ArticleImage

Get the Timeform runner-by-runner guide for the 2019 Grand National Trial at Haydock, plus our expert analyst best bet.

 

 

1 -  YALA ENKI

Useful-looking gelding: winning hurdler: very smart handicap chaser: won at Bangor (by nose from Sir Mangan) in November: 12/1, better than ever when 5¼ lengths third of 20 to Elegant Escape in Welsh Grand National at Chepstow last time, never far away and jumping well: stays 29f: acts on heavy going: tried in cheekpieces: front runner/races prominently: tends to sweat.

 

 

2 -  BALLYOPTIC

Well-made gelding: smart hurdler: smart chaser: won novice at Exeter and Towton Novices' Chase at Wetherby (by 2¾ lengths from Vintage Clouds) in 2017/18: best effort when nose second of 29 to Joe Farrell in Scottish Grand National at Ayr on final start of season: 20/1, probably still needed run when 26½ lengths sixth of 20 to Elegant Escape in Welsh Grand National at Chepstow last time: stays 4m: acts on heavy going: has worn tongue tie, including latest start.

 

3 -  ROYAL VACATION

Useful-looking gelding: winning hurdler: smart chaser: off 6 weeks, 7/1, at least as good as ever when won 7-runner minor event at Taunton last time by 6 lengths from The Last Samuri, produced to lead before last: stays 3½m: acts on heavy going: usually wears headgear: has worn tongue tie.

 

 

4 -  WAKANDA

Sturdy gelding: winning hurdler: smart handicap chaser: won Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster (by head from Warriors Tale) in 2017/18: 6/1, as good as ever when also won 11-runner Peter Marsh Chase at Haydock last time by 1¾ lengths from Robinsfirth, staying on to lead run-in and driven out: stays 3¼m: acts on good to firm and heavy going: tough and genuine.

 

 

5 -  RAMSES DE TEILLEE

Leggy gelding: has had breathing operation: maiden hurdler: smart chaser: won handicap at Chepstow (by 2½ lengths from Prime Venture) in December: 10/1, shaped well when 1¼ lengths second of 20 to Elegant Escape in Welsh Grand National at same course last time, doing well to get so close after bad mistake 4 out: stays 29f: acts well on heavy going: wears tongue tie: usually travels strongly.

 

6 -  ROBINSFIRTH

Rangy gelding: winning hurdler: smart chaser: won Grade 3 handicap at Cheltenham (by 2 lengths from Shanroe Santos) in 2017/18: off 13 months, 7/1, good 1¾ lengths second of 11 to Wakanda in Peter Marsh Chase at Haydock last time: stays 3¼m: acts on heavy going: in tongue tie last 3 starts: strong traveller.

 

7 -  VIEUX LION ROUGE

Lengthy gelding: winning hurdler: smart handicap chaser: best recent effort when 4½ lengths second of 18 to Walk In The Mill in Becher Chase at Aintree on return: possibly found race coming too soon when pulled up in Welsh Grand National last time, whilst almost certainly doing too much too soon: stays 3½m: acts on heavy going: wears headgear: has worn tongue tie, including last 2 starts.

 

 

8 -  RED INFANTRY

Stocky gelding: fairly useful handicap hurdler: useful chaser: won handicap at Haydock (by 2¾ lengths from Bishops Road) in November: 7/1, good 6 lengths fifth of 11 to Wakanda in Peter Marsh Chase there last time, headed approaching 2 out: stays 29f: acts on heavy going: wears headgear: often leads.

 

9 -  THE TWO AMIGOS

Stocky gelding: fair form over hurdles: useful form over fences: won novice handicap at Newton Abbot in October and handicap at Exeter (by 3¾ lengths from Garrane) in December: 11/8, followed up in 8-runner handicap at Plumpton last time by 2¼ lengths from Calin du Brizais, again looking very straightforward: left David Pipe after final (2017/18) start: stays 31f: acts on heavy going: has worn tongue tie: usually leads, strong traveller and sound jumper: may do better still over fences.

 

 

10 -  BALLYARTHUR

Tall gelding: Irish point winner: winning hurdler: useful handicap chaser: 16/1, good 4¼ lengths fourth of 11 to Wakanda in Peter Marsh Chase at Haydock last time, holding slight advantage when untidy last: stays 3¼m: acts on heavy going: usually tongue tied.

 

11 - IMPULSIVE STAR

Well-made gelding: won maiden on point debut: winning hurdler: useful form over fences: 8/1, improved when won 12-runner Classic Chase at Warwick last time by 3¼ lengths from Calett Mad, regaining lead run in and staying on well: stays 4m: acts on heavy going: sometimes in cheekpieces: front runner/races prominently: one to treat with caution.

 

 

12 -  CAROLE'S DESTRIER

Well-made gelding: winning hurdler: useful handicap chaser: won at Newbury (by ¾ length from Ballydine) in December: 12/1, creditable 8¾ lengths fourth of 12 to Impulsive Star in Classic Chase at Warwick last time: stays 29f: acts on heavy going: often wears cheekpieces.

 

 

13 -  BISHOPS ROAD

Compact gelding: winning hurdler: useful handicap chaser: best recent effort when 2¾ lengths second of 8 to Red Infantry at Haydock last time, despite making chance-ending mistake last: again jumped poorly when pulled up last time: stays 3½m: acts on heavy going: wears headgear/tongue tie: often races prominently.

 

14 -  AH LITTLELUCK

Compact gelding: useful handicap hurdler: won at Fairyhouse (by 5½ lengths from Miles To Memphis) in 2017/18: fair form over fences: off 4 months, 7/2, won 7-runner maiden at Navan last time by 9½ lengths from Frankly All Talk, going best when left in front 2 out: stays 25f: acts on good to firm and heavy going: wears tongue tie.

 

15 -  POBBLES BAY

Good-topped gelding: fairly useful hurdler: off 7 months, strong 7/2, probably better for run when 11 lengths third of 7 to Buckhorn Timothy in handicap at Ffos Las last time, finding less than looked likely: useful chaser: shaped well when failing to stay in Welsh National last season: stays 3¼m: raced only on soft/heavy going: often races in rear.

 

16 -  CHEF D'OEUVRE

Useful-looking gelding: winning hurdler: fairly useful handicap chaser: 7/1, won 10-runner event at Haydock last time by 2¾ lengths from Back To The Thatch, leading when not fluent last and keeping on well: left Warren Greatrex after final (2017/18) start: stays 27f: acts on heavy going: has worn headgear: usually leads: has shown signs of temperament but doing little wrong for current yard.

 

 

Analyst Verdict:

RAMSES DE TEILLEE acquitted himself really well faced with a stiffer stamina test in the Welsh National, recovering from a jolting error to finish a fine second to Elegant Escape. This has been the likely target since and he makes plenty of appeal. In what looks a strong renewal there are plenty of dangers, however, with Robinsfirth, Chef d'oeuvre and Impulsive Star particularly respected.
