So in those 6 years....

Roughly 12/13 runners a year on average....

Given us 5 winners....

7 others in the first 4.....

4 others in the minor places (5th and 6th)

So with roughly a third of the field running for you, in 6 years you ought to get 12 horses in the first 6, or 8 in the first 4.

And we're getting 12 in the first 4, and 16 in the first 6.

Young Master won it

Will be interesting to see if that was a one off or whether they've got a tune out of him again after two years looking like he'd given up on the game

Having just bought Timeform Horses to Follow for the current season they are some interesting contenders for this year's National.

They are:-
No Comment
Step Back
Thomas Patrick
Presenting Percy


Presenting Percy is only quoted by Skybet at the moment and maybe more for Gold Cup than National. :cool:

Thomas Patrick will be 7 if taking up his option of running, stat wise a little young as no 7 year old has won since 1940. Stamina could be one of his strengths, winning the Betway Handicap chase last season (in a field of 16) showed promise but my opinion is this is too early. :hope:

No Comment Seems to be a basic 2.5 miler, although was tried at 4 miles, age wise he'll be alright at eight, but doubt whether this is his target. :?

Step Back Statistically is the best age at nine, the National is at the moment very much his long term target. Winning last season's Bet 365 Handicap Gold Cup was most encouraging a very large field of 20 and distance of 3 miles 5 furlongs proves excellent pointers in his form to cracking the coming Grand National. The only downside at the moment is that victory put him up by a stone. Early this season he was 24 length 7th of 12 to The Young Master back in October, but he may have wanted this run. :D
