Free horse racing tip for the Grand National at Aintree on Saturday 8 April. Unfortunately our ante-post value selection for Saturday’s Grand National – Vics Canvas – has met with a setback and will have to miss the great race but with bet365’s NRNB proviso will can reinvest our money with a horse and jockey who have what it takes to prove victorious this weekend, the duo in question being The Young Master and Sam Waley-Cohen.
With six wins to his name over the famous Grand National fences no amateur rider of the current era has a better record at Aintree than Waley-Cohen who came agonisingly close to winning the world’s most famous steeplechase back in 2011 when his mount Oscar Time found only Ballabriggs too good in the marathon contest.
Ante-post tip for the Grand National
The jockey’s father Robert, bought a part share in the the Neil Mulholland-trained The Young Master with the intention of supplying his son with a realistic chance of landing this year’s race and at odds of 20-1 must have serious prospects of bringing the ambitious plan to fruition.
The son of Echo Of Light improved out of all recognition in 2014 winning on seven occasions ( one of those resulted in a technical disqualification ) before finding life tougher off a much higher handicap mark. However, that did not stop the horse from winning last season’s historic bet365 Gold Cup ( Whitbread ) at Sandown over a trip of 3m 5f.
The extra 5f should not pose a problem for the eight-year-old and a disappointing effort over the National fences in December’s Becher Chase should not be taken literally as the main aim was to give The Young Master experience of the unique venue. Connections are sure to have the horse primed to perfection come Saturday and the talented rider can become the first amateur to claim the race since Marcus Armytage back in 1990.
Grand National Betting Tip – 2 points each-way The Young Master 20-1 bet365 ( 5 places, NRNB, best odds guaranteed ).
