Willie Mullins hoping for success with Capodanno in 2023 Grand National
Seven-year-old Willie Mullins-trained Capodanno is a leading contender for the 2023 Randox Grand National which takes place at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday, 15th April 2023.
Willie Mullins’ young-gun Capodanno is aiming to follow in Noble Yeats’ footsteps and win the Grand National as a seven-year-old. Having won a Grade 1 amongst novice company, this contender is a very prominent figure in the betting market ahead of the 2023 renewal of the world-famous steeplechase.
Having won the Champion Novice Chase at Punchestown last season, Capodanno has relatively little experience over fences with a mere six outings over the larger obstacles, however he has demonstrated his class with his Grade 1 success and should be considered one of the main players here.
The JP McManus-owned runner has been seen just once on the track since the start of the season when coming in third behind Janidil and Haut En Couleurs at Gowran Park in a Grade 2 contest. Capodanno will be facing a massive step-up in trip for the Grand National and given that he has only contested a maximum of three miles, his stamina isn’t known in marathon races.
Mullins knows what it takes to win these huge contests and many punters will be more than happy to back horses trained by the Mullins team, however Capodanno will be required to produce a massive career best off a 160 mark as he bids to etch his name into the Grand National winners roll.
