Gold Cup Winner Nico De Boinville Set For Step Back Ride In The Aintree Grand National

Nico De Bonville Will Ride Step Back In The Grand National
Nico De Bonville Will Ride Step Back In The Grand National

We are just over a week away from the Aintree Grand National 2019 and plans are being finalised for some of the leading contenders in the betting.

Cheltenham Gold Cup winning jockey Nico De Boinville is set to ride Step Back in the big race for trainer Mark Bradstock.

The 9-year-old hacked up in the Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown last season and has been aimed at Aintree ever since by the former trainers of Coneygree and Carruthers. The Bradstock's have a great record with staying handicap chasers and there is a growing momentum behind the chances of Step Back.

The horse ran a solid race when last seen in the Classic Chase with a 6th place finish at Warwick putting the horse spot on and news has also emerged that he has schooled well over the National fences under De Boinville.

One of the top jockeys in the sport, De Boinville rode Coneygree to a famous victory in the Cheltenham Gold Cup when the horse was a novice and he will be hoping that the same connections can follow up in the world's greatest steeple chase on April 6th.

Step Back is currently a best price of 25/1 to win the Grand National with the race shaping up to be an excellent renewal.

Tiger Roll remains the red hot favourite to win the contest for a second year on the bounce with some firms an eye-wateringly short 7/2 about the Gordon Elliott trained star emulating the great Red Rum.

Step Back is however an interesting potential opponent at an each-way price and with such an accomplished jockey on board there is every chance we can see the horse in the frame.
