Grand National Bets

It is so hard getting back into horse racing after being out of it for so long. I had planned to write a big preview of the Grand National with of course links to Grand National free bets.

Took me ages to write the following and I've done less than one fifth of the field and the winner is not even there! More tomorrow I think. The figure after the horse is it's chance in poker terms:)

Cloudy Lane

Has been punished by the handicapper for winning the Peter Marsh at Haydock earlier this year. Has proved he is capable around this course (6th last season) but will struggle off this weight and would need to be huge price even to consider him an each-way prospect. J10o

Chelsea Harbour

Another who finished the course last season but another who has been clobbered by the handicapper. No reason to see him improving on his 10th place in 2008 and long price reflects his huge price 95hh

Snowy Morning

Third last season and had been quietly backed that day having been given a decent weight based on his proven ability. Has raced with enthusiasm this season but is another looks weighted out of it and better each way value can be found elsewhere. 76o

Knowhere

Generally consistent, the 11-year-old has been lightly raced this season and despite failing to sparkle last time out, this gelding holds every chance based on his form from a great performance at Cheltenham in January 2008 as well as his effort at this course in October, albeit over a much shorter trip. 1010

Comply or Die

Has been brought back quietly after his fine victory in this race last year and put in a good effort on his latest appearance at Cheltenham. Always hard for a horse to win this race twice and with the extra weight burden here he may even struggle to make the places. a10o

Ollie Magern

Another who looks badly handicapped. Fairly consistent though and represents good each-way claims if putting his best foot forward. Chance will be compromised by any further rain. J10o
