Buywise Betting

Buywise is an 11-year-old trained by Evan Williams and is set to run in the Grand National for a second time in his career on April 14. Twelfth in the 2016 renewal, this veteran was an impressive winner at Sandown Park two starts ago, but will line up at Aintree in the 2018 showpiece as a lively outsider.

VERDICT: A classy performer on his day, Buywise's jumping has often seen him falter on the big stage, but he will improve for his experience in the 2016 Grand National, where he finished 12th and he is sure to be doing his best work in the closing stages on April 14.
