Bet Here

It’s Day 1 of the Grand National Festival at Aintree and BetVictor Ambassador Rachael Blackmore is here to give us the lowdown on her 3 rides ahead of all the action.

Gin On Lime

Aintree - 13:45

7/2

Gin On Lime is my first of three rides today in the Manifesto Novices’ Chase.

She’s had a break since her last run at Cheltenham in November. That turned out to be quite a dramatic race, but she came out of it well, and since then, Henry has had time to freshen her up.

I didn’t think she jumped as well as she can that day, but she’s been schooling well, and I believe she’ll like it at Aintree.

Zarkareva

Aintree - 16:40

Next up, I’m on Zarkareva in the Close Brothers Red Rum Handicap Chase.

She was a little disappointing the last day but seems in better form now.

Hopefully, she’ll be in the shake-up at the end.

Lady Excalibur

Aintree - 17:15

8/1

I’ve picked up a lovely ride for Alan Jones in the bumper on Lady Excalibur.

She’s a very nice Camelot mare who has already won around Aintree.

I should find out a bit more about her when I meet Alan, but I’m very much looking forward to riding her.
