    Have been looking back through this horse’s Irish form since leaving P.Nicholls.  Looks as if it’s been primed for the race and the trainer seems bullish.  At 14/1 for the cross country chase, i think its a cracking each way bet if it’s anywhere near back to its best.

    Was it last year it was favourite for the National until it got injured?? or was that the year before?

    If in the same form as that time it will walk home a mile clear…

    <br>How is Silver Birch going to reverse recent Cross Country chase form with Heads Onthe Ground – who beat him by 10L at Punchestown and is 12lb better off with Silver Birch next week.

    Not to mention the 19lb turn round with the third horse Never Compromise.

    Silver Birch looks badly handicapped, as he has ever since winning a dire renewal of the Welsh National that didn’t produce a single winner in the following twelve months.

    I’m not saying he’s going to beat the favourite.  Certainly has to have each way claims despite being worse off at the weights.  Looks to have been progressively trained for this race.  Any horse to have won the Welsh National and the Becher Chase is not a bad horse.
