The Last Samuri won the Class 2 handicap chase organised in Kempton, December last year. The gelding then improved performance by winning the Grimthorpe contest held in Doncaster. During this event, the gelding won with over ten lengths, despite the race being over 3 miles. The win demonstrates that the horse stamina is unquestionable. If The Last Samuri can defeat The Druids Nephew by over 10 lengths during the Grimthorpe event, who can question the horse’s amazing performance?
Considering that the gelding will make history as the first Grimthorpe winner to race at the Grand National since 2008, punters anticipate an easy win for the horse in the Grand National contest. His impressive performance at Doncaster is an indication that the horse is an amazing form to win the race with over 2 lengths. If you are looking to pick any horse in the upcoming Grand National meeting, then The Last Samuri is a good bet for you.
