Double Ross Betting

Double Ross is a ten-year-old staying chaser trained by Nigel Twiston-Davies who is set to run in the 2016 Grand National at Aintree on April 9 and will be a huge outsider for the Merseyside marathon, which has attracted a stellar line-up oozing quality.

Season Form:

  • 15th March 2016 - Cheltenham - Ultima Handicap Chase - 3m, 1f - 9th
  • 30th January 2016 - Doncaster - Sky Bet Chase - 3m - 9th
  • 5th December 2015 - Aintree - Grand Sefton Handicap Chase - 2m, 5f - 5th

  • 31st October 2015 - Ascot - Sodexo Gold Cup Handicap Chase - 2m, 7f - 2nd

Nigel Twiston-Davies's Double Ross has twice tackled the Grand National fences finishing fifth in both the Topham Chase and Grand Sefton, but the Naunton inmate will finally make his first attempt in the Grand National itself on April 9, however, he will be a huge outsider for the Aintree showpiece.

He was a decent second at Ascot on his first start in October, while he wasn't disgraced when fourth in the Paddy Power Gold Cup a month later, before he recorded that aforementioned fifth place finish in the Grand Sefton, which highlighted that he enjoys the unique test of the fences.

He was unable to land a blow in the Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster in January, where he finished ninth, while he occupied the same position at the Cheltenham Festival last month, as he was ninth in the Ultima Handicap Chase, but he will enjoy a return to Aintree and with his trainer in such great form he could be an each-way player.
