Perfect Candidate Betting

Perfect Candidate

Perfect Candidate is an 11-year-old trained by Fergal O'Brien, and is set to have his second crack at the Randox Health Grand National on April 14, and having been pulled up in the Aintree showpiece last season, the veteran will be eager to put up a better account in the 2018 renewal.

VERDICT: Unable to land a blow in last year's race, Perfect Candidate is still too high in the weights to feature prominently on his second attempt, and could find life tough at Aintree.
