Yep, British weather forecasts are well known for their reliability

Depends which forecast you look at also. The forecast I looked at suggested a stack of rain on Monday with a little bit on the Tuesday and Thursday.

Same as for Cheltenham - whatever happens they will water to make sure the ground is on the soft side of good for horse welfare reasons.

There's plenty of rain forecast between now and the middle of next week. I would hazard a guess at soft/ soft heavy/ heavy. Would be great if we had genuine heavy ground for a change. Nice soft landings for all the horses and hopefully no fatalities. :)

From last year abbott :

The going on the Grand National course remains good, good to soft in places after another overcast day. Between three and six millimetres of water were put on the course today (30 March 2009).

The Mildmay and Hurdles courses have good going. These two courses were watered yesterday and more water will be applied selectively tomorrow.

Andrew Tulloch, the Aintree clerk of the course, will assess the situation tomorrow evening to see if more watering is necessary.

I repeat the going will be good to soft by Saturday if not good (good to soft in places).

There is no reain forecasted from Monday.

The forecast I have seen predicts heavy rain on Monday followed by light rain Tuesday and Wednesday, then dry from Thursday onwards.

Soft at best imo.

Long-range (any further than the next 2-3 days) weather forecasts are pretty much total guesswork.

The fact is no-one knows what the weather will be like from Monday onwards & certainly not what it'll be like Thursday onwards. Could pour down on those days & be a bog. Could be sunny & windy & everyone will be talking about how fast Aintree dries.

My guess is that it'll rain next week & be soft or worse but it's just a guess like everyone else.

Lqast time we had a heavy ground National only 2 horses got round without mishap. H

How is that "great" from a horse welfare perspective or any other ?

Interesting, although you have to take the"Political side of what he will calk it"

Turftrax give 3.8 as a reading for the course, which is very soft

At odds with all those talking heavy ground though, and there's enough of them.

Soul, its probably because unless it resembles the Somme he will call it soft............

Why won't people listen to me. Liverpool is getting no rain from Monday onwards
By:

When: 02 Apr 10 12:27
zilzal, I can't find any evidence to support that. When it was heavy it was Officially called heavy. Also wouldn't argue with any Official call on the ground at Aintree other years. If it was Cheltenham, I'd agree.
By:

The fact that its heavy at Haydock 20 miles West of Aintree gives an indication of what were dealing with.
By:

When: 02 Apr 10 12:38
Soul, things have changed a lot since 2001

If you look at Turftrax, his current reading of 4.9 on the mildmay is given as soft(g/s in places) Now look at the History and you will see just two ticks below at 4.7 a description of soft9Heavy in places)

the current reading for the National course is the lowest on record there, and i cant see it being anything other than heavy at todays reading
By:
SOULDANCER
When: 02 Apr 10 12:50
zilzal, so are you saying the real going will be heavy on the day and Blu Sq are off with their prices. Cos 2-1 soft 4-1 heavy must look nice in that case.
By:
zilzal1
When: 02 Apr 10 12:54
Its now 4/5 Good to Soft 9/4 soft 5/1 Good and 7/1 Heavy


Doesnt add up with those readings
By:

When: 02 Apr 10 12:55
BTW, if it does rain heavily next week you wont get 4/5 for under 13 finishers as the current price...........

Those odds are getting too interesting now and are at odds with most on here. I think he'll call the ground as it is. No reason not to. Doesn't have to protect himself, it's not as if he'll be watering.

undertaker, not interested on betting on going, just fed up with soft, heavy ground talk.
By:

They probably took a score on soft at 9/4 and a fiver on Heavy at 7/1

Aintree clerk of the course Andrew Tulloch expects conditions to improve ahead of the three-day fixture, which commences on Thursday.

He said: "The ground should dry out a bit further during the week.

"The Grand National course is basically soft, heavy by the Canal Turn and Valentine's - it's always a bit easier down there.

"The majority of the rest of the course is lovely jumping ground (soft, good to soft in places).

"I would have thought we would be around good to soft by Saturday."

whatever drying out was done earlier today, was ruined by a heavy shower rain and hail about 1hr ago. The clerk may call its good to soft, but it will be a bog
