GRAND NATIONAL 2023Free Horse Racing TIps
5:15 Aintree – Grand National
CORACH RAMBLER 10/1 generally – 1 POINT E/W (6 places, 1/5 odds)
DELTA WORK 9/1 generally – 0.75 POINTS E/W (6 places, 1/5 odds) (NOW 9/1)
CORACH RAMBLER is just the perfect Grand National horse, he will stay forever, he jumps well, he travelled better than ever in the Ultima Handicap Chase and I wouldn’t even say he had a hard race at Cheltenham. Lucinda Russell knows what it takes to win this race after winning it with One For Arthur in 2017 and the same applies for Derek Fox.
Obviously we will need a bit of luck in running but these fences are not as hard as they used to be and horses just jump straight through them. Horses tend to unseat on the landing side rather than the fence itself.
I know you can’t be super confident in a Grand National given the nature of the race, but I am as confident as can be under the circumstances. CORACH RAMBLER will have just 10st 5lb on his back as top weight Any Second Now is certain to run and given the form this horse is in, what is going to stop him with 10st 5lb on his back. All he needs in my opinion is a clear round of jumping and CORACH RAMBLER is your 2023 Grand National winner. If he gets over the last fence within a few lengths of the leader, I have no doubt he will get home better than anything.
Come on the Rambler, this race is tailor made for you. E/W.
DELTA WORK finished 3rd in this race last year off a mark of 160. He is 1lb lower this time around on a mark of 159 and he comes into the race in the same form as last year, on the back of a win in the Cross Country Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. The difference this time is the fact that Any Second Now runs off a mark of 167, meaning DELTA WORK will have 11st 4lb on his back. Last year he had 11st 9lb on his back as the highest rated horse last year was Minella Times who was rated 161. I can’t tell you how much 5lb lighter on his back is going to help in the closing stages. He meets the 1st and 2nd from last year in Noble Yeats and Any Second Now in the race once again, but this time around he is nearly 1 1/2 stone better off at the weights with Noble Yeats and 9lb better off at the weights with Any Second Now. I am quietly confident he will reverse the form with those two horses and if Corach Rambler was not in the race, DELTA WORK would be my main bet.
DELTA WORK has it all although 159 will make it hard work but he is a very classy horse who stays and stays. He has a top class chance of going very close once again. E/W.
