13:45 Aintree – Cyrname (BEST ODDS 9/4 with Betfair)
This novice chase gets the Grand National festival at Aintree off the mark and it looks set to be a cracking race. This horse has won two of his last four races, including a supremely impressive victory in a Grade 2 race by some 11 lengths last time out. He’s proven at the trip and will be at peak fitness for this one, so I can’t quite figure out why he isn’t favourite. I’ll happily take a value price though!
