Who To Follow At Aintree On Saturday

Horse To Follow - Santini

Santini is said to be spot on for his return at in the feature Many Clouds Chase after Henderson pulled him out of the Betfair Chase a few weeks back and his rider also believes he has come on massively for his Newbury Gallop.

The staying star for the yard always comes on a fair bit for his seasonal debut, but we think he will be bang on it this term having had a successful race gallop at Newbury.

Although winning on debut last term at Kempton, he was much better next time out after undergoing a wind op which saw him race on trials day in the Cotswolds Chase and he put in a mighty performance to beat Bristol De Mai over what was nearly the Gold Cup trip.

He then headed to the festival for the Cheltenham feature and although rallying in the final stages, had to settle for a narrow second behind dual winner Al Boum Photo.

He will again be heading for the Gold Cup this term and the Many Clouds looks a great starting point for the gelding.

Trainer To Follow - Nicky Henderson

Nicky Henderson has some mart runners at both Sandown and Aintree on Saturday and we believe he is definitely he trainer to follow with his runners at the Grand National track.

He has been in fine form over the last 14 days running at a 23.26% strike rate having landed 10 winners from a possible 43 runners.

At Aintree on Saturday his big chances will be Santini in the Grade Two Many Clouds Chase and the popular Might Bite who will be looking to bounce back to from in the Grand Sefton Handicap Chase.

Jockey To Follow - Daryl Jacob

Daryl Jacob will be looking for a solid day in the saddle after making a decent start to the season having landed the Grade One Betfair Chase On Bristol De Mai.

He has a nice book of rides on Saturday for his retained owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede with horses like Goa Lil and Ballymoy looking to bounce back to form.

Jacob has not had many rides at Aintree recently but he returns the track with a fair record having 15 winners and 29 places at the Liverpool track in his career.
