Willie Mullins Prepares for 2019 Grand National
Trainer Willie Mullins has high hopes for 2019 Randox Health Grand National with close champion Pleasant Company. The trainer plans to target Aintree again next year and this time is going for gold. In 2018 we saw Pleasant Company come second in a nose hair finish to Tiger Roll.
The whole national hunt season will be used as preparation for the 2019 Grand National at Aintree as the Mullins camp. Last year’s Grand National champion trainer Gordon Elliot was no doubt delighted with the impressive win. The ante post bets for 2019 have these two horses neck and neck, with pleasant company at impressive odds of 25-1. The bookies favourite is unsurprisingly Tiger Roll at odds of 20-1. Unsure what we mean by ante post? Our betting guide can help you with all you need to know ahead of next year.
Willie Mullins has had an impressive horse racing career over the years. Pleasant Company is not the only horse to be a potential for the 2019 Grand National from the Mullins camp. Previous Cheltenham Festival champion Rathvinden is reportedly in the line-up too. Willie Mullins praised the horse’s success in novice chases and discusses his hopes for the horse to race in the Grand National whether that be the English or Irish race. His odds however aren’t as high as he is currently at odds of 40-1 with Paddy Power and Betfair. We are highly anticipating the Aintree line-up to see which horse make the final cut.
Another Mullins horse to mention is Total Recall who had somewhat of a disappointing season last year. In the 2018 Grand National he was pulled up at the second to last fence which seemed to counteract the 7-1 odds. It is still undecided whether he will be put forward for a return at Aintree in 2019.
Overall, the buzz around the Willie Mullins camp is exciting and we are eager to see what the prestigious trainer has in store for this national hunt season.
