Many Clouds    Form: 1-6221    (T: O Sherwood / J: L Aspell)    Age: 9    Weight: 11st 10lbs

A terrific winner of this race 12 months ago, and warmed up for the National with a sublime win at Kelso, so has to be the one to beat again off top weight, and sets the standard as he bids to emulate the mighty Red Rum with back-to-back wins.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

Second in the Grade 1 Betfred Bowl at Aintree last season, David Pipe's raider has been struggling to find his form of late, and was well beaten at Cheltenham last month, so hard to fancy here.  -  £20 Free Bet

Gilgamboa    Form: 1-3455    (T: E Bolger / J: Robbie Power)    Age: 8    Weight: 11st 1lbs

Fifth in the Grade 1 Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham last month, Enda Bolger's eight-year-old will have huge stamina issues, as he found things tough over three miles, so is one to ignore at Aintree.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

On His Own

On His Own    Form: 7U4828    (T: W Mullins / J: Mr P W Mullins)    Age: 12    Weight: 11st 1lbs

Triolo D'Alene

Triolo D'Alene    Form: /P3-15    (T: N Henderson / J: Jeremiah McGrath)    Age: 9    Weight: 11st

A winner over the big fences in the 2013 Topham who was pulled up in the 2014 National. Has looked good in three runs this season and will be better on decent ground. Interesting.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

Sir Des Champs

Sir Des Champs    Form: F4/157    (T: W Mullins / J: Ruby Walsh)    Age: 10    Weight: 10st 13lbs

A Grade 1 winning chaser who has been a shadow of himself since returning from two year break. Trip may bring out the best in him but that would be a leap of faith.  -  £10 Get £10

Classy dual Cheltenham Festival winner, who also has a Grade 1 win on his CV at Aintree, so if he takes to this unique National test then has to be a major player for Jonjo O'Neill.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

Ran really well last year when 5th and has been aimed at a return ever since. Draw a line through his last start when pulled up and should be right in the frame off of a fair mark.  -  £20 Free Bet

Buywise

Buywise    Form: 5-3243    (T: E Williams / J: Paul Moloney)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 10lbs

A quirky gelding, whose jumping can often put him on the back foot, but is an eye-catching big-priced runner who is often found doing his best work in the latter stages of a race.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

Boston Bob

Boston Bob    Form: 0-50P1    (T: W Mullins / J: Paul Townend)    Age: 11    Weight: 10st 10lbs

A previous Grade 1 winner at Aintree, Willie Mullins' veteran landed the Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse last time out, and could well be a lively Irish contender if reproducing his best form, so one to watch.  -  £20 Free Bet

Aachen

Aachen    Form: 411209    (T: Miss V Williams / J: Henry Brooke)    Age: 12    Weight: 10st 10lbs

Morning Assembly

Morning Assembly    Form: /3-224    (T: P Fahy / J: Davy Russell)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 9lbs

In superb form having finished fourth at the Cheltenham Festival last month, and if he takes to the Aintree fences then he could well be a lively Irish each-way contender, who has to be etched into the shortlist.  -  £20 Free Bet

Double Ross

Double Ross    Form: -24599    (T: N Twiston-Davies / J: Ryan Hatch)    Age: 10    Weight: 10st 9lbs

Fifth in the Grand Sefton and Topham Chase over the National fences, so is an accomplished jumper over the obstacles, but his stamina will be an inssue, while he may not be classy enough to figure here.  -  £10 Get £10

Goonyella

Goonyella    Form: 2-3942    (T: J Dreaper / J: J J Burke)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 8lbs

A real stayer, he blossomed when winning the 2015 Midlands Grand Naitonal, and while he will need to improve on his ninth place finish in the Becher Chase, he's one that could well sparkle on his return to Merseyside. One to watch.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

Ucello Conti

Ucello Conti    Form: 1P-623    (T: G Elliott / J: Daryl Jacob)    Age: 8    Weight: 10st 8lbs

French import who has run well on his three starts for Gordon Elliott. Looks an unexposed strong stayer who might be best on good ground. Shortlist.  -  Bet Now

Unioniste

Unioniste    Form: -80312    (T: P Nicholls / J: Nick Scholfield)    Age: 8    Weight: 10st 8lbs

An early faller in the National last year, he was well beaten by Many Clouds last time out at Kelso. Down to a decent mark on his best form which is interesting and might be plugging on.  -  £10 Get £10

Le Reve

Le Reve    Form: P02615    (T: Mrs L Wadham / J: Harry Skelton)    Age: 8    Weight: 10st 8lbs

Fifth in the BetBright Chase at Kempton Park, this eight-year-old can blow hot or cold, but should he take to the National test then could well outrun his lofty odds , and is one to consider off his current mark.  -  £20 Free Bet

Gallant Oscar

Gallant Oscar    Form: 3-1U75    (T: A Martin / J: Mark Walsh)    Age: 10    Weight: 10st 8lbs

Fifth in the Leinster National last time out, Tony Martin's ten-year-old has failed to build on a notable win at Punchestown in May 2015, so may struggle off his current handicap mark to play a primary role in this contest.  -  Bet Now

Onenightinvienna

Onenightinvienna    Form: 1-1225    (T: P Hobbs / J: Tom O'Brien)    Age: 7    Weight: 10st 8lbs

The Last Samuri    Form: 12-311    (T: K Bailey / J: David Bass)    Age: 8    Weight: 10st 8lbs

Kruzhlinin

Kruzhlinin    Form: /72-15    (T: P Hobbs / J: Richard Johnson)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 7lbs

Tenth in the Grand National last season, he caught the eye when finishing fifth in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival, and will benefit for last year's experience, so should be thereabouts.  -  £20 Free Bet

Rule The World

Rule The World    Form: S32254    (T: M Morris / J: Bryan Cooper)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 7lbs

Vics Canvas    Form: 2-85P6    (T: D A McLoughlin / J: Robert Dunne)    Age: 13    Weight: 10st 6lbs

Ran well when 5th in the Becher Chase at Aintree which is a positive but shouldn't be good enough for the National at 13. No Thanks.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

Black Thunder

Black Thunder    Form: 57-0U6    (T: P Nicholls / J: G Sheehan)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 6lbs

Struggled to build on a Listed win at Sandown Park a couple of years ago, and disappointed at that same venue last time out, so will have to recapture his old form if he is to be a factor here, but is very hard to fancy.  -  £20 Free Bet

Ballycasey

Ballycasey    Form: B-4935    (T: W Mullins / J: Ms K Walsh)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 6lbs

Brought down in last year's race, Willie Mullins' charge caught the eye when finishing well at Cheltenham last month, but having only won once in the last two years is hard to fancy now returning to Aintree.  -  £10 Get £10

Vieux Lion Rouge    Form: 111U26    (T: D Pipe / J: James Reveley)    Age: 7    Weight: 10st 5lbs

Home Farm    Form: 7P8-46    (T: H De Bromhead / J: A E Lynch)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 4lbs

Third in the 2013 Irish National, but has failed to improve on that effort over the last couple of seasons. Has been out of form over hurdles, so this test will be far too big for this Irish-trained raider.  -  Bet £10 Get £30

The Romford Pele    Form: -77F38    (T: Miss R Curtis / J: Trevor Whelan)    Age: 9    Weight: 10st 4lbs

Seen to best impact on good ground which should help and has run two decent races over hurdles of late. No mug but shouldn't be good enough to trouble the places.  -  £10 Get £10
