Horses to Watch Out for at the Big Upcoming Races
The big horse racing events offer much more than quality entertainment. Professional and amateur gamblers love to challenge the odds and try their luck, betting on the favourite. If you’re new to horse racing and don’t know where to start, here are some of the horses to watch out for when selecting TWE’s lucky 15 bet at the big upcoming races.
1. Tiger Roll
Irish-bred Tiger Roll threatens to beat Red Rum’s accomplishments by winning the Grand National not only three times, but three times in a row. He is currently recovering from a small knee injury, but the odds are in his favour if he makes it to the next racing season.
2. Anibale Fly
Anibale Fly is another contender that’ll race in the Grand National. With 16-1 odds, it may not look like his chances are high, but all it takes is a quick glance at his previous performance to understand that he could really challenge Tiger Roll.
3. Native River
Irish-bred, British-trained Native River began his racing career in 2014 and is a specialist long-distance steeplechaser. He’s won over £1 million to date and is defined as a true warrior. No doubt, a great horse to keep an eye on.
Cadmium’s first Grand National might be his chance to showcase a competitive spirit. With an excellent start this season, he is quickly becoming one of the favourites for the big upcoming races.
5. Pleasant Company
Trained by Willie Mullins, Pleasant Company is not new to the Grand National. Already accustomed to the racecourse, he could surprise everyone with a winning performance at both Punchestown and Aintree.
6. Burrows Saint
Last season’s Irish National winner Burrows Saint started this season in great shape, with a staggering victory at Punchestown hurdles. Waiting for its first-time Aintree, Burrow Saint is yet another threat for Tiger Roll.
7. Lord Campari
Lord Campari hasn’t won any races yet, but this doesn’t mean he’s not a future champion. He has plenty of experience, and even if he might not win the Grand National just yet, he might as well be one of the first ten.
8. Magic of Light
Another Irish bred impressing horse racing enthusiasts is Magic of Light. Like Burrow Saint, Magic of Light hasn’t run in the Grand National yet but has plenty of victories behind him and enough determination to sway the odds his way.
Rahtvinden is one of the few horses to have won over four miles, and one of the most looked-after horses at the big upcoming races. While he did take a pretty long break after the 2018 season, he already made an impressive comeback and is ready to compete in the Grand National.
10. Any Second Now
Last but not least, Any Second Now also deserves your attention. Foaled in 2012, he hasn’t attended the Grand National before but may end up surprising spectators with his skills and determination. No doubt, a horse to watch out for.
