Ruby’s Gem

Only a few jockeys are lucky enough to have their pick of the best horses in the grand national. A.P. McCoy and Ruby Walsh are two such jockeys and the talented pair will both be giving serious thought to the mounts they will pick for the 2012 race.

Punters will pay particular attention to the horses that these two jockeys choose to ride as a nod from either Ruby or A.P. is almost certain to have bookies slashing the odds on any horse they’re connected with, such is their talent for getting their mounts around the Aintree course.

So much interested is generated from Ruby Walsh’s selection that Paddy Power have started giving odds on the horse he will pick. Currently the odds are 1/3 Prince De Beauchene, 5/1 Seabass, 7/1 On His Own and 7/1 on any other horse. Whichever horse Ruby picks you can be almost certain that he will give it the best chance possible of finishing in the money.
