Cheltenham form can help in Grand National

Horses that run at the Cheltenham Festival and then appear at the Grand National have often been avoided by punters in the past. This is because they have felt the run at Prestbury Park might have taken too much out of the horse ahead of the 4m4f contest at Aintree. That view has been contradicted by the last two Grand National winners, though, as both of the last two champions ran at the Cheltenham Festival with big runs before scoring in the world’s most famous steeplechase.
