Saturday’s big race at Ayr see’s Heathfield nose ahead of yesterday’s favourite Measureofmydreams. Heathfield is currently 9/1 with Ladbrokes, trained by AJ Martin and hotly tipped to go all the way today but with 30 runners today’s race has an open field and anything could happen.
Measureofmydreams is Willie Mullins trained and coming off the back of a 3rd place at Cheltenham in a field of 20, strongly fancied by the punters today, starting at a healthy 12/1 today definitely worth a look. Also coming in off the back of Cheltenham and in the top of the chase is Cause of Causes, trained by Gordon Elliot; this Irish horse is in fantastic form, rested since Cheltenham but raring to go.
Other horses to keep an eye out for today are Vicente, Paul Nicholls trained, he’s challenging for the Top British Trainers Championships, Seeyouatmidnight trained by A Thompson, Vyta Du Roc by N Henderson and Royale Knight trained by DR R Newland.
This is the National though and as with last week’s Aintree National with all these runners anything can happen, the going is good, good to soft.
