Top tipster Andrew Mount has bets at Aintree and Leicester on Friday. Check out his selections below, along with a pair of excellent sign-up offers for new customers looking to give their funds a timely boost in time for Grand National weekend.
MO CELITA – (1.35 Leicester, 2pts win, 11/4)
A lower draw would have been preferable but I still want to side with MO CELITA, who makes her debut for Adrian Nicholls. Her new trainer has won with six of his 16 runners in sellers for a profit of £35.50 to a £1 level stake at SP, improving to three from three with those making their debuts for the yard (17-2, 4-1 and 3-1). She showed promise in three runs at Dundalk for her previous trainer and could prove hard to beat.
MIDNIGHT RIVER – (4.40 Aintree, 1pt each-way - 11/1)
MIDNIGHT RIVER was the 1-4 favourite when scoring at Leicester in November but that was still worthy of an upgrade as he raced in the ‘swamp’ on the inside rail. His subsequent Grade 2 fourth at Warwick was also better than it looked as he came from midfield on that pace-favouring track. He got back to winning ways at Ascot last time, despite failing to settle, and the better ground could bring about further improvement.
