Jury Duty Among Those Shortened For Grand National
The Aintree Festival is almost upon us and there has been plenty of activity in the ante post markets with BoyleSports who are offering ‘Non-Runner Money Back’ and 6 places on the Aintree Grand National.
Tiger Roll remains unchanged in the market at 7/2 with money arriving for Rathvinden who is 10/1 from 12/1 for trainer Willie Mullins who won this race back in 2005 with Hedgehunter.
Gordon Elliott could exceed the record number of runners in the Grand National that was previously set my Martin Pipe with ten participants.
Elliott could saddle up to twelve runners is this historic race, but American Grand National winner Jury Duty is the one the punters fancy, after Tiger Roll. Elliott is on the hunt for his third success in this race…
