King Johns Castle Grand National Gamble

Wednesday 26th March 2008

The Arthur Moore-trained King Johns Castle is a real Grand National gamble and has been the subject of significant support with totesport today. Spokesman Damian Walker said: �The 28-1 soon went and we are now 20-1 about King Johns Castle. �Before today, it seemed obvious that Tony McCoy would plump for 14-1 shot Butler�s Cabin of the JP McManus-owned National horses, but maybe his decision might not be so straightforward given this support for King Johns Castle.

�Every single National winner since Gay Trip won the race in 1970 had previously won over three miles or further and as King Johns Castle hasn�t done that, punters are taking his stamina on trust.� It would be a surprise to us if McCoy rode Butlers Cabin who looks a very unwilling horse these days and this move for King John Castle, suggests McCoy will ride him.
