It's the race that stops a nation tomorrow and I'm not talking about a 2m flat race in Australia!
The Grand National takes centre stage at Aintree today and is one of the classiest renewals in the races' history. The sky was the limit for Many Clouds after his success last year and he's 7/1 to complete the double after showing he retains all his ability.*
Silviniaco Conti bids to give Paul Nicholls a second win in the race and there's no doubt he is the class horse in the race, but will he stay..? He's 10/1 if you think he can. Don't forget we're paying FIVE places 1/4 of the odds each way in the 4m4f showpiece as well as all other races live on Channel 4 Racing AND will be TOP PRICE all runners from 10am.
Speaking of each way, I'm pretty keen on Triolo D'Alene at 28/1 for our @stanjamesracing ambassador Nicky Henderson who has certainly embraced the world of social media this week via his @sevenbarrows Twitter account-definitely worth a follow, I'd say! In fact, why not visit www.roadtocheltenham.com to read Henderson's EXCLUSIVE thoughts on his Aintree team today.
Elsewhere, Thistlecrack bids to cap a memorable few days for Colin Tizzard and the reigning staying hurdler is 1/4 to bag another big prize while DOUVAN and YORKHILL bids to secure the trainers' championship for Willie Mullins!

|Races||StanJames Traders||Community on SJ Tipping Game||SJ Marketing||Most backed*|
|2.25 Aintree||The first short one of the day and YORKHILL should make no mistake here having frightened off a large number of the original entries.||Bello Conti||There were a few about yetserday, whcih is why, when our luck's in, we're sticking with the theme: Flying Angel it is.||Yorkhill|
|3.00 Aintree||DOUVAN should bolt up at prohibitive odds at the chief expense of the promising front runner Alisier D'Irlande.||Alisier D'Irelande||Sometimes you need an outsider to even things up: The Game Changer could be just the call.||Douvan|
|3.40 Aintree||Third and final leg of the short ones and THISTELCRACK looks every bit as solid as the other two. Different Gravey looks the value option having missed Cheltenham and rates the danger.||Thistlecrack||When you're special, you're special, you know? Different Gravey, that's us and that's our pick!||Different Gravey|
|4.20 Aintree||Much tougher puzzle and I will take a chance that the handicapper has not got hold of MYSTIFIABLE after his Newbury romp.||Virak||
Okay, if things haven't gone to plan we'll be doing this for the next: Pass the Hat passes inspection for us.
|5.15 Aintree||A really classy renewal and a really serious chance that we might see a horse win the race in consecutive years since Red Rum in the shape of MANY CLOUDS off a 5ib higher mark than last year.||Many Clouds||The pin of destiny is in play... and it's plumped for Wonderful Charm. Well, it fits, sort of!||Shutthefrontdoor|
