Blaklion Odds and Grand National Form 2018

For a stable with a reputation for not shying away from a challenge, it seems a little strange that Blaklion did not take his chance this year in what was an unusually open Cheltenham Gold Cup but that must go down as an indication of how strongly his trainer believes the horse will be suited to Aintree. Following Blaklion’s most recent defeat (by Vieux Lion Rouge in the Haydock Grand National trial) Twiston-Davies was quoted as saying that he felt the race at Haydock would put his horse spot on for Aintree and that “we will win the National”. Twiston-Davies is an eternal optimist when it comes to his horses so perhaps such a quote can be taken with a pinch of salt but the Gloucestershire based trainer has won the Grand National twice before so undoubtedly knows the type of horse suited to the Aintree test. The trainer felt that Blaklion’s jumping was clever at Haydock and that he had the type of jumping style that will be suited to Aintree’s unique test. Jockey of the moment, Noel Fehily, has been booked for Blaklion and the addition of a top class jockey riding at the top of his form will make the pair a formidable partnership in the 2017 Grand National
