Who To Follow On Day Three Of The Grand National Meeting

Horse To Follow - Super Six

The final event of the Grand festival is the Grade Two Standard Open National hunt Flat Race over 2m1f and Super Six for Nigel Twiston-Davies looks a big price at 8/1.

The four year old has been seen three times during his career, winning his first two starts in bumpers at Hereford and Chepstow, getting better with each run.

Those runs primed him for a crack at the Grade One Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham festival and he did well to finish fifth behind the likes if Sir Gerhard, Kilcruit, Elle Est Belle and Three Stripe Life who are all superb horses for the future.

On form he sets the standard.

Trainer To Follow - Henry De Bromhead

Henry De Bromhead has arguably been the trainer of the season so far during this jumps term and in the Saturday of the Grand National meeting we believe he has some big chances.

In the second race of the day it sees the Grade One Mersey Novices' Hurdle and Ballyadam looks to be the pick of the bunch on form and if handling the extra half a mile could go really well.

Another big chance on the day for the Irishman comes in the Grand National, where he has the third favourite Minella Times and he has been well backed over the last few weeks.

It could be written in the stars for this trainer to cap off a great season by landing the biggest race of them all.

Rachael Blackmore

If we put up Henry De Bromhead we have to also put up Rachael Blackmore as the jockey to follow on Saturday as she will be riding most of his horses.

She will be having her first sit on Ballyadam with Jack Kennedy being taken off the horse, which could see Blackmore get more out of him.

The female rider, is one of the best jockeys in the business and has had a remarkable season and it would be the cherry on top to see her win the Grand National.

She sits on 10/1 chance Minella Times for JP McManus and it looks as though he has been primed for this race all season.
