    2019 Grand National

    Had a couple of free bets on my early likes for this. Go Conquer @ 66s and Missed Approach @ 50s.

    Never too early right ?!

    Love it GS !
    But I'd be looking across the Irish Sea, it's virtually impossible for UK horses to win any festival handicap the Irish show an interest in....

    Assuming he’s back in racing Un Temp Pout Tout is mybearly pick

    As I mentioned in the Cross Country thread I’m interested to see who else is out over the course next year and will probably factor them in to my GN thoughts aswell

    I'm also on early. Step Back was available at 60/1 with a Ladbrokes price boost. He was really impressive on Saturday and looks made to jump the national fences. The Bradstocks said that the National would be the long term target next season, with the Becher being a potential early season target. Rated 149 after Saturday, I think he has plenty of improvement in him.

    Presumably a Becher win would see him rated around 155 which would see him carry around 11st 7lb give or take.
    Not impossible but not ideal, perhaps they might use the Becher as an education rather than a target, will be interesting to follow him in that race....

    I am way off my game at the moment. I had a look at Step Back at the time and didn't end up backing it!

    Would love to be on at 60/1, well done FM.

    A hugely interesting horse because the step up looked to be a massive benefit for him. I was on the second and he was never getting close.

    I couldn't look at the Nash without knowing I would be on something carrying 11st or less. I know the race has changed, but the plot type thinking hasn't, I think the stat is now 18 from the last 20 winners falls within this weight stat, and, I think, the first 3 this year all carried less than 11st, big obstacle to overcome.
