Thursday’s Racing Tip: Silviniaco Conti to power past Dynaste at Aintree

The Grand National meeting is finally here and we’re in for a cracking day’s racing in Liverpool with four Grade One contests on the menu. The feature chase is the Betfred Bowl Chase, where Ryanair Chase winner Dynaste takes on Silviniaco Conti and First Lieutenant in a cracking event. Lewis Jones has a strong view on the race and has a maximum bet lined up……

I’m not going to lie to you, comrades. I was very underwhelmed when saw the final declarations in the main races today at Aintree.

The Aintree Hurdle had the potential to be a cracker with the likes of Annie Power, My Tent Or Yours and The New One entered but all bar The New One were scratched and he now has what looks a very simple task of landing the odds at 4/11.

I’m a huge fan of The New One and was nearly in tears when he was hampered in the Champion Hurdle. He would have won with a clean run and he’ll win today, but he’s no betting proposition at odds-on, on the basis that he might not be back to his best following a hard race at Cheltenham.

My attention has been drawn to the Betfred Bowl, where I’m all over Silviniaco Conti to see off Dynaste. I still have my reservations about Dynaste fully staying three miles despite his impressive performances at times this season.

The key to him is his jockey Tom Scudamore. He has finally learnt to ride the horse to perfection by coming late with him in order to use his turn of foot. He got it spot on at Cheltenham in a fast run race but in a more tactical affair today he may struggle to get things right on a horse that won’t relish a battle up front.

Hopefully, Noel Fehily on the selection will bound out from the front and use the horse’s stamina to full effect. Some people were disappointed with his performance in the Gold Cup but him and Bobs Worth travelled and jumped like the best two horses in the race.

The result was a strange one and I’m never comfortable putting faith in form where five horses all finish three lengths with each other.

The King George winner is the class act and five point win stakes are advised at a massive 11/4.
