Gallant Oscar
View Profile

Despite a number of possible scratchings from the 2015 Grand National, Gallant Oscar needs a total of seventeen horses to come out of the race to be sure of getting a run at Aintree. That looks unlikely at the moment but the fact that the horse has been targeted at Aintree rather than Fairyhouse (where he was favourite for the Irish National) suggests connections would fancy his chances if he did sneak into the field at Aintree.

Horse Age: 9
Trainer: Tony Martin

Horse Star Sign: Taurus

Goonyella
View Profile

Stamina loaded young horse from the legendary stables of Jim Dreaper. Goonyella has yet to win on any going other than heavy so will be hoping for very soft ground if he makes it into the race. Even if he does run his youth and relative inexperience could count against him here.

Horse Age: 7

Cause Of Causes
View Profile

Cause of Causes has history to overcome as no seven-year-old has won the Grand National since 1940. If you can ignore that statistic then the Gordon Elliott trained gelding must have a good chance of keeping up JP McManus' excellent record in this race. Cause of Causes won the four mile National Hunt chase at the Cheltenham Festival so it should be safe to assume that stamina should not be a problem in a race such as the Grand National. However, Cause Of Causes supporters should take into account that the NH Chase was run at quite a sedate gallop something that is extremely unlikely to happen in a Grand National. The likely increase of pace at Aintree will place even more emphasis on stamina and jumping accuracy meaning that Cause of Causes will need to have improved even further to be competitive. Underfoot conditions though would not seem to be a problem for Cause Of Causes as he has won on all grounds from good to heavy. AP McCoy has decided to ride Shutthefrontdoor rather than this horse but Cause Of Causes has an able deputy in Paul Carberry.

Horse Age: 7

Horse Star Sign: Aquarius

First Lieutenant
View Profile

First Lieutenant has been a wonderful servant to Gigginstown House winning the Neptune Novice Hurdle at the Festival and a Betfred Bowl at Aintree as well as many other placings in top-class races. The Mouse Morris trained gelding has amassed over half a million pounds in prize-money but his form has taken a noticeable dip over the last twelve months. A tongue-tie has been applied to First Lieutenant for his last three runs and the son of Presenting has been tried in blinkers at various points this season. Unfortunately these aids have not really brought about a return to the kind of form that saw First Lieutenant finish runner-up in a Lexus Chase and it could be that the ten-year-old gelding is feeling the effects of a tough career. Nina Carberry has been brought in to replace the suspended Bryan Cooper but despite riding plenty of winners for Gigginstown her record over fences in the famous maroon colours is 0 out of 11 over the last five seasons.

Horse Age: 10
Trainer: Mouse Morris
Jockey:
Horse Star Sign: Aries
Horse Trained at: Ireland
Jockey Silks Colour: Red

Double Seven
View Profile

Double Seven has won five races this season, the highlight of which was the 48k Munster National. Trained by former Aintree Grand National winning trainer, Martin Brassil, and owned by JP McManus, he certainly has the right connections for a Grand National. Double Seven has winning form on ground ranging from good to firm to soft but it appears that sound underfoot conditions probably suit him best. He has yet to race over a distance further than three miles but his dam is closely related to disqualified Whitbread Gold Cup winner Cahervillahow so he may improve for this greater test of stamina. Mount of Champion jockey, AP McCoy.

Horse Age: 8
Trainer: Martin Brassil
Jockey:
Horse Star Sign: Pisces
