Irish Grand National

When is it?

Monday, April 5.

Who's the favourite?

Latest Exhibition, Time To Get Up 10-1

Who's the top outsider?

Tiger Roll 14-1

Top tip?

If he runs, then how can you look past Tiger Roll?

The two-time Grand National winner and defending Aintree champion won't be running over the famed fences of the Merseyside track.

But there is a chance he could be at the Fairyhouse showpiece.

And there can be little doubt about the pint-sized hero's energy levels, given the way in which he blew away rivals in the Cross Country Chase en route to a fifth Festival win.

The Grand National

When is it?

Saturday, April 10

Who's the favourite?

Cloth Cap 4-1

Who's the top outsider?

Minella Times 16-1

Top tip?

Trying to pick the winner of the National is akin to trying to pick the winning lottery numbers.

But this year, Cloth Cap appears to hold all the cards owing to his light weight.

The nine-year-old already showed his jumping prowess in his Ladbrokes Trophy win in November and the Listed Premier Chase victory at Kelso earlier this month.

Owner Trevor Hemmings loves nothing more than winning the big one and all the stars look aligned for his main charge.

However, there is the question of jockeys.

And none are better than Rachael Blackmore at the moment.

The Queen of Cheltenham has seen odds plummet on potential ride Minella Times, who has gone from 25-1 to 16-1 as punters predict that is the horse she will ride.

However, for a bit of value, why not look at Potters Corner at 25-1?

The winner of last year's 'virtual' Grand National, the Christian Williams-trained runner has previous in the Welsh National and looks to have been saved just for this race.

Scottish Grand National

When is it?

Saturday, April 17

Who's the favourite?

Aye Right, Galvin 10-1

Who's the top outsider?

The Two Amigos 25-1

Top tip?

As with all these horses it is early days, but if he runs why not take a chance on Sir Alex Ferguson's Give Me A Copper?

The 11-year-old showed good closing power to go down by just half a length to Kim Bailey's Rocky's Treasure over 3m at Doncaster last December.

He was pulled up on his only run so far this year but looks to be targeted for a run in one of the big ones.
