I have two fancies at Aintree. The Betfred chase (2.15) has attracted a small but select field. Don Poli could have a few pounds in hand of his rivals and the ground should suit him. At a bigger price Fort Worth (2.45) should go well after an encouraging second at Cheltenham last month.
12.20 The trip and heavy ground could play to the strengths of Ballywilliam, a bumper winner at this track.
1.55 Bristol de Mai impressed when winning last time out and looks to have scope for further improvement.
3.35 Carole’s Destrier has been dropped 3 lbs after finishing 5th in the Badger Ales Chase and should close.
