Day two of the Grand National Festival 2015 features seven races that will be watched by thousands. From those seven races, your attention should be on the 15:25 Melling Chase, which will feature only 10 runners aged five years or older. The closest comparative race has 16 runners, making it tougher to pick a winner.
Today’s horse racing nap of the day comes from Sky Sports. Ahead of the race, Champagne Fever has been picked out as the favourite at 5/2. This is a great pick in terms of pedigree. Champagne Fever is an Irish horse trained by the legendary Willie Mullins and will be ridden by Ruby Walsh.
The next favourite from the runners is German horse Don Cossack at longer odds of 9/2. This horse is trained by G Elliott and will be ridden by ultra successful jockey A P McCoy, who will push fellow Irishman Ruby Walsh.
