Aintree Saturday Tips: Well-treated Olgrangewood worth a wager at 11/1​


Oldgrangewood had become dangerously well-treated and worth a wager at 11/1 in the Betway Handicap Chase at Aintree (4.20).​ ​

This Dan Skelton trained eight-year-old has won four of his 13 starts over the larger obstacles and also made the frame on two occasions.​ ​

His last success came at Newbury back in December 2013 where he beat Jameson by 1/2 a length off a mark of 145.

Prior to that, he had run really well over 2m 4f at this venue when third of 12 to Smad Place in the Grade 2 Old Roan Chase off an official rating of 147.​ ​

Oldgrangewood also ran well in this 12 months ago when fourth of 16 to Thomas Patrick off 146 and is now able to race off a mark of just 137.​ ​

He also didn’t run too badly last time out posted his best effort for some time at last month’s Cheltenham Festival when ninth of 24 to Beware The Bear in the Grade 3 Ultima Handicap Chase and if building on that looks a huge player from a handicapping.​ ​

All his best form has also come on flat tracks and the fact that he has run well here in the past if a big plus.​ ​

So taking everything into account, Oldgrangewood has more going for him that his double figure odds would suggest.​ ​

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Oldgrangewood (11/1 BetVictor, Paddy Power, William Hill – BOG)​
