Aintree Bowl Tips
Before placing your first bet for the Aintree Bowl, consider general tips that might influence the race's outcome.
Weather can play an important role, resulting in the ground becoming soft when it rains or dry when the weather is milder. Dry surfaces are harder and easier to run on, which could suit some runners more than others. The opposite can be said for wet conditions, leading to harsh surfaces that could hinder runners.
In the run-up to the Aintree Bowl, you can also consider the form of each runner to understand how likely they are to go all the way against their competitors. In addition, for each runner participating, take a look into the trainer behind everything. How does their form look in previous runs of the Aintree Bowl?
Clan Des Obeaux is set to miss out on the upcoming race, having previously won the King George VI chase and the Aintree Bowl twice. This could pave the way for other runners to take the top spot, with the previous winner missing an opportunity to defend their title.
