Barry Geraghty has been one of the leading jockeys in the UK and Ireland for many years now and will as always be one to follow in the Aintree Grand National Betting. Geraghty has racked up winners in all the big races including the Grand National itself, he was successful on board Monty's Pass in 2003 for trainer Jimmy Mangan. At the moment Henderson works as one of the key jockeys for Nicky Henderson as well as picking up some important rides over in Ireland from some of the top trainers.
Over the past decade Geraghty has won twenty Cheltenham Festival winners which is a remarkable feat and been involved with some of the great horses of the generation. Perhaps Geraghty is best known for his involvement with the great Moscow Flyer who was an Arkle and dual Champion Chase winner at the Cheltenham Festival. He also formed a successful partnership with Kicking King in 2005 when he won his only Gold Cup to date which proved Geraghty was a man for the big occasion.
Geraghty is all but assured a top ride in the Grand National with his job with Nicky Henderson almost guaranteeing that in the future. He is a popular figure in the sport and one that can be relied on to produce the goods which is always in the mind of punters who want to have a bet on the Grand National.
