DEISE ABA – 5:15 AINTREE – THE GRAND NATIONAL (100/1 – Ladbrokes)
After just sneaking in the final 40 runners, Deise Aba will take his chance in the Grand National on Saturday for Philip Hobbs.
The gelding has put up a respectable campaign for his connections, placing in three of his four starts this season including a second-place finish in both a 3m½f Handicap Hurdle at Aintree and the London National at Sandown.
It’s clear the gelding holds some capabilities over the longer distance and while he is 8lbs above his last winning mark, he has put in some respectable efforts in recent months.
It will be his first time tackling the National fences, which could benefit him as it seems more recent winners of the races were making their maiden start over the famous fences.
His price of 100/1 currently looks major each-way value in this contest, if he is at his best.
