Don Poli Odds and Grand National Form 2018

Don Poli has already proved to have been a great servant to his owners have won two races at the Cheltenham Festival and three other Grade One races including the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown. Despite a high strike rate Don Poli perhaps doesn't seem to get the credit he deserves and this may be due to his racing style as the son of Poligote looks a hard ride and requires plenty of driving from Bryan Cooper. The jockey suggests that Don Poli 'just does what he has to do' and the gelding does appear to relish a battle. The seven-year-old gelding moved trainers earlier this year following his owners split from Willie Mullins and is now under the care of Gordon Elliott. Don Poli made an inauspicious start to his career with Elliott when pulling up in early season Grade One at Down Royal. The marathon trip of the Grand National would appear to be exactly what Don Poli wants but given how fast the field tends to go in the early stages there has to be a concern that he may struggle to lay up with such a fast early pace.
