|Grand National 2019 – Two Horses Worth Following
Wednesday 20th February 2019
The weights have been revealed for the 2019 running of the Grand National in which Bristol De Mai has been allotted top weight of 11 stone 10lbs. Many people are looking to discover the best tips for Grand National 2019, and there appears to be a number of horses who could be very interesting. Here we cover two horses worth keeping onside at this early stage.
Where better to start than with the defending champion Tiger Roll, who appears to have returned in the form of his life following his breath taking recent victory in the Boyne hurdle. He will of course be heading to defend his crown in the Cross Country at the Cheltenham festival, and is a banker to many as he looks to be a class above the rest of the field.
Tiger Roll has been allotted a mark of 11 stone 1lb, which means he will be running off 9lbs higher than last year. There is little doubt he rates a very strong contender as he looks to become the first horse since Red Rum back in the 1970s to defend his crown. Tiger Roll is now no bigger than 12/1 for the race, and could go off a lot shorter on the day.
The nine year old has yet to win a race over fences but came agonisingly close in last season’s Kim Muir at the Cheltenham festival, having travelled into the race as the best horse. He can be supported at a best priced 25/1 for the Grand National at present, which rates a solid e/w bet. Mall Dini has likely been aimed for this race for some time and is trained by a master in the shape of Pat Kelly, who of course has the current Cheltenham Gold Cup favourite, Presenting Percy. He could be a horse who could improve further up in trip and will be running off a nice racing weight. Mall Dini rates another leading contender worth keeping on side.
