The Scottish Grand National Tip is not so straight forward as this Coral Scottish National has a very strange look to it. There are 3 horse in the handicap proper so in effect one should not look beyond these three, who are Halcon Genelardais, Halcon Genelardais and Opera Mundi. All the rest should really struggle, but Horse racing never really works out as it should.
There has been last minute support for the Tony Martin trained horse Patsy Hall and this in itself is a tip. Then if you are a sporting person Flintoff owned by the test hero Andrew of the same name might run up to his best as his owner made it back to the cricket field this week after a long absence on the sidelines. How about Wild Cane Ridge who has not lost his last 4 races at the Ayr race track, the question here is his jumping but he could have a good jumping day as we have not seen him run over the larger fences for a while.
But we have done our home work and Old Benny is not favourite for nothing and his victory at Cheltenham in the Peter O'Sullevan National Hunt Chase Challenge Cup comes with great credentials for Grand National winners. The last couple of winners of this race have gone onto win Grand Nationals, the Irish and Scottish and so this is who we have to tip up.
