Aintree Racing Preview: 13th Apr

With the Grand National just around the corner, we actually have three great days of racing from the famous Liverpool course & it's a mini 'festival' that has a bit of everything for real race fans

And day one on Thursday has some crackers with 4 grade 1s including the reappearance of the superstar that is Constituon Hill & a great looking contest which sees Bravesmangame taking on A Plus Tard, Ahoy Senor & Shishkin!

I've taken a look at the races through the day & picked out a few of my best value bets for the day. And we start with the money back race on Skybet & the selection is Scriptwriter.

He was disappointing LTO at Kempton but had looked to be a progressive sort before that and can hopefully bounce back here. At 15/2 I think he's worth a cheeky punt with Harry Cobden taking over the reigns for this one

The Foxhunters Chase is always an interesting affair & with a tough field to call, I'm going to side with last years winner Latenightpass. Gina Andrews once again does the steering and after a similar prep to last years success, I'm hoping for another big run here

In the 4.40pm I think the Skeltons Third Time Lucki can land this after being a touch unlucky at Cheltenham. This should suit and whilst it can be difficult to follow up from the festival, I think he has a good chance here at a decent price

And in the bumper to close the day I have to go with the wily Willie Mullins but I'm actually going for the so called '2nd string' here with Williamstowndancer. She disappointed when fav last time at Navan but clearly has a bit of a potential still and you can never write off Mullins! At around 12/1 & with extra places on offer I think it's a good each way play

Good Luck whatever you are backing and don't forget you can follow me
