Aintree Saturday Preview - 08/12/2018


Cause Toujours

Only six runners go to post in the Betway Heed Your Hunch Novices Hurdle. Consistent six-year-old CAUSE TOUJOURS looks the one to be with.

The Ian Williams trained runner is a previous course and distance winner who finished second in Listed company last time out.

The horse regularly hits the frame and we see no reason why he can’t get his head in front at this level and follow up on his two wins in the summer.



Ten go to post in the Betway Handicap Chase. This Class 3 looks at the mercy of BALLYHILL if she can repeat her good second at Bangor last time out.

The horse has operated in graded company and won a Grade 3 in January. This race is extremely winnable for a horse of this class.



MAHLERVOUS can win the Merseyrail Handicap Hurdle for Warren Greatrex and Sean Bowen. The horses first run of the season was a pleasing second at this level last month.

Her form this time last year gives her every chance and she is still relatively unexposed.


Blaklion & Missed Approach

The Classy BLAKLION can take the Grade 3 Becher Handicap Chase. He is the rightful favourite and if he is fully tuned up should take all the beating.

He won this race by nine lengths last year and is a previous Grade 1 winner. His last two runs have seen him fail to complete. If he can complete tomorrow he should win.

Our each-way selection for the race is MISSED APPROACH. The eight-year-old has not been seen since April but his performances this time last year would give him a major chance of hitting the frame.


Definitely Red

The Betway Many Clouds Chase looks somewhat of a penalty kick for DEFINITLY RED.

The Brian Ellison trained runner won this race by seven lengths last year.

His return run at the start of November was extremely pleasing and he can confirm his credentials for next year’s Gold Cup with a good run here.


Smiling Eliza

SMILING ELIZA looks to have strong credentials in the Betway Fillies Juvenile Hurdle.

The Irish-raider trained by Gordon Elliott has some of the strongest form in the race and whilst the ground remains a concern she looks to have a major chance.

She hasn’t finished outside of the first two in her last four outings and has a good opportunity on her British debut.


Voix D’Eau

The final race of a good card at Aintree is the Betway Grand Sefton Handicap Chase.

We are taking a chance on one of the longshots in the shape of VOIX D’EAU.

The eight-year-old has strong form in the book and any return to form would see him involved. A former graded company winner, if he takes to the testing ground he is majorly over-priced.
