Aintree Postcast: Day One Tipping | Betway Bowl Chase | Aintree Hurdle | Foxhunters
Bruce Millington, Keith Melrose, David Jennings and Bet365's Frank Hickey with best bets from Day One of the Grand National Festival 2019.
On the show:
– Bruce is joined in the studio by new Racing Post betting editor Keith Melrose who along with Frank and DJ select their best bets from the opening day of the Aintree Festival.
– There are four Grade 1 races to look forward to, starting with the youngsters in the Devenish Manifesto Novices' Chase – can Kalashnikov and Glen Forsa make amends for their falls in the Arkle?
– Pentland Hills was the shock winner of the Triumph Hurdle and is short priced for the Juvenile Hurdle so the team are sweet on a few Irish raiders at bigger prices.
– We also look at Clan Des Obeaux's chances in the Bowl, Buveur D'Air in the Aintree Hurdle and we preview the first race over National fences with the Randox Health Foxhunters' Open Hunters' Chase.
