Great Endeavour survived a scare at the last fence to record a seven length victory from runner-up Quantitativeeasing.
“Great Endeavour produced a performance he’d always threatened to in the Paddy Power and although connections have expressed reservations about the trip in the Hennessy, they must surely be tempted given the ease of his victory at Cheltenham,” said Betfred spokesman George Primarolo.
Galaxy Rock has been given a quote of 25/1 by Betfred for the John Smith’s Grand National after winning the opener at Cheltenham this afternoon whilst Unaccompanied is 20/1 for the Champion Hurdle after winning at Naas.
