The team have taken a look through the card, naming their best bets across the contest.

Here are their selections for Friday’s racing at Aintree.

NAP: Armattiekan – 8:23 Aintree (2/1 – William Hill)

An interesting chaser under the guidance of Donald McCain, Armattiekan could strike in a small field in the two-mile handicap chase.

The eight-year-old put up a respectable performance over 2m4f last time out at Bangor, finishing a half length second to Costly Diamond.

The drop back down in trip here should suit and he is only currently 3lbs higher than his last winning mark for his connections.

The gelding’s price looks generous here and he should be competitive at this level.

NEXT BET: Danny Whizzbang – 7:13 Aintree (9/2 – William Hill)

Hailing from Milton Harris’ yard, Danny Whizzbang could put up a big performance in the 3m1f Handicap Chase for his connections.

The gelding finished a distant third at Stratford last time out, but that trip could have been a tad far for him and came up against a dominant rival on that occasion.

The nine-year-old is dropped back down in trip and he is only 4lbs above his last winning mark, with the quicker ground also in his favour here.

He will need to bounce back to form here but if the gelding is anywhere near back to his best, he should be competitive in this company at the decent price of 9/2.
