Minella Rocco Odds and Grand National Form 2017

Owner JP McManus paid £260,000 for Minella Rocco in 2014 so big things have obviously been expected of this horse and his first two runs for his new connections resulted in two very easy wins over hurdles. Trainer Jonjo O’Neill said at that point that the horse was a chaser in the making so there must have been concerns when the horse then failed to win on his first four races over fences. In fact Minella Rocco didn’t break his duck over fences till he won at the Cheltenham Festival. The win at Cheltenham was in the four mile National Hunt Chase where the big step up in distance obviously played to the young horse’s strengths. The form of that race has been underlined in spades with the runner-up (Native River) going on to take the Hennessy Gold Cup and the 5th horse, Vicente, taking the Scottish National on his next outing. Minella Rocco reappeared this season in a long distance chase at Cheltenham and caught they eye when staying on in third place behind Viconte Du Noyer. On form Minella Rocco looks to have a great chance in the Grand National but a slight concern must be his tendency to race quite lazily in the early part of his races to the point he has needed reminders to get him to focus in both his last runs. It would be doubtful he would be able to get way with that sort of quirky behaviour in a race like the National. Also, as mentioned with other horses of his age, he will only be seven in April and horses of that age have a terrible record in the Grand National.
