Another Palm is an Irish seven year old trained by Noel Meade and frequently partnered with jockey Paul Carberry. With only eight lifetime chase starts under his belt he is one of the least experienced horses in the field but that is also due to his age.
[Racecard Another Palm]
He currently lies in spot number 58 on the remaining entries for the 2012 Grand National and unless 18 drop out between now and April 13th then he is unlikely to get a ride in this years renewal at Aintree on April 14th.
On the plus side, if he does make it through, he has never unseated his rider or fallen in his career and only recently encountered his first ‘Pulled Up’ at Uttoxeter on march 17th when racing in the Betfred Midlands Grand National Chase.
Another Palm has run and been successful on a multitude of grounds varying from Good to Heavy and he does have stamina when it counts placing at 3m6f. He has also run quite well at Aintree, finishing 6th in the Becher Handicap Chase on December 3rd, a race which was won by other Grand National hopeful, West End Rocker.
