An interesting mare makes the cut for the each-way selection at Aintree

ZARKAREVA – 4:40 AINTREE (20/1 – Various)

Hailing from Henry De Bromhead’s yard, Zarkareva could produce a big performance in the Red Rum Handicap Chase at a decent each-way price at Aintree.

The mare has featured in several big field handicap chases this season and has placed in three of her six starts this campaign for her connections.

The handicapper hasn’t been the kindest in terms of her mark, but it looks workable and she should appreciate the better ground here.

She has talented jockey Rachael Blackmore in the saddle as well, who could continue her love affair with Aintree after striking in the Grand National last season.

At the price of 20/1, Zarkareva could well be in contention here at a nice price.
