Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th Personally I think WHAT A FREIND will end up being top weight, on 11-10 come the day, putting the weights up by 5lb... Suits me, I reckon i will be on the gamble of the race further down...Waiting for March 19th...second declaration stage.. Sorry only 73 gone forward as it stands...That will be down to around 55-60 on March 19th.:D

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th I'm struggling to find much value at the moment. I thought potentially Midnight Chase but he ran a stinker on Tuesdy, even allowing for the soft ground. Alfie Sherrin could be worth a bet. Stayed on well in the Kim Muir yesterday and was a staying on 3rd in the Irish National last year.

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th Official latest on Albertas Run and Frisco Depot; A decision has yet to be made over the future of three-time Cheltenham Festival winner Albertas Run but he will not be running in the John Smith's Grand National. There was talk among his connections after he was pulled up in the Ryanair Chase last week that he may have run his last race. The 12-year-old, twice a winner of the Ryanair and also the 2008 RSA Chase for trainer Jonjo O'Neill and owner Trevor Hemmings, was making his first start of the campaign. Hemmings' racing manager Mick Meagher said: "There's no point rushing into anything, but what I can tell you is that he has been taken out of the National." Another who will not be running in the Aintree showpiece is the Charlie Longsdon-trained Frisco Depot, who fell in the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup. "He's fine, there's nothing wrong with him, but he's not running in the National this year," said Longsdon. "He's not had a good preperation for a race like that but I hope he'll go there next year. I can't understand how he's fallen twice this year because he's a brilliant jumper at home. For some reason in a race he just has a habit of making a mistake."

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th Early thoughts on the Irish runners;

The Irish trained horses appear to be dominating the ante-post lists at the moment with five of the top six in the betting all intending to make the trip over for the contest, the 10/1 favourite with bookmakers

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th I would always worry about backing a hold up horse in that style of race, especially one that isnt the soundest of jumpers himself. Shame about Alfie Sherrin and Midnight Chase as I had a couple of quid on those two. I thought the latter would have had a very good chance with his running style and sound jumping. Im struggling to find an angle but I certainly wouldnt rule out Wyck Hill on genuinely soft ground.

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th annoyed pipe took The Package to Chelts last week, i felt it had a good chance at Aintree this year and now isn't running as i assume it didnt come out of the race well. Will stick to the trends for the race which have done well over the past few years.

I tried to use the stats for last year and they didnt do so well! However, I see yours for Cheltenham were different to the ones on ATR so I will definitely be having a look!

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th

Any chance you could post the trends up please Bowles? Got a few days off work this week so looking into the National to see if theres any value left
These were Bowles' main trends last year, just add the 2012 result on;

13/14- Won at least over 3m 13/14 - Won class 1 or 2 chase (8 at class 1) 13/14 - OR 135+ 13/14 - Aged 8-11 13/14 - 3-6 runs in season

14/14 - Ran within 48 days If you just put National trends in google you will come up with stacks of similar info, no secrets with the GN.

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th [h=1]Aintree bans firm ground for the Grand National[/h][h=2]Aintree has run its last fast-ground Grand National. Starting from this year’s race, on April 6, the course will be watered as a matter of routine to provide going that is never any quicker than 'good to soft’.[/h] Mr_frisk_2515545b.jpg Record breakers: the course record set by Mr Frisk (Marcus Armytage, left) in 1990 is now unlikely to be broken Photo: ALLSPORT By HOTSPUR (JA McGrath) 10:00PM GMT 20 Mar 2013 comments.gifComment In the most significant move yet to minimise the risk to horses and riders, the Aintree executive is effectively reshaping the race to fit modern requirements, at the same time trying to retain the character of jump racing’s ultimate challenge. There will never be a repeat of Mr Frisk’s 1990 triumph when, on ground officially termed 'firm’, the Kim Bailey-trained gelding set a record time of 8min 47.8sec. Lord Daresbury, the chairman of Aintree, said that a commissioned statistical report had supported the intuition that there was a direct link between injury to horses and the state of the ground. The quicker the ground, the faster the pace, which led to a greater risk of injury in the event of a fall. “We looked closely at all the statistics, and in discussion with trainers, we came more and more to the conclusion that ensuring ground that was always on the soft side of 'good’ was the right thing to do,” he said. Before Mr Frisk, the 'firm’ going winners over the previous five decades were Lucius (1978), Rag Trade (1976), Red Rum (1973) and Nicolaus Silver (1961). [h=2]Related Articles[/h]

