Beshabar Prepping For 2013 Grand National

Trainer Tim Vaughan has made no bones about it, “It's all about that one day” he said recently about he 2013 Grand National and all his eggs have been placed firmly in the Beshabar basket.

Now 11 years old, the 2011 Coral Scottish National, Beshabar has been off the track since damaging a tendon in last year's Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury but Vaughan has been working hard and steadily building up his workload in preparation for the 2013 Grand National on April 6th where he will head without a prep run, a risky strategy, but one that just might pay off for him.

Speaking in the Racing & Football Outlook Trainer File, Vaughan said: “He's back in after straining a tendon when fifth in last season's Hennessy. He's done loads of road work and is cantering now.

“Touch wood, he seems fine and the plan is a racecourse gallop or two and then straight to the Grand National. It all revolves around that one day.”

Beshabar has ante-post 2013 Grand National Odds of 25/1 with Paddy Power but with no prep run it's a risky choice!
