Matt Chapman Exclusive: Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh to reach fever pitch with another winner on Day 2 of Aintree

Just 24 hours to go until the big one, the Crabbie's Grand National of 2015

But there are winners to find on Day Two at Aintree first, and I am on the case. You hear me Paddy?

Let’s have a look at the terrestrial races, and start with the Grade 2 Novices’ Hurdle at 2.15pm. I’m all over Glingerburn, who is fast improving and has a high rating. He stays strong and has class. Hard to beat.

The Grade 1 Mildmay Novices’ Chase is at 2.50pm, and if the Paul Nicholls-trained Saphire de Rheu gets his jumping together he’s definitely the one to beat after finishing second to Cole Harden in the Stayers’ Hurdle. This is not an easy track for novices, but he has always looked a proper chasing type.

At 3.25pm it’s the Melling Chase over 2m4f, and the one to be on here is dual Festival hero Champagne Fever for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh. This is his perfect trip, and he’s fresh having missed Cheltenham with a small setback when another horse attacked him! He’s high class and I love him.

It’s the Topham over the big fences at 4.05pm, and as usual this is a right old cavalry charge. Maybe have a few quid on Sew On Target eachway for Colin Tizzard. This horse travels well on the front end so may keep out of trouble, and on a going day has the ability to have every chance. Good luck!

Finally I’m having a look at the Grade 1 Sefton Novices’ Hurdle at 4.40pm, and Nicky Henderson‘s Vyta Du Roc looks sure to relish a step up in distance after finishing fourth behind Windsor Park at Cheltenham. He made a terrible mistake at the last that day and would have been much closer but for that.

So here we go. Day 2. Bring it on. Yeeehaaa!