Twelve of the 22 winners since Mr Frisk were successful on ground described as 'good’. In future, there will be no winners on that type of surface. Lord Daresbury was aware of possible criticism, particularly from owners and trainers of horses with a preference for fast ground. “There have been contrary individual voices from that direction,” he confirmed. “But when reality and logic starts sinking in, it should be different. Everybody is doing everything possible for the success of the Grand National, and I think most involved are taking more responsibility themselves for the race. There have been some critics who have said we are lowering the fences, but that is not the case.” While they have not cut the size of the jumps, officials have introduced a softer core to the fences, with a view to lowering the risk of injury to horses who might plough through them. The revelation regarding the future watering policy is the most significant piece of news regarding the future of the big race. Changes to the course, at Becher’s and elsewhere, the reduction in distance of the run to the first fence, and calls for fewer runners, all amount to cosmetic alterations. However, a policy to ensure that the going is always on the soft side is a positive step that should be applauded. In the long term, it will subtly change the profile of a would-be Grand National horse. However, it might also ensure the casualty rate is lowered and the future of the race guaranteed.

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th

Any chance you could post the trends up please Bowles? Got a few days off work this week so looking into the National to see if theres any value left
will take me a few days to go through the 57 runners, i have a 100pt selection policy with 10 key trends to work to. I then break the field down.
These were Bowles' main trends last year, just add the 2012 result on;

13/14- Won at least over 3m 13/14 - Won class 1 or 2 chase (8 at class 1) 13/14 - OR 135+ 13/14 - Aged 8-11 13/14 - 3-6 runs in season

14/14 - Ran within 48 days If you just put National trends in google you will come up with stacks of similar info, no secrets with the GN.

Last year we were pipped on the line, couldn't believe i had lost to Neptune who broke a few trends.

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th Three pretty strong trends that I have picked up from another website: 1. Had a chase win in last 15 months, or in last 6 chases (21/22) or (39/42). The three exceptions had form in previous Grand Nationals 2. RP Comments for chases over 26f feature phrases "staying on" kept on" or something to suggest horse was staying on at the end. I havent checked myself but apparently, this features in 33% of all winners races. 3. Has either won over 26f+ or placed over 28f+ This leaves us with 13 from the original list of 57.

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th 11 days to go. TONY McCOY will ride either Sunnyhillboy or Colbert Station in the John Smith's Grand National after he narrowed down owner JP McManus's six-strong squad of contenders to two. McCoy, who won his only National on the McManus-owned Don't Push It in 2010, now has to decide whether to side with last year's second Sunnyhillboy or the progressive Colbert Station.

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th I'm in that nasty situation where I'm a massive fan of On His Own (see 2012) but how can I justify backing him at 7s?! Impossible really for all I think he's near enough as bombproof as you can get around here (only missing ingredient for me is he hasn't completed over these fences before). Okay he's only won over 3m1f in the past but to the eye he stays all day and was running a stormer here last year. The way he moved through the field was impressive having not warmed to his task in the very early stages. An unexpected Graded victory over hurdles as a prep and represents Mullins and Walsh. I guess I'm going to have to look elsewhere for some value but he's definitely the most likely winner in my eyes. To say he was only 8 last year too. In hindsight should have taken 12s when I could but even that's a bit short for me in this race. I might just have a small bet on him if I can get 8/1 and have another in the field just so I'm not gutted if he wins!

Re: THE GRAND NATIONAL 2013 April 6th Been saying Join Together ever since he came 2nd to Hello Bud in the Becher where he came from absolute knowhere to kick in on the last few furlongs and was unlucky to be beaten by a neck by the 14 year old. Nicholls main hope for the National was hampered last time out also after Night in Milan fell and he never really recovered and eventually pulled up.

Yeah, i keep coming back to On his Own as well. ideal horse to back now,will go on any going.but as you say all the value has gone.you would think it can't get any smaller than 6/1 or 7/1 and on the day the market always changes dramatically, you can also get first 6 ew as well. i will leave it to the day of the race if i can get 9/1 which occasionally happens as anti post fav drift on the day i will get on,if it stays around 7/1 then i think i will leave it. I can't believe Across the Bay is 40/1 and had an ew first 5. also like Sunny hill boy as well but not even sure if it will line up so i will leave that one closer to the day as well.
