Bets Of The Day: Twister's Ginge should be hard to beat at Aintree

Alan is backing Hollow Ginge to maintain his unbeaten run over fences at Aintree on Sunday

Alan Dudman heads to Aintree on Sunday and is on the lookout for winners with this two selections...

"Plus, he holds a fitness edge on quite a few of his rivals with a run already under his belt."

Back The Hollow Ginge @ 4.507/2 in the 15:35 at Aintree

Muldoon to deliver for the doctor

13:15 Aintree- Back Mr Muldoon @ 3.505/2

Trainer Dr Richard Newland fired in a decent winner on the first day of Cheltenham on Friday, and I am sticking with the yard's Mr Muldoon to claim the honours at Aintree.

He lines up for a good-looking conditionals' race from a mark of 126 - and this will be his first run in a handicap following a perfect start to his hurdling career. The cheekpieces will be a new addition too for today.

A winner on debut in easy fashion at Worcester last month, he followed that up with victory in soft conditions at Kelso when last seen. His stamina really kicked in for that race despite carrying a penalty, and he should improve for the step up in distance on Sunday as he looks to have plenty of staying power.

Ginge can make it two-out-of-two

15:35 Aintree - Back The Hollow Ginge @ 4.507/2

Another trainer amongst the winners at Cheltenham on Friday was Nigel Twiston-Davies with Al Dancer, and the yard could be set for another success with a novice chaser with The Hollow Ginge.

His first run over fences last month was a successful one at Worcester, and it wasn't a bad race despite the small field. He thrashed the 137-rated Follow The Bear by seven lengths and produced a pretty good round of jumping.

He now goes handicapping and his jumping technique can serve him well over the Liverpool fences. Plus, he holds a fitness edge on quite a few of his rivals with a run already under his belt.

Any rain will be a plus as he loves soft ground.
