Three Grand National Hopefuls That Will Love Quick Ground

Cloth Cap 7/2

We start off with the most obvious runner out of the 40, with the favourite Cloth Cap getting shorter and shorter by the day and one of the reasons is that he loves good ground and with the sun shining, it looks more and more likely thats what the ground will be come the off of the National.

Cloth Cap has had a superb season to date, finishing third on seasonal debut behind King George VI Chase winner Frodon at Cheltenham and then since going on to land back to back races.

After his run at Cheltenham, he was set up perfectly for the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury and ran out an emphatic 10 length winner of the race.

Jonjo O'Neill has sent him out one once more since and it saw him win the Listed Premier Chase at Kelso, seeing off smart rivals in Two For Gold and Aso.

Good ground or any type of good in the going description is crucial to this horse, with all three of his runs this term coming in those conditions and he has revelled in it.

Before that he has ran on good ground twice more at Stratford and Catterick and ran out an easy winner of both events, and he also has a superb third in the 2019 Scottish Grand National on good ground.

The quicker the better for this horse, that can not perform to his optimum on soft, but certainly is a force to be reckoned with on good.

Burrows Saint 10/1

Secondly, the 2019 Irish Grand National winner Burrows Saint is a huge lover of good ground and although he has ran well on soft in the past, his performances on anything with good in the description are a class above.

What is so special about this horse on Saturday is that this season, all his runs have been preparing him for the Grand National and having ran respectably on heavy ground on three occasions, he is superbly handicapped moving back on to better conditions.

Burrows Saint during his career to date has only ran three times on ground that has good in the going description and on every occasion he has gone on to win.

One of those wins was the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse where the going was good to yielding and off the back of what he has done this season in testing ground, he looks a serious player on a sounder surface.

Proven Stayer.

OK Corral 50/1

Finally, at a much bigger price than the previous two runners we have discussed, OK Corral for Nicky Henderson and JP McManus could have a big outside chance with the ground drying out.

The 11 year old veteran has been waiting all season for quicker conditions as it is where he thrives, racing twice in his career on ground described as good and winning both times.

With that he has also ran on ground that was good to soft and he won one of those events very nicely at Doncaster over three miles.

Although a veteran, he has only raced 14 times during his career, so don't let his age put you off.

This season he has been seen once in the Ultima Handicap where the race was used to just give him a spin for fitness, with the Grand National the long term plan.
