ITV will be broadcasting five live races from the 2021 Grand National meeting at Aintree on Friday. The action on day two features some high-class names, notably Dusart, Chantry House and Politologue, and we’ve got you covered for the day’s terrestrial TV coverage.


Aintree Friday: ITV Racing tips

Our Spotlight experts select their best bets for day two of the Grand National festival

2.20 Aintree
Betway Top Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 1), 2m½f

Nicky Henderson has won five of the last ten runnings of this novice hurdle and saddles favourite Dusart.

The Ronnie Bartlett-owned six-year-old defeated subsequent Betfair Hurdle winner Soaring Glory on his sole start at Newbury and was described as a “real stand-out animal” by jockey Nico de Boinville.

His rivals include Supreme third For Pleasure, County Hurdle winner Belfast Banter and Third Time Lucki.

SPOTLIGHT TIP: AJERO

Highly progressive on sharp/flat tracks; respected in this perfect scenario

2.50 Aintree
Betway Mildmay Novices’ Chase (Grade 1), 3m1f

Another Grade 1 favourite for Nicky Henderson as Marsh Novices’ Chase scorer Chantry House bids to complete a Cheltenham-Aintree double.

Envoi Allen’s early exit changed the complexion of the Marsh but Chantry House was a ready winner and Henderson landed this race with Might Bite and Terrefort in 2017 and 2018. The betting suggests the progressive Espoir De Romay, a two-time winner from three starts in novice chases, is the main danger for Kim Bailey.

SPOTLIGHT TIP: ESPOIR DE ROMAY

Produced a big figure (RPR 163) in Leicester handicap last time; improving; respected

 

3.25 Aintree
Marsh Chase (registered as the Melling Chase) (Grade 1), 2m4f

Politologue runs in the day two feature for the third time having been successful in 2018 and runner-up to Min the following year.

His trainer Paul Nicholls also runs Master Tommytucker and outsider Duc Des Genievres, with Politologue vying for favouritism with Ryanair Chase second Fakir D’Oudairies.

SPOTLIGHT TIP: POLITOLOGUE

Four-time Grade 1 winner, including this race in 2018; leading claims if at his best

4.05 Aintree
Randox Topham Handicap Chase (Grade 3), 2m5f

Willie Mullins seeks back-to-back wins in this race over the National fences and saddles two runners – favourite Livelovelaugh and Robin Des Foret.

Henderson has a four-strong squad in Caribean Boy, Morning Vicar, Precious Cargo and Lust For Glory, while the Alex Hales-trained Huntsman Son has claims after an encouraging sixth in the Paddy Power Plate at the Cheltenham Festival.

SPOTLIGHT TIP: LIVELOVELAUGH

On long losing run but has gone well over these fences previously and arrives in good form

4.40 Aintree

Doom Bar Sefton Novices’ Hurdle (Grade 1), 3m½f

Challow winner and Ballymore third Bravemansgame sets the standard in this top-level novice hurdle.

Irish Cesarewitch and Dovecote scorer Cape Gentleman looks a main threat for Emmet Mullins and Gallyhill, a £450,000 purchase in 2019, is an intriguing alternative stepped up in trip.

SPOTLIGHT TIP: GALLYHILL

£450,000 buy; plenty to find on his runs under rules but could improve lots for going 3m
