WhichBookie racing analyst Andrew Blair White provides a preview and betting tips for races at Roscommon on Monday 23rd May.
Aintree is a National Hunt Track located in Merseyside, on the border of Liverpool. It has three different courses within the track, with the Hurdles, Mildmay and National courses all providing very different tests for horses.
The National Course is the longest, with it being 2 miles and 2 furlongs in length and like all the courses at Aintree – is left-handed. There are sixteen fences on a single circuit of the National Course. These fences have been reduced in size over the last number of years but are recognised as some of the toughest fences to jump in the whole country.
The Mildmay Course is the course for the regulation chases held at Aintree throughout the year. It is a much tighter track and can suit slightly more agile horses, as it is only 1 mile and 2 furlongs long with eight fences per circuit. However, there are two long straights and it can be a good course for a galloping horse who can get into a good jumping rhythm. It is a flat course but due to a long run-in, and a long home straight – can sometimes be tough to stay.
The Hurdles Course is the oldest of the three courses at Aintree and is traditionally a very fair track for hurdle races. This course is around 1 mile and 3 furlongs per circuit and includes six hurdles. Similarly to the Mildmay Course, there are two long straights with sharp bends.
There are many huge races ran at Aintree every season but a flavour of the best couple can be found in the following list:
