The Aintree Festival is here, and while all eyes are on Saturday’s Grand National, there are plenty of opportunities to line our pockets beforehand. Our crack team of tipsters are hoping to carry on some Cheltenham form and have the best tips for Thursday’s action at Aintree.
Top jockey Ruby Walsh, racing pundit Matt Chapman, Cheltenham legend Turftalk Tom and our strange and mysterious trader on the first floor all go head-to-head and to-to-toe in the tipping stakes. The winner only gets pride, but hopefully you’ll be able to make a few quid off them.
Cheltenham flop Silviniaco Conti is getting plenty of support in the 2.50pm despite his Gold Cup performance, but other than that our tipsters are divided with Rock On Ruby and the fabulously named Parsnip Pete sneaking a couple of votes in there too.
