Timeform In-Play Hints: Aintree Hurdle & Red Rum Chase

It's day one of the National meeting at Aintree

Timeform's In-Play hints focus on the big race of the day, plus a competitive-looking chase.

"The New One has traded at more than 2 times BSP twice when winning during its last 5 starts..."

Race: 15:05 2m 4f Aintree Hurdle

Pace Forecast: Contested.

Specific Pace Hint: Countrywide Flame is unlikely to get things its own way close up and could therefore prove vulnerable in the finish: With no shortage of likely pace-forcers, Grandouet may have a running style that suits.

Individual Price Hint: The New One has traded at more than 2 times BSP twice when winning during its last 5 starts: Thousand Stars traded at 25% or less of BSP and 50% or less of BSP on 2 of its last 5 starts.


Race: 16:15 Aintree, 2m Red Rum Chase

Pace Forecast: Strongly contested.

Specific Pace Hint: There is a chance of a pace burnout early, and Echo Bob and Rebel Rebellion are two who could suffer: There is a chance of a pace burnout early, and Kid Cassidy and Pires are two who may benefit from being produced later.

Individual Price Hint: Echo Bob traded at 10% or less of BSP and 25% or less of BSP on 2 of its last 5 starts: Tanks For That traded at 10% or less of BSP, 25% or less of BSP and 50% or less of BSP on 3 of its last 5 starts.
