Enjoyable day at Aintree

I had an enjoyable day at Aintree yesterday thanks to the hospitality of owner Alan Halsall and family.  An excellent afternoon of racing, with some impressive performances including Might Bite’s impressive jumping display.

Congratulations to Guy Disney on an excellent clear round in the Foxhunters and once again the Aintree Festival goes from strength to strength.

I attended in the Goffs sale after racing and prices were as strong as ever for some potential National Hunt stars.  Unfortunately came away empty handed but look forward to attending the sales at Cheltenham next Thursday, in the hope of adding to the team.

Good luck with your Grand National bets.  With the ground heavy, looking for an outsider for some value.

Perhaps backing a lady jockey to be the first winner of an Aintree Grand National is the most sporting bet.
