Two scheduled inspections at the jumps meetings at Musselburgh and Thurles in Ireland but there are no problems with the Flat cards at Southwell, Kempton and Lingfield a But don’t despair if you’re a fan of the jumping game as the weights for the world’s greatest steeplechase – the Aintree Grand National were published yesterday and Paddy is all over it.
Irish-trained horses dominate the betting with the Willie Mullins pair of Prince De Beauchene and On His Own taking high rank in the market at 12s and 14/1 while the Ted Walsh-trained Seabass – who was third last year is also a 14/1 poke in a race where Paddy is paying 1/4 the odds the first 5 places.
