STAR PREVIEW Aintree Day One

first_imgBET NOW WITH STAR SPORTS 08000 521 321 [dropcap]B[/dropcap]eware the C-word is my Aintree watchword this week.Over the years Aintree has been a graveyard for horses that arrive on the back of wins and big runs at the Cheltenham Festival but then go on to flop on Merseyside.Their runs can defy logic but it is logical really:Relatively short gap between the two Festivals and recovery time limitedHorses often trained with primary focus of Cheltenham with Aintree as their Brucey bonusBounce factor – horses putting in a below par performance on the back of a big effort in the top gradeVarying ground – as this year, the ground is often quicker at AintreeDifferent tracks – both left-handed but that’s where the similarity ends. Aintree is a billiard table compared with CheltenhamWith that in mind I’m sticking with horses campaigned for Aintree and fresh for Aintree.The Brendan Powell trained mare Sweetlittlemystery is my day one NAP in the bumper at 5.15. She is unbeaten in two starts and came through nicely from a troubled run to win going away at Ascot last time out.A couple of points each way in the final race. By which time all the Cheltenham good things may, or may not, have won.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK SWEETLITTLEMYSTERY 4 points each way at 9/1 with Star SportsPROFIT/LOSS SINCE JAN 1 2017: -38.27 pointslast_img
