Over the last 6 years the trainer with the best record at the Aintree Festival has undoubtedly been COLIN TIZZARD
He had a blank year in 2014 when all 6 of his runners finished unplaced but showed nice profits in all of the other 5 years including 2017 where he had an incredible 5 winners from 11 runners and made a 77pt profit at SP.
His figures stack up in any race you care to look at; Hurdles, Chases, handicaps, non-handicaps - his runners all show a profit in the last 6 years. He's had winners at every age from 5yo - 11yo and at just about every distance from 2 miles to 3m 1f.
Over the last 6 years his record in Grade 1 races is a staggering 8 wins and 6 places from 20 runners.
10 of his 12 winners also ran at Cheltenham and show a LSP of +97.49pts but don't be put off by any of his runners not having run at the big March Festival as those types are 2 wins from 10 runners for a LSP of +20pts.
It doesn't seem to matter what the race, Colin Tizzard has the horse for the job.
SYSTEM: BACK EVERY RUNNER FROM THE COLIN TIZZARD STABLE AT AINTREE
If you disregard his Grand National runners, NICKY HENDERSON has a fairly decent record in the Aintree Handicaps with a number of angles worth noting.
Simply backing all his 6yo handicap runners at Aintree at distances up to 2m6f would have given you figures of 5 winners and a place from 14 runners for a LSP of +61pts (since 2012)
Backing his Aintree handicap runners at distances up to 2m6f that had raced in the last 21-45 days would have given you figures of 6 winners and 7 places from 33 runners for a LSP of +47pts (since 2012)
But probably the best way to go is to back Nicky Henderson runners that satisfy these 4 criteria;
- Handicaps up to 2m6f
- Last ran 3 weeks to 3 months ago
- Rated 132+
That would have given you figures of...
And profits in 5 of the last 7 years...

His last 16 handicap runners have all finished UNPLACED!!
