Weld Will Attempt to Add the Grand National to His Role of Honour

Dermot Weld is widely respected as one of the world's top trainers having trained classic winners on the flat and Cheltenham winners under National Hunt rules. It now looks like Weld will attempt to add another event to his role of honour, by targeting Majestic Concorde at the Grand National in April.

Majestic Concorde first suggested himself as a possible Grand National candidate when he won the Paddy Power Handicap Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas. To win that race a horse has to travel, jump and stay well and those attributes will also be required at Aintree and the Grand National betting shows he could be in with a chance.

A winner on the flat and over both hurdles and fences, the likely good ground at Liverpool on Grand National day will hold no fears and the eight-year-old is worthy of some serious consideration ahead of the big race and anyone looking for Aintree Grand National tips should bear this in mind.

His genius trainer will leave no stone unturned in the build up to the National and the horse is sure to be well schooled at home over Grand National style fences.

Majestic Concorde is a little idle on occasions and wears blinkers in a bid to sharpen him up, if he arrives with all guns blazing and takes to the unique demands of the race he is likely to be in the mix as they cross the Melling Road for the second time.
