Scottish Grand National Form Guide

Scottishnational4

The Scottish Grand National is fast approaching and the Ayr marathon could attract a stellar cast as they look to etch their names next to some of the finest staying equine talents in the history of national hunt racing and for punters as well the 2019 Scottish National Betting will be a popular.

2019 Scottish National Form

Beware The Bear

Form This Season: 411

Last seen winning the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, Nicky Henderson's charge will aim to defy top weight to land this prize, but he heads to Ayr in the form of his life and has to be one of the leading contenders for victory.

Vintage Clouds

Form This Season: 1P2F

Well fancied for last weekend's Grand National at Aintree, but fell at the first fence.  However, had shown when second to Beware The Bear in the Ultima Handicap Chase that if he can iron out his jumping issues then must be a lively player on Saturday afternoon. Third in last year's Scottish National.

Dingo Dollar

Form This Season: 4362

Has run some fine races this season without getting his head in front, but his fine third in the Ladbrokes Trophy and his second-placed finished in the Grimthorpe Chase last time out show that he has to be given major consideration here in what is a wide open renewal.

Big River

Form This Season: F64

Fourth in the Ultima last month at Cheltenham, Big River is still lightly raced over fences, but with two wins in seven races over the larger obstacles then there's still potential improvement to come for this Lucinda Russell-trained nine-year-old, who will relish this test of stamina north of the border.

Crosshue Boy

Form This Season: 0053

Beat Dingo Dollar in a decent novice event at this meeting 12 months ago, so will enjoy a return to the track.  Has failed to sparkle over fences this season, but could be a lively challenger if replicating last year's run at this two-day Scottish National festival.

Impulsive Star

Form This Season: 21P

A fine winner of the Classic Chase at Warwick two starts ago, but failed to land a blow when pulled up in the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last month.  Will enjoy the quicker ground at Ayr, and has a chance if replicating his best form.

Carole's Destrier

Form This Season: 3P14P1

Has recorded two wins at Newbury this season and has to be considered a leading challenger, if he can produce his best, but has gone up 6lb for his win in a veterans event at the beginning of March, so will need to continue on an upward curve.
