Aintree Measureofmydreams each way

Horse racing - Aintree - 08 Apr 17:15

My other tip for the National is ironically the other Noel Meade runner Measureofmydreams. I think Meade has a decent double act for the race and again this horse screams plot job. This horse had some very smart novice form - he was a winner at Grade 2 level and was third in the four miler at the Festival. He beat some very good horses in that Grade 2 - Noble Endeavour is now rated 155, Sub Lieutenant is now rated 162 while Pleasant Company is rated 149 and is only 16/1 for this very race! The form of his third in Cheltenham has worked out amazingly too. The winner and runner up were second and third in the Gold Cup and are now rated 162 and 168 respectively; while back in 6th was Vieux Lion Rouge the favourite for this race who is now rated 149!

Measureofmydreams is in the National here off just 146 so there's definite scope on his Handicap mark at the moment. We know this horse stays well. He was always regarded as a stayer by his old trainer Willie Mullins, and would of won the 4 miler but for bumping into high class sorts. So why is he so big? Maybe because he hasn't done much in 2 outings this season. That said there's a good chance he's been aimed at this and that Meade has been protecting his mark. He's a canny trainer.

This horse represents last years winning owners and is wearing cheekpieces for the first time. How convenient of connections to put them on for the first time in the National? I just think he's another who is far too overpriced given his mark and novice form and he's my second pick in what is a tricky looking National.
