Welsh Grand NationalIt's National Day, Welsh National that is.

Three miles, five furlongs and 110 yards of stamina sapping mud and big fences.

Big prices are available on all selections with the favourite Giles Cross currently a 13/2 shot.

So our strategy should be each way bets with a bookmaker paying 5 places.

Bet 365 are paying 1/4 the odds for the 1st 5 and they offer best odds guaranteed. (Take a price and if SP is bigger you will get settled at SP)

So that's where we are betting, the what we bet takes a little more thought.

At these prices and place terms we can afford to bet more than one horse and our shortlist is…

Le Beau Bai   9/1 “Finished third in this race in 2009 and expected to be thereabouts again this year, won at the course earlier this month in testing conditions.

Any Currency  12/1 “Conditions today are ideal for Any Currency, made a solid return at Sandown earlier this month after a long break.”

As Der Fer 12/1  “Easy 3 mile winner in the mud in November, if he has the stamina for this extra 5 furlongs then he should go close”

We will likely have a little each way play on all of these, but if you prefer one horse per race then our selection is…

  1. Great tipping, I myself had a small wager on le beau bai, should have been favourite, as a real mud lover and suited to these conditions, also backed him in a double but alas with a loser, always looking for a big win for a small stake. still well up since following the system of following certain trainers in heavy going, many thanks for that one.
