Where's The Money Going?

Chocolate Fish has the flashing light on him in Saturday's 144th running of the Grand National Steeplechase after running home strongly into second place behind race rival Amanood Lad in last week's Koral Steeplechase.

The Shane Brown-trained nine-year-old holds three times more cash than the next best-backed runner in the market, Wise Men Say.

Support in the market for Wise Men Say suggests that the Whanganui visitor is one of the main chances. He was beaten by 20 lengths last Saturday but he has a quality record which includes winning a Grand National and Wellington Chase. The Raymond Connors-trained runner will appreciate the extra trip and any rain that might fall prior to the 2:24pm start time.

The Money Right On The Lolly Bet
4 Chocolate Fish


Multi Of The Week

The bookies point out three runners that caught their attention when doing the form for Saturday.

8 Dez
Riccarton Race 9, Saturday
An unlucky third in last weekend's feature Winter Cup, looks suited with the extra distance and with a fair run at them this Saturday. Hard to beat.

4 Chocolate Fish
Riccarton Park Race 6, Saturday
Not the best winning strike rate over the Steeples but he has really come on this preparation including a runner's up prize in the key lead up race. There's a sense of timing around this individual to grab his first feature jump race.

4 Verry Flash
Pukekohe Park Race 6, Saturday
Holds the title as the most promising winter galloper - with three wins this time in. Up in grade but meets a field that lacks recent form. Take the shorts.
