Naturally I was made up at the weekend as Raz De Maree, a horse I have followed throughout it’s entire racing career, lifted the Welsh Grand National – a fitting addition to the 13-y-o’s CV.
As many of you know Raz De Maree has been in my Aintree Grand National portfolio for the last few seasons but is he in it at the moment? Well, the answer to that is no.
However much I’d love to see him in April’s renewal I cannot see it happening as the chances of him getting his ground on the day are slim.
If Gavin Cromwell lays him out for another tilt at the Merseyside marathon and the ground doesn’t come up right for him then he will have missed out on other major targets such as the Midlands And Irish Nationals. At this veteran stage in his career there is only one of these races that can be taken in.
It’s certainly a quandary for Cromwell but whatever will be will be.
