Aintree Lucky 15 Betting Tips:
1.40pm Aintree – Josses Hill
Josses Hill had three of these behind him in the Arkle last time and with this trip of two and a half miles more likely to suit him rather than main danger Vibrato Valtat he looks the one to side with here.
2.15pm Aintree – Hargam
The rain went against Hargam on Triumph Hurdle day but he still ran a stormer to finish third. The flatter track and drier ground are going to suit him well and it is hard to look beyond him as long as Cheltenham didn't take too much out of him.
2.50pm Aintree – Silviniaco Conti
Silviniaco Conti showed once again that Cheltenham isn't his favourite track when flopping in the Gold Cup. He wasn't given a hard time once his chance was gone which, with the return to a flatter track will benefit him. On his King George run he will be a very tough nut for his rivals to crack.
3.25pm Aintree – Rock On Ruby
While Arctic Fire and Jezki were slogging it out in the Champion Hurdle, Rock On Ruby was at home after a dirty scope. The freshness might just work in his favour with Jezki having plenty to prove after a flat Cheltenham run and Arctic Fire likely to have his stamina truly tested.
