Carlingford Lough

Carlingford Lough Betting

Carlingford Lough is a 12-year-old trained by John Kiely and is set to run in the 2018 Randox Health Grand National at Aintree on April 14. A former winner of the Punchestown Gold Cup, this veteran is struggling to reach those dizzy heights in the twilight of his career, but is one that could prove popular with punters in the each-way markets.

VERDICT: A Grade 1 winner in his prime, Carlingford Lough has struggled to get his head in front in recent times, and while he has dropped in the handicap in recent times it's hard to see him play a major role in the 2018 renewal.
