Before looking at today’s racing, just a brief word regarding the Aintree Special membership.
From just £20 (£22.50 to include bets by text), you will get my work from tomorrow right through to the Sunday after the Grand National.
Highlights from a very profitable Aintree last year were:
Rajdhani Express WON 10/1
Saphir Du Rheu WON 7/4
Whisper WON 7.6
All were straight win bets and as you can see, we cater for the traditional and exchange backers.

Newbury start a good two day meeting and there are two races I want to touch on this afternoon.
In the 3.00, I was impressed by Roycano’s performance when winning at Fakenham last time out. This was the 6 y.o.’s first victory in six starts since his hurdling debut in 2013. Whether he can progress and defy the weight rise remains to be seen. The books go 9/4 favourite, I am 3/1 on my tissue.
In the following race at 3.35, bottom weighed Potter’s Cross had every chance when falling five out on latest start. Of his rivals, I see Viva Steve as the main danger. I rate both as 3/1 chances.
Back tomorrow morning.
