar but Fakir D’Oudairies has a touch of class and loves his racing. He looks like he has been laid out for the race.

  • Our NAP selection for the Aintree 3.30 race is therefore Fakir D’Oudairies. Only beaten twice this year and both defeats were against the classy Allaho. Won very well at Ascot last time out and Joseph O’Brien seems to have found the perfect opportunity to add another grade 1 success to his name with the race being the target for a long time.
  • Our dark horse selection for the Aintree 3.30 race is Hitman. Trained by Paul Nicholls he hasn’t won this season but is a solid type and likely to go close.

Summary – Fakir D’Oudarires is a confident selection to win the race again, it looks tougher than previously but he is n form and fresh.

Aintree 4.05 Tips – Day Two Aintree Festival

The Aintree 16:05 is the Topham Chase, which is raced over the Grand National fences over 2 miles and 5 furlongs. It looks set to be a full field of 30 runners. In light of that, the race is the most open race of the day with Skybet Betting online paying top 8 places for EW bet types.

  • Our NAP selection for the Aintree 4.05 race is Royal Rendezvous. An exceptionally tricky handicap and everybody looking for which horses may have something up their sleeve. With many of the horses looking pretty exposed I’m happy to go with the class horse in the race Royal Rendezvous to come out on top. Beaten only to the previous race selection Fakir D’oudaires who obviously franked that form at ascot. Willie Mullins has sidestepped a grade 1 assignment for him to take his chance on burdening the top weight in this handicap and for that reason, he will have my backing.
  • Our dark horse selection for the Aintree 4.05 race is Mac Tottie. Whilst his form this season is nothing to get excited about, he is a former winner over the Grand National Course which is a big asset.

Summary – a tough one to call but the nod goes to Royal Rendezvous.

Aintree 4.40 Tips – Day Two Aintree Festival

The sixth race of the card is the high-class Sefton Novices Hurdle. A Grade 1 3 mile novice hurdle over 3 miles, it can be a gruelling race and many of the horses who clashed at Cheltenham lock horns again. Banbridge who won there is sure to be popular.

  • Our NAP selection for the Aintree 4.40 race is Gelino Bello. Another Nicholls horse who avoided Cheltenham may be a fresher horse than those who had tough races there.
  • Our dark horse selection for the Aintree 4.40 race is Green Book who has been busy all year and always seems to run well and could outrun his odds.

Summary – many lock horns again after Cheltenham and we fancy Gelino to win, Green Book is a solid backup.

Aintree 5.15 Tips – Day Two Aintree Festival

The final race of the second day is the Park Palace Handicap hurdle. As with all handicaps, it looks a tough one to call.

  • Our NAP selection for the Aintree 5.15 race is Severance. Looks well handicapped to win this.
  • Our dark horse selection for the Aintree 5.15 race is Lively Citizen.

Summary – the last of Ladies Day can go to Severance at the expense of Lively Citizen.
