Aintree Placepot Picks – Saturday 9th April

predictions logo accent sport preview



WINTER FOG has only been raised 1lb for his 4th placed finish in the Pertemps final last month and is weighted to reverse form with those who finished ahead of him that day. SERIOUS CHARGES remains unexposed, has won his last 3 starts and could be anything after his Uttoxeter win. BEAUPORT got a deserved win at Uttoxeter last time out, but he is so consistent and looks sure to run his race again. 


ELLE EST BELLE has been saved for this race and looks to have a great chance with her mares’ allowance, especially after the form of her Sidney Banks win at Huntingdon has been so well advertised. WALKING ON AIR is completely unexposed and after missing Cheltenham, he looks to have a favourites chance. COLONEL MUSTARD has been consistent all season and looks worth a try at this trip.


EDWARDSTONE has dominated this division this season and looks almost impossible to oppose after his Arkle win.


THYME HILL won this last season and looks well suited by the conditions after he chased home FLOORING PORTER in the Stayers hurdle.


KILLER KANE has won his last 2 starts and looks to be on a steep upward curve. SHAN BLUE was out of his depth in the Ryanair but should still have a good chance on a mark of 148. COMMODORE bolted up at Cheltenham in December and must be involved in the finish if he arrives in the same form.


DELTA WORK won the Cross-Country at Cheltenham last time and if he is in the same form, he should be involved in the finish. BURROWS SAINT was 4th last season and should go well again on the same mark. ECALIR SURF looks very well treated after he chased home WIN MY WINGS in the Eider and he is effectively 4lbs well in here. CLOTH CAP was a beaten favourite last year, but there were excuses for that, and his 3rd placed finish at Doncaster was a sign that he was returning to form.
