A surprise winner in the 2013 Becher Chase at Aintree, Chance Du Roy went off at 14/1 for trainer Philip Hobbs and was ridden by Tom O'Brien.
A classy horse, who at 10-years-of age, has had some notable wins from his 22 chase starts, he didn't quite make the initial line-up for the 2014 Crabbies Grand National when the weights were announced and with 10-06 he started in 47th place which these days almost guarantees you a spot at the starting tape.
Winner of the Becher Chase and 6th in the Grand National in 2014
Chance Du Roy was one of four Philip Hobbs trained horses and along with Balthazar King and Planet Of Sound gave the trainer a real boost in the search for his elusive first Grand National win.
Chance Du Roy has run at Aintree five times returning a win and a second place so he knows how to get around the tricky fences. He has stamina in bucket loads and runs best on Good ground so he ticks plenty of boxes when considering the each-way bet for the 2015 Grand National.
He completed the Grand National course in fine style in 2014 finishing in 6th place for jockey Tom O'Brien and earned connections £13,200 and should be back again to try his luck in 2015.
