Grand National Cause Of Causes - Each Way

Horse racing - Aintree - 14 Apr 17:15

My first and main selection for this years Grand National is the same as my main selection in last years renewal, good old Cause Of Causes. He was campaigned with this race in mind last season and at the start of this season his trainer said he's take the same route again.

He's a horse that just comes alive in the spring, he's won at the Cheltenham festival for the last three years running and last season he was then 2nd in the Grand National.

He obviously enjoys the spring ground but I suspect he takes a bit of warming up during the season too, hitting form late on.

He's also one of the best handicapped horses in the land. To win at the Cheltenham festival three years running is a remarkable achievement and backs up the fact he's well treated. He's won at the festival off marks of 146, 142 & 142 and then went on to be 2nd in the national off 150 last year.

He's currently on a mark of 152, that's only 2lb higher than when 2nd in this last year. I believe he still has something in hand off that mark. I also get the impression that connections will be trying to lower his mark before weights are revealed, he could end up running in this off 150 or 151.

Most horses improve from their first to second Grand National, with the severe nature of this test that makes sense.

Cause Of Causes was 8th & beaten 27 lengths in the 2015 Grand National, he was then 2nd & beaten 4 lengths in the 2017 renewal. Vast improvement and even better can be expected for his third attempt at this race.

Just such an obvious one for me and he's also good value. We got 40/1 for him last year and despite being 2nd we can still get 33/1 this time, it's 25/1 average. 5 places at 1/4 odds. Double stakes.
