Big Win For Big Shot!

Aintree’s Grand National fixture certainly served up a treat for racing fans with three days of excellent action despite the ground remaining extremely testing owing to the persistent rain. It was a good week for the stable too, with three winners on the week, including the success of Mr Big Shot (pictured above) in the first race at Aintree on National day.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Newmarket, Ripon and Newcastle, supported by a jumps fixture from Cheltenham.  David has one runner today as Mechelen contests the 2m1f mares' bumper at 5.35pm.  It looks like a decent contest with a 'bumper' field of 20 runners, so it is very competitive.  Mechelen produced a sound debut effort when runner-up at Taunton on heavy ground on her only start to date.  There are plenty in there with good form so she looks to have place claims at odds of around 20/1.  Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.  Tom also has an outside ride on the favourite earlier on the card, although at 6/1 I'm not sure I would want to be piling on...sorry Tom!
