We were on FARCLAS at the Cheltenham Festival when he came home 2nd to The Shunter who ran well today at Grade 1 level. He came there and looked like he was going to go past The Shunter but just couldn’t get there.
FARCLAS is a horse who is all about good ground, something he is going to get here and although he is up in trip, I actually think he could improve for it.
He will be ridden by Jack Kennedy who for me along with Rachael Blackmore is the best in the whole industry.
FARCLAS comes into the race rated 148 and he is a horse who is progressing nicely. I am confident he is a better horse than his handicap mark of 148.
He came back this season from 522 days off the track and since coming back has been so consistent without winning this season. He was 5th of 17 in heavy ground on his first start of the season, ground he would have hated. He was then 3rd of 22 in the Paddy Power Chase over the Christmas period. He was then 4th of 22 at the Dublin Racing Festival in February before coming home 2nd at the Festival in the Paddy Power Plate.
FARCLAS believes it or not has so many comparisons to Tiger Roll.
1. They are both owned by Gigginstown Stud.
2. Both have won the Triumph Hurdle.
3. Both absolutely love spring ground and this time of year.
4. Both are very low jumpers and have the ability to brush through the top of fences and get away from them fast on the landing side.
The one question is going to be his stamina but I just think given he is right at the bottom of the handicap carrying just 10st 3lb, this race could be made for him.
He is still only a 7 year old who has still got big improvement to come.
The yard knows how to train a Grand National winner and I think this is a horse ahead of the handicapper.
ACAPELLA BOURGEOIS has all the attributes you need in a Grand National and is an absolutely huge price at 28/1. I am not sure why he is so big given Burrows Saint is 8/1 and our selection beat him comfortably last time out, giving him 6lb. He actually carries 1lb less in this race so is 13lb better off with Burrows Saint. I don’t see how that form is turned around given the huge weight advantage. In recent years this horse has had to carry big weights in handicaps and this is the first time in years he has carried less than 11st in a big handicap. He has form with Al Boum Photo in his career and although he didn’t trouble that horse, he still ran with credit. This is a horse who likes to go from the front and with Danny Mullins on board, he has the perfect jockey to do that. He is a jockey I have a lot of time for, particularly on front runners. A ride from the front I can point out which show how good his fractions are, is Flooring Porter in the Stayers Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, just magic. With 6 places on offer and the fact he stays all day long, I can see plenty of each way value.
POTTERS CORNER again is another perfect Grand National horse and has won the Midlands National and Welsh National in the past. I think that tells the story of just how perfect he is for this race. He was well fancied last season for this race before it was cancelled due to Covid and in my opinion he has been trained all season with this in mind. I am not at all bothered by his form over hurdles going into the race as Christian Williams has trained the horse for one race only. Looking through his form going into the Welsh National it was all over hurdles and he only run one race in the lead up to that. Jack Tudor rides and he is a jockey who gets on so well with the horse and he was aboard in the Welsh National. I think he is a huge price for a horse who will be primed to the minute and is only rated 4lb higher than his Welsh National win. The training facilities and methods, such as beach walks, that Christian Williams has on his doorstep, will mean this horse will be full of life and as happy as they come. I think that is the key to him and the patience they have had with the horse leading up to this race, could pay dividends. If he is near at the end of the race, no horse will get home better. E/W.
GIVE ME A COPPER is a huge price in my opinion especially on this good ground. He is a horse who was talked about as a Gold Cup horse a few years ago by Paul Nicholls. Obviously he didn’t reach those heights but I can’t help but think he is well treated on a mark of 147 with Harry Cobden riding off a tiny 10st 4lb. He is a big horse who could really take to these fences and this extreme distance should be within range.
The key to the horse is the ground, the quicker the better and this son of Presenting can have a say at a very big price.
