As ever, the Grand National didn’t disappoint on Saturday. Tiger Roll devoured his rivals to make it two wins in a row, emulating the mighty Red Rum. It was an unbelievable performance and those there to witness it can count themselves lucky. Walk In The Mill ran a super race for us at 28/1, landing each way bets in 4th. Regal Encore ran a cracker too, just missing out on place money in 7th. Lake View Lad didn’t get his favoured prominent early position and was pulled up.

Cork Racing Tip: 5.20 – Median Auction Maiden (3yo)
The flat action in Ireland comes from Cork on Sunday and it is a decent card. The highlight is the Listed contest at 3.45 and the favourite Who’s Steph will be hard to beat. Jaega looks an interesting runner for in form Dermot Weld at odds of 10/1. She will need to improve to beat the jolly but for each way players she is a filly that could go well.
However, one that looks a very interesting contender at a bigger price is Clemencia in the finale. This 3yo son of Pour Moi ran a lovely race on debut for Brendan Duke at Navan 8 days ago. Out of a Teofilo mare, this fella is very nicely bred and looks sure to relish the step up to 10f. He showed signs of greenness under Rory Cleary at Navan and he should be a lot wiser this time out.
Clemencia finished 6th of 17 at Navan (8f gd), only a head behind Starlite Dancer in 5th and 7L behind the winner. Kevin Manning takes over in the plate and he has ridden twice as many winners for Duke than any other jockey. This flatter track could suit Clemencia well, and the step up to 10f looks a positive too. This doesn’t look like the strongest of maidens and if he can build on his debut, Clemencia could run a big race at 16/1.
