Who Do You Fancy For The 2019 National?
The racing after the greatest horse race in the world is bound to seem ordinary and uninspiring. The Grand National again proved to be a wonderful sporting occasion and event but now it’s jumps cards at Ffos Las, Newcastle and Plumpton and two fixtures in Ireland. There was more drama yesterday in nine minutes at Aintree than expected in all the races today. TIGER ROLL is 16/1 to win the 2019 Grand National. There is actually a relatively lucrative handicap chase at Ffos Las (3.45) and BALLYCROS can be backed at 7/1 with William Hill.
The four teams playing in the Premier League today know their fates and the teams could be going through the motions. The home team in Newcastle are safe and their opponents Arsenal cannot qualify for the Champions League. Manchester United will finish second or third and their opponents at Old Trafford, West Brom, will be relegated. In effect we have the epitome of end of season meaningless matches. These fixtures are perfect for low bookings counts but the bookmakers have caught on and the odds now offer no value. There could be two stalemates and the DRAW DOUBLE pays with 22/1 with Ladbrokes.
There are two big derbies elsewhere with Wolves at home to Birmingham in the Championship and Celtic playing Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park. Form students will be backing the favourites and the DOUBLE on Wolves and Celtic pays 7/4 with William Hill Meanwhile, Tiger Roll will be having the day off.
