Here, SunSport looks at here guaranteed rides for the Grand National Festival at Aintree.

Day One

Blackmore has to wait until the fourth race on the first day to get her first slice of the action.

She will be on 4-1 shot Jason The Militant in the 3.25.

The horse is trained by Henry de Bromhead and is set to go off just behind joint 10-3 favourites Abacadabras and Mcfabulous.

Her next race will be aboard 20-1 outsider Jan Maat in the 4.40.

Bookies are paying five places on the contest so she has a good shot of grabbing some each-way money at appealing odds.

It’s straight back out for the last race then, with Blackmore getting the leg up on 12-1 Me Too Please in the bumper.

Again this looks like more of a punt for a place, with Eileendover the big 4-5 favourite.

Blackmore is set to get her first taste of action on day three in the 3.25 aboard Notebook.

The horse is currently a 13-2 chance in the Aintree Marsh Chase.

Next up is current 7-1 shot Visioman in the 4.05.

And then she gets the ride on Cape Gentleman in the 4.40 Novices’ Hurdle, where she look to lead the 11-2 chance to glory.

Day three

Blackmore is going to ride Minella Times in the Grand National.

Already the horse has been the subject of a surge of market support after punters sussed out that was her most likely ride.

She will almost certainly have more rides on the day but these are yet to be confirmed.
