Ain't That A Shame Odds and Grand National Form 2024

Age: 10 Weight: 10-9 Horse No: 0

Ain’t That A Shame is lightly raced for a nine-year-old with only ten races under Rules up to now with two wins. Henry De Bromhead campaigned the gelding at a fairly high level as a novice running against the likes of Gallopin Des Champs and Stattler and then pitching him into the Kim Muir for his first run in a handicap. That trip to Cheltenham probably came too early in his career and he was well beaten behind Chambard that day. However, with the benefit of another summer on his back, the gelding has come back much stronger, putting in three top performances this season so far. Ain’t That A Shame was sent off the 5/1 favourite for his reappearance in the Munster National where he found only The Big Dog a head too good. Next up was the Paddy Power at Leopardstown over Christmas which tends to be one of the most competitive handicaps run in Ireland all season. Again he was sent off favourite but an awkward jump at the last and the tendency to hang on the run-in meant he finished fourth but only beaten one and a quarter lengths. De Bromhead dropped the gelding into calmer waters next time out in a beginners chase at Gowran Park where he ran out a very easy seven length winner. 

Inexperience is not the handicap it used to be in the National with the Minella Times only having ten races over fences and Noble Yeats still classified as a novice last year. Ain’t That A Shame has shown he can cut it in big-field, classy handicaps but the fact that he hung on the run-in at Leopardstown might suggest either he was green or that he was coming to the end of his stamina. His sire is Jeremy, who is also the sire of Corach Rambler, but despite over 3700 runs from that stallion’s progeny, only two have won over twenty-eight furlongs or further. 

As with many in this year’s Grand National field, stamina needs to be taken on trust but with the tendency in the National seeming to be swinging towards runners with plenty of scope for improvement, Ain’t That A Shame certainly tick the boxes on that score. Trainer De Bromhead knows what is required to win the National as does Rachael Blackmore who will ride this horse. That combination is almost always well-backed so it could be prudent to invest on this horse before the price becomes too short.
