The first horse we think could run a big race in the 2022 Grand National is the Ciaran Murphy trained Enjoy D'Allen, who like last year's winning horse Minella Times, was bought by JP McManus before heading for the great race.
The eight year old has the perfect profile for the race and looks to have primed for a big run, being mixed over other hurdles and fences this season, trying to keep his chase mark as low as possible.
A very consistent horse over the last few years Winning in January 2021 off a mark of 119 and has since progressed to last race over fences off 145.
Already proven over marathon trips when third in last year's Irish Grand National, this term he has been seen three times, all of his races in big fields.
Making his debut this term, he was seventh of 19 in a 2m4f handicap hurdle which was used as a prep run ahead of the Paddy Power Chase over Christmas when third of 28.
Enjoy D'Allen was last seen back over hurdles when fifth of 28 at the Dublin Racing Festival in a three mile handicap hurdle, that is perfect prep run ahead of the Grand National and being near the foot of the weights for the Grand National is perfect.
Big player at a current double figure price.
