2015 Grand National Card: Conditional Jockeys Hurdle
The John Smith's Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle was added to the Grand National Card in 2009 so there is a limited sample for trends analysis.
Previous Race: All 4 winners ran at the Cheltenham Festival ( 3 in the County, 1 in the Supreme).
Form: Just 1 of the 4 winners was placed last time out.
Starting Price: The 4 winners were all returned at double figure odds and had a market position of 0 4 6 0.
Fate of the Favourite: A poor race for favourites with none placed. They have finished 0 8 0 7.
Trainer: Nicky Henderson trained the 1st and 3rd last year.
Age Trend: 6yos have won the last 2 but it is too early to read much into this.
