Jockey Bookings May Be The Key

Papillon, with delighted jockey Ruby Walsh, wins the 2000 Martell Grand National, at Aintree racecourse, Liverpool. * 02/04/01 Papillon (left, green top), ridden by jockey Ruby Walsh, jumping the last fence on his way to win the 2000 Martell Grand National. Papillon will be able to defend his Martell Grand National crown after the Irish Department of Agriculture today permitted horses to travel to Britain for the three-day Aintree fixture.

Conspiracy theory time ahead of the two and a half mile handicap hurdle due off at 4.35pm when I will be backing Glen Cannel. Top weight Since Day One caught my eye after hitting a top three finish in his last five starts and in 10 of his 12 starts under rules – but Brian Hughes has been on board for nine of those, yet he deserts him for the selection this afternoon – very strange indeed.

Laura Morgan’s six-year-old is the joint youngest in this field aged six and won his maiden hurdle at Market Rasen before following up in a novice event at Ayr, with both wins on ground with plenty of give in it. Two other ruins saw a third in a Class Two at Musselburgh before he was pulled up on his handicap debut at Newbury, when he may have had enough for the season.

Back fresh this afternoon for his first start since last March, he runs off 3lb lower this afternoon and should give us a good run for our money with more expected of him this season.
