Diol Ker and Tout Est Permis have arrived safe and sound to their stables in Haydock where all the Irish are based for the Aintree Meeting this year. Emma Murray and Conor Banahan made the trip across the sea again with them after their successful trip to Cheltenham….no pressure guys but hope you can pull off a winner here too!!
Diol Ker (pictured above) missed Cheltenham in favour of running in the Aintree Ryanair Stayers Hurdle as I think the flat track will suit him better, hopefully it works out for him as he’s a lovely horse!
Tout Est Permis is having a tilt at the Aintree Randox Grand National, and I’ve read somewhere that a grey has not won this race since 2012…..I doubt if his colour will influence his outcome in the race, but if it’s to be the year of a grey horse then I hope it will be him!
Best of luck to all the runners & riders in this race, hope they all come home safe!
