Baie Des Iles

Baie Des Iles Betting

Baie Des Iles is a seven-year-old trained by Ross O'Sullivan and is set to run in the 2018 Randox Health Grand National at Aintree on April 14. A winner of a notable Irish Grand National Trial at Punchestown last season, this contender was third in that same race in 2018, and will be hoping to use it as a springboard to Merseyside glory at the first attempt.

VERDICT: A lightly-raced performer, Baie Des Iles is a horse that will relish testing underfoot conditions at Aintree, and the Ross O'Sullivan-trained seven-year-old can figure prominently if there is any significant rain in the lead-up to the race, but may ultimately struggle to live with some classier rivals.
