Bless The Wings

Bless The Wings Betting

Bless The Wings is a 13-year-old trained by Gordon Elliott, and is set to run in the Grand National for the first time on April 14, 2018. Last seen pulling up in the Irish Grand National, this Irish-trained veteran also failed to land a blow at the Cheltenham Festival when slipping up in the Cross Country Chase, and he will find it tough to play a significant part in this year's Aintree showpiece.

VERDICT: A horse coming to the end of his racing career, Bless The Wings has struggled for any sort of consistency this season, and it's hard to see him playing a prominent role on his first attempt at the Grand National.
