Grand National - Saturday, Aintree 17:15 live on Channel 4
The Grand National is rich in statistical history and trends and, if you were to apply some of the basic rules to this year's contest, RULE THE WORLD, being a classy, potentially well-treated Irish horse, fits the bill perfectly.
Arriving here a fresh horse having missed the Cheltenham Festival, he has plenty of back-class - including second in last year's Irish National - and hailing from a stable whose last three runners have won, Mouse Morris's charge makes plenty of appeal at a huge 50/1.
Of the rest, MANY CLOUDS has a clear chance of following up last year's success off just a 1lb higher mark. Oliver Sherwood's stable star won by a length and three-quarters from Saint Are 12 months ago and he has arguably had a better preparation this time around.
We recommend backing Many Clouds at a MASSIVE 50/1 (enhanced from 7/1) with Marathonbet and you can do that by clicking here!!!!!!!!!
GALLANT OSCAR comes into the picture if he can repeat his easy victory of a well-contested handicap at the Punchestown festival last season, while SAINT ARE, runner-up in this race last year, and THE DRUIDS NEPHEW, who was going well until five out in the same contest, are both shortlist material.
