The sun is shining, skirts are getting higher, & a young man's thoughts turn to wine, women, & the 4.15 at Aintree tomorrow.
I reckon Grand Slam Hero is massive at 200.0 on BF & also at 30.0-35.0 to place.
Take a look at the form:
Sporting Life - Racing | Horse Profile
Let's just summarise his wins, in reverse order, and the number of horses he beat:
1/12 on Good in August
1/16 on Good in July
1/6 on Good/Fm in June
1/12 on Gd/Fm in May
1/10 on Gd in May
1/9 on Gd/Fm in May
1/9 on Gd/sft in July
1/8 on Gd/Fm in Aug
1/10 on Gd/Fm in Jul
This horse couldn't love the sun any more unless he wore shades.
What else though? Well:
Weight? 10st7lb, absolutely ideal.
Age? 10, ideal.
Won over 3m+? Yes, twice
Able to beat big fields? Yes.
Trainer? N Twiston-Davies, won the national twice
Jockey? Aiden Coleman, the man who could have ridden Mon Mome & chose not to. I'm viewing that as a positive, good story when he win's tomorrow.
PS - Anyone now thinking of betting this please remember that 200/1 tips win less often than one time in two hundred
