Vieux Lion Rouge Betting

Vieux Lion Rouge

Vieux Lion Rouge is a nine-year-old trained by David Pipe and the Pond House inmate is set to line up in the Grand National for the third time in a row on April 14, and having finished seventh in 2016 he then went a place better to finish sixth in 2017, so he will be hoping to continue his progression in the 2018 renewal at Aintree.

VERDICT: He has not tasted victory since the 2017 Grand National Trial, but Vieux Lion Rouge is a horse with huge experience over Aintree's National fences, and having completed the last two renewals has to be an each-way player, but his stamina issues over the marathon trip will see him falter in the cloising stages.
