Aintree For Good Measure ew

Horse racing - Aintree - 08 Apr 13:45

In the opener, I think For Good Measure is worth another chance after a luckless run at Cheltenham. I fancied him for the Pertempts off 138 and he gets to have another crack off the same mark here. He seemed to be travelling well on the turn in the last day only to be severely hampered when trying to make his move in what ultimately was a very rough looking race. This horse has been in good form all season he has placed in 4 of his last 6 and more often then not has been doing his best work at the finish. This horse is a full brother to Balthazar King (second off 150 in the 2014 Grand National) who interestingly got better with age so I think there's still a lot more to come from this gelding especially off a mark of 138. Looking through his form this year his races have worked out quite well. His second at Cheltenham in January was a good run given the third has subsequently won and is now 9lbs higher (our horse just 3lbs higher for a slightly unlucky second - given too much to do).

Champion jockey Richard Johnson hasn't had too many good rides at this meeting (largely down to the lack of quality in this stable these days besides Defi Du Seuil) but I think this horse is definitely one of his better if not the best. This horse is a mid to high 140 horse racing off 138. Definite scope in his mark and he has to be backed at double figure odds today.

I think these odds are pretty barmy. Going double stakes each way here. Think it's worth going 1/5 odds 1-2-3-4-5-6 with Skybet at 12/1. Got to be there or thereabouts.
