    Run Wild Fred odds slashed for Grand National following Troytown success

     

    The ante-post odds for Run Wild Fred in the 2022 Randox Grand National have been halved after he put in a thoroughly commanding performance Navan in the Ladbrokes Troytown Handicap Chase. The gordon Elliott-trained runner dominated in a field of fifteen with some excellent jumping and a solid front-running display throughout. In the early stages, jockey Davy Russell had company in the form of Defi Bleu in the earlier stages of the contest, while at the business end of the feature race win the card, Mister Fogpatches emerged as one of the principal threats.

    In the end, the 4/1 favourite was near under any serious threat in the closing stages of the race. Indeed the seven-year-old proved that staying was very much his game when finishing as runner-up in last season’s Irish Grand National.

    Mister Fogpatches finished seven-and-a-half lengths behind the winner in second, giving Gordon Elliott a one-two in the contest.

    Elliott said: “I thought they were the two horses that maybe stood out among ours, a lot of the others ran good races.

    “I’m delighted for myself, number one, to win the race, for all the staff in the yard, for all my owners as well. Gigginstown have stood by me 100 per cent through thick and thin.

    “It’s proud day to be here at my local track and you can see all the crowd here, it’s brilliant with family and friends enjoying it as well.

    “As everyone knows we’ve been through a tough year, but we’re back now and we’re training winners, the team I have behind me is unbelievable.

    “You can see all the staff, and the way they turn the horses out, I’m proud of them all. I told them the other day if we won the Troytown they could have a half day tomorrow, so I think I’m going to have to give them a half day!”

    On the back of this impressive win, the odds on Run Wild Fred winning the Grand National were slashed from 33/1 to just 16/1 by most bookies.
