With just hours to go before the Grand National 2010 Big Fella Thanks‘ position at the head of the Grand National Betting looks like it may be under threat as a continued gamble seems to be taking place on David Pipe’s young chaser, The Package.
2009 Grand National fourth State Of Play and Grand National 2008 runner-up King Johns Castle have also come in for solid support with punters obviously feeling that horses with experience of the Grand National Fences is the way to go.
2009 Becher Chase winner Vic Venturi is one horse who has been on the drift today presumably as a result of losing Grand National jockey Paddy Flood who broke a collar bone in a bad fall today in the Melling Chase from the sadly fatally injured Schindlers Hunt. Trainer Dessie Hughes has opted to replace Flood with Roger Loughran.
Good luck to all our readers and brilliant Grand National Guide blog contributors tomorrow – obviously we can’t all win but let’s hope most of us show a profit and that all the horses (and jockeys!) come back safe and sound.
Thanks a lot
