STAR PREVIEW Aintree Day Two

first_img[dropcap]A[/dropcap]nother big race day and it’s Willie Mullins again holding the ace cards.Only a Paul Nicholls win in tomorrow’s Grand National will prevent Mullins from claiming the GB trainers title but even that would just mask the true strength in depth between the two training establishments. The ammunition that Mullins has at it’s disposal is just mind-boggling and as the layers know only too well seldom fails to fire on the big occasions.Mullins has the banker of the meeting running this afternoon in Vautour who will go off even shorter than yesterday’s 18 length winner Annie Power.He has just five rivals in the JLT Melling Chase at 3.25pm and the biggest danger on the betting is Al Ferof who finished eight lengths behind him in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham. It’s hard to uncover any angles as to why that form should be turned around and Vautour’s narrow defeat at the hands of Cue Card in the King George at Kempton on Boxing Day was made to look even better after Cue Card’s demolition job in the feature race yesterday. Ruby Walsh needs to be sponsored by DFS given the number of armchair rides he’s had this season and Vautour really should be another.I’m also with Mullins and Walsh in the Grade 1 novices’ Hurdle at 2.15pm with Limini. She also streaked home at Cheltenham and remains unbeaten in three races. This is undoubtedly much tougher but she gets the mares’ allowance and can continue her winning run.I’m backing both Limini and Vautour in a Friday win double with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK LIMINI / VAUTOUR double for 15 points at SP with Star SportsThursday: -15.00 pointsWhat’s your view?
