bet365 Midlands Grand National odds: Iron Bridge 11/2 for Uttoxeter success

There are 12 runners set to go to post for the bet365 Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter, with trainer Jonjo O'Neill looking for a third victory in the race.

Just a day after the conclusion of the Cheltenham Festival, jump racing fans can look forward to a real stamina test in this four-mile-two-furlong contest.

Iron Bridge looks set to lead the market, while Willie Mullins’ Mr Incredible - who ran at Cheltenham last year - is expected to run a big race.

(Odds will display when markets are available)

Iron Bridge

Synchronised and Time To Get Up have been Midlands National winners for Jonjo O’Neill and now Iron Bridge could bring him more joy at Uttoxeter.

The eight-year-old hasn’t won since December 2022, but recent form suggests he will be tough to beat, finishing third in February’s Grand National Trial at Haydock, in heavy conditions.

Iron Bridge was second when beaten by a head by Autonomous Cloud at Uttoxeter in March 2023.

Mr Incredible

After more success at Cheltenham this week, the Mullins yard will hope to follow that up with victory for Mr Incredible, whose last run was at last year’s Aintree Grand National.

The eight-year-old unseated jockey Brian Hayes at the Canal Turn second time around when the saddle slipped.

His previous run saw him finish third in last year’s Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Amateur Jockey’s Handicap Chase at the Festival - finishing five-and-three-quarter-lengths behind the winner, Angels Dawn.

Autonomous Cloud

This eight-year-old has two wins at Uttoxeter on his form guide, including a six-and-a-half-length success in November’s Pektron Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase over three miles.

Autonomous Cloud also has a victory over Iron Bridge to his name, after winning a three-mile Handicap Chase at the same venue last March.

My Silver Lining

Emma Lavelle’s My Silver Lining has finished in the top two in each of her last six races, with three wins and three seconds.

The eight-year-old mare has run twice since the turn of the year, winning a three-mile-five-furlong handicap chase at Warwick in January, before finishing second in February’s Grand National Trial at Haydock.

Guetapan Collonges

The Charlie Longsdon-trained charge is another who shouldn’t struggle for stamina, having run regularly over three miles over the last year.

The eight-year-old, owned by JP McManus, finished fourth in this race 12 months ago, after staying on to eventually finish 24 lengths behind the winner, Major Dundee.

Truckers Lodge

The oldest horse in the field, Truckers Lodge will look to become the first 12-year-old since Knock Hill in 1988 to win the Midlands National.

Paul Nicholls’ solo runner is a course-and-distance winner and finished eighth in last year’s race.

Ask Me Early

After struggling in 2023, Harry Fry’s 10-year-old won at Exeter over three miles last time out, on heavy ground in February.

Was pulled up in his last run over three miles at Chepstow in December 2022, after never travelling well.

Farceur Du Large

Looking for a third consecutive win after back-to-back victories at Sandown earlier this year, this is a step up for this gelding.

The nine-year-old only moved to Jamie Snowden’s yard in September 2023, having previously been with Noel Meade.

Gold Clermont

This trip shouldn’t be an issue for Gold Clermont, who finished fourth in a four-mile-one-furlong race at Newcastle last month.

The eight-year-old, now with her third different trainer, will be running in her sixth race since November.

Beauport

Beauport’s only win over the bigger fences came on his chasing debut, over two-miles-four-furlongs at Carlisle in October 2022.

Was pulled up in his last run after never travelling at Warwick in January and was beaten a length-and-a-quarter by Truckers Lodge in a handicap chase at Sandown in December.

Young Dev

Young Dev has shown that he can handle tough conditions, having won a three-mile handicap chase at Navan in February on heavy ground.

The 10-year-old has just three wins in 16 races over the bigger fences.

Foxboro

The outsider of the field, Foxboro was run in both Germany and France in his first couple of years, before joining trainer Robert Walford in December 2020.

A three-mile-six-furlong winner at Exeter in December, the nine-year-old would have to make a big step up to challenge for a place on Saturday.
