    Dusty Matt, apparently it’s never been beaten.




    seriously though, I’d put a £5 each way on Tiger Roll

    5.15 Aintree Ė Randox Health Grand National Handicap Chase (Grade 3)





    Historically one of the trickiest puzzles to solve in the racing calendar, the Grand National fills plenty of puntersí hearts with dread but there are a number of trends that we can use to narrow down the field.





    The first thing to consider is the weight carried by horses and whilst Many Clouds, Neptune Collonges and Donít Push It have all carried big weights to victory in recent seasons, the overall pattern suggests that those carrying lower weights have an advantage. 30 of the last 34 winners winners carried 11st or less and when we apply that to this yearís field, it puts a negative mark against all the runners from Anibale Fly down to Ballyoptic.





    Given the unique nature of the fences jumped in the Grand National, it should come as little surprise that horses with previous experience of them have fared well in recent years. 9 of the last 18 winners had run over the National fences before and just under half of this yearís field boast the same credentials including the likes of Anibale Fly, Tiger Roll and Pleasant Company.



    A slightly contradictory stat suggests that whilst experience of the fences is important, a previous run in the race itself is not so much of an advantage. In fact, ten of the last eleven winners were having their first start in the race, the only exception being Mon Mome. Nearly three-quarters of this yearís field are making their Grand National bows on Saturday including the likes of Lakeview Lad, Rathvinden and Joe Farrell.




    Apart from races over the Grand National fences, previous form at the meeting has also proved a useful guide. Seven of the last ten winners had run at the meeting previously (excluding races over the Grand National fences), with three (Mon Mome, Donít Push It and Auroras Encore) having been successful.






    Another thing which may seem obvious in a race of this nature which is often overlooked is stamina and that is backed up by the fact that only one winner since 1970 had not won a chase over at least three miles prior to winning here. The myth that 2m4f chasers win the Grand National is long gone so be sure to steer clear of those without proven stamina on their side this time around, namely A Toi Phil, Ultragold, Blow By Blow, Up For Review and Livelovelaugh.





    Good jumping is also a valuable asset in a Grand National contender as the fences present a unique test for the equine athlete. It is therefore no surprise that all but two of the last twenty two winners had fallen or unseated no more than twice during their career, prior to winning here. On the whole, this yearís field look to be sound jumpers but there are a few who fall foul of this stat, Go Conquer and Minella Rocco, so it may be best to steer clear of this trio.




    Race fitness can also play a crucial role in the outcome of a race and whilst it may seem logical to think it is best to side with a horse returning from a long break, the stats suggest otherwise. In the last 38 years, only three winners hadnít run in the last 50 days prior to lining up at Aintree not good news for the likes of Valtor, Rock The Kasbah and Step Back, who are all returning from lengthy absences on Saturday.




    It may seem trivial for some punters to consider breeding when it comes to National Hunt racing, especially when you consider that arguably the greatest Grand National winner Red Rum was bred to be a flat horse. However, recent renewals have showed us that those bred in Ireland hold the upper hand, having been responsible for 15 of the last 20 winners of the race. They are well-represented this time around with nearly two-thirds of the field but given their record is superior to that of their British and French rivals, it is worth bearing in mind when it comes to making a final selection.




    Shortlist



    Vintage Clouds




    Joe Farrell




    Ballyoptic





    Regal Encore





    Having just missed the cut twelve months ago, Vintage Clouds finally gets a chance to have a go at this race and the case for him looks strong. One of the strongest stayers in the field, Sue Smithís nine-year-old won well on his seasonal reappearance and following a below-par run in the Welsh National, he put the finishing touches to his preparation with a fine second in the Ultima at Cheltenham last month. That was his first run since having a wind op and if he can step forward again, he looks a leading contender.




    Last yearís Scottish Grand National looks a key piece of form for our shortlist because whilst Vintage Clouds was back in third, it was Joe Farrell and Ballyoptic who fought out the finish, with the former coming out on top by the narrowest of margins. Rebecca Curtisí ten-year-old managed to sneak in at the foot of the weights here and if he takes to the fences, he should be thereabouts.




    Nigel Twiston-Daviesí Ballyoptic has struggled for form so far this term and fell on his first run over the Grand National fences in the Becher in December. That is far from an ideal preparation, his form ties in closely with leading contenders Joe Farrell and Vintage Clouds and if he returns to form, he could outrun his sizeable odds.





    The final member of the shortlist is Regal Encore who is no stranger to the race, having finished eighth in 2017. Anthony Honeyballís eleven-year-old isnít the easiest to predict but he stepped forward from his return to action over hurdles to finished third in a valuable chase at Ascot in February. The handicapper has taken no chances with him but his experience could prove important in a field with so many debutants.
