Aintree Festival Day 1 Punts. (04/04/2019)

Manifesto Chase: GLEN FORSA (3/1) – KALASHNIKOV (4/1)

(Couldn’t split the two on this occasion so I’ve actually been a bit naughty and backed both, Glen Forsa looked a potential star before the Cheltenham fall and Kalashnikov will relish being back on a track like this and should come into his own.)

4Y0 Juvenile Hurdle: BAND OF OUTLAWS (7/4)

(Huge fan of this horse, deadly turn of foot as shown when winning the Fred Winter. Massive player.)

Betway Bowl: KEMBOY (11/4)

(My Gold Cup horse who came to trouble at the first, if putting that mishap behind him he’s a very solid player here on the back of his previous form. Big chance.)

Aintree Hurdle: BUVEUR D’AIR (1/1) – FAUGHEEN (7/1) (E/W)

(Buveur D’air should take this if none the worse from Chelteham spill as this isn’t a strong renewal. If turning up Faugheen looks very solid to make the frame on the back of his Stayers third.)

Foxhunters Chase: BURNING AMBITION (11/2) (E/W) – UCELLO CONTI (8/1) (E/W)

Red Rum Handicap: LADY BUTTONS (8/1) (E/W) – BRELAN D’AS (8/1) (E/W)
