Manfiesto Novices’ Chase Result
- Protektorat 17/2 (Harry Skelton, Dan Skelton)
- The Shunter 7/2 (Brian Hayes, Emmet Mullins)
- Hitman 100/30 (Harry Cobden, Paul Nicholls)
Protektorat bounced back to form with victory in the opening Manifesto Novices’ Chase. With favourite Fusil Raffles pulling up after a mistake down the back, Hitman was left in front. Pressed by The Shunter, recently purchased by JP McManus, Protektorat picked the pair off in the home straight with a 3 3/4 lengths victory.
Anniversary Juvenile Hurdle Result
- Monmiral 10/11F (Harry Cobden, Paul Nicholls)
- Adagio 13/8 (Tom Scudamore, David Pipe)
- Fiveandtwenty 12/1 (Brian Huges, Donald McCain)
One of the most impressive Grand National day 1 winners was Monmiral. Paul Nicholls chose to skip Cheltenham and come to Aintree for this race. He cruised past front-running filly Fiveandtwenty and main market rival Adagio, who made a crucial mistake after a long season, for a ready 7 1/2 lengths success.
Betway Bowl Result
- Clan Des Obeaux 5/2F (Harry Cobden, Paul Nicholls)
- Clondaw Castle 13/2 (Jonathan Burke, Tom George)
- Native River 4/1 (Jonjo O’Neill Junior, Colin Tizzard)
Clan Des Obeaux made it a treble for the owners with cheekpieces working the oracle. Mister Fisher falling early on the second circuit left him in front a long way from home, but he found more when Clondaw Castle came to challenge and left him for dead. Clan Des Obeaux pulled 26 lengths clear of the runner-up with his rival strung out like washing. Native River plugged on for third and and dual Grand National hero Tiger Roll was a remote fourth.
Aintree Hurdle Result
- Abacadabras 5/1 (Jack Kennedy, Denise Foster)
- Buzz 22/1 (James Bowen, Nicky Henderson)
- Millers Bank 80/1 (Kielan Woods, Alex Hales)
- Buveur D’Air 6/1 (Nico de Boinville, Nicky Henderson)
Abacadabras gained compensation for his Champion Hurdle fall in a dramatic Aintree Hurdle. Stepping up in trip brought out the best of the Gigginstown House Stud runner. Song For Someone pulled up after never going a yard and favourite Jason The Militant unseated jockey Rachael Blackmore. The loose horse hampered the well-backed Buveur D’Air, who faded into fourth on the run-in. He helped Abacadabras run out a 1 1/4 lengths victor over Buzz and an even bigger outsider in Millers Bank. McFabulous, meanwhile, was last to finish.
Open Hunters’ Chase Result
- Cousin Pascal 66/1 (James King, Joe O’Shea)
- Latenightpass 11/2 (Gina Andrews, T Ellis)
- Cat Tiger 11/2 (David Maxwell, Paul Nicholls)
- Clondaw Westie 200/1 (Izzie Marshall, Lawney Hill)
- Billaway 2/1F (Patrick Mullins, Willie Mullins)
Cousin Pascal pulled off a surprise win in the Hunter Chase for amateur jockey James King, no stranger to Aintree success. He found most on the long run-in for a three-length victory over Latenightpass under Gina Andrews. Cat Tiger was a further 10 lengths behind in third for David Maxwell and Nicholls. The favourite Billaway wasn’t fluent and only fifth behind 200/1 outsider Clondaw Westie.
Red Rum Handicap Chase Result
- Editeur Du Gite 9/1 (Joshua Moore, Garry Moore)
- Sully D’Oc Aa 12/1 (Richie McLernon, Anthony Honeyball)
- Dostal Phil 17/2 (Tom O’Brien, Philip Hobbs)
- Frero Banbou 10/1 (Charlie Deutsch, Venetia Williams)
The front-running Editeur Du Gite was also among Grand National day 1 winners in the race honouring Aintree legend Red Rum. He made all for trainer Gary Moore and son Josh, holding fast-finishing McManus owned duo Sull D’Oc Aa and Dostal Phil by a length and 1 3/4 lengths. That front three pulled six lengths and upwards clear of the remainder.
Nickel Coin Mares’ Bumper Result
- Me Too Please 14/1 (Rachael Blackmore, Arthur Moore)
- Elle Est Belle 5/2 (Harry Skelton, Dan Skelton)
- Miss Lamb 20/1 (Jack Garritty, Jedd O’Keeffe)
Irish raider Me Too Please made up for Blackmore’s earlier fall on Jason The Militant as she took the Mares’ Bumper that ended the opening day. She needed keeping up to her work for victory over Cheltenham Champion Bumper third Elle Est Belle for the Skeltons. Miss Lamb reversed Market Rasen form with the even-money favourite Eileendover to be third.
