Rishi's Saturday Aintree tips


By Rishi Persad
BBC TV pundit

NATIONAL TIP: DAVIDS LAD
Aintree: Live on BBC TV
Saturday, BBC Two, 1145
(All times BST)

Aintree is the home of the Grand National, the most famous race in the world.

The big race itself is part of a big three-day meeting, one of the highlights of the National Hunt season.

The track has two separate courses - the Grand National course, which is used only several times in the year and the Mildmay course.

The Mildmay course is quite sharp and flat and often favours front runners.
