Advertised the requisite stamina for a Grand National runner when winning the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham festival last year and is now a three time festival winner which is no mean feat having won the Triumph Hurdle four years ago and this season's Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase over three miles six furlongs. Trainer Gordon Elliott is enjoying an exceptional 2018 having trained the recent Irish Grand National winner and eight winners at the Cheltenham festival and knows how to prepare an Aintree Grand National winner having won with Silver Birch eleven years ago.

Pleasant Company
View Profile

Lightly raced for a ten-year-old with three wins from nine chase starts and has already shown a high level of form winning two graded events since the application of a hood. Signed off last season with a ninth placed finish in the Grand National where he may have been a bit unlucky as he stumbled badly when tracking the leaders at Valentines on the second circuit. Pleasant Company has had just two underwhelming races this season, although both were in two very hot handicaps. It looks as if Willie Mullins has geared this horse’s campaign this season towards another crack at the Aintree Grand National and it would not be a shock to see him outrun his odds.

Anibale Fly
View Profile

Winner of the Paddy Power Chase back in December at Leopardstown and won in fine style drawing seven lengths clear of Ucello Conti on the run in. Anibale Fly was also still in contention for the 2018 Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown in February when unfortunately coming down two from home and has since finished third in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Owner JP McManus sends out four runners in the 2018 Grand National and won this race eight years ago with Don’t Push It giving AP McCoy his first and only success in the race.

Baie Des Iles
View Profile

Looked a decent prospect over in France where she picked up four wins including a 26k hurdle and 34k chase before moving over to Ross OSullivan three years back. Didn't really show much over hurdles for her new yard but much better over fences winning on her chase debut for the yard at Punchestown, she then finished runner up to Bonny Kate and eighteen lengths ahead of Folsom Blue. Last season she won the Grand National Trial at Punchestown and this year finished third in the same race when re-opposing Folsom Blue who won the race. Seems to enjoy a stamina test especially when the ground is testing which we should get in the 2018 Grand National.

This horse's experience over fences has been very limited with just the four starts but did win a Beginners Chase at Punchestown beating Edwulf who since went on to win the Irish Gold Cup and finished eighth in the 2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup too. Went to the 2018 Grand National Trial at Punchestown but failed to see it out when eventually pulled up but with just four chase starts is sure to be open to improvement for Willie Mullins who won this race thirteen years ago with Hedgehunter although his record since is just two placings from twenty-eight runners.

Total Recall
View Profile

Three wins from four runs since switching to Willie Mullins back in September, winning the Grade 3 Ladbrokes Trophy Handicap Chase (ex Hennessy) over three miles two furlongs in December. Total Recall then took advantage of his lower official rating back over hurdles in February before falling in the Cheltenham Gold Cup in the latter stages having been one of only a handful of runners to make inroads on the two runaway leaders. Three recent Grand National winners had a spin over hurdles in their build up, all career wins have been on soft ground. Trainer Willie Mullins knows how to prepare a Grand National runner having won with Hedgehunter, and Total Recall looks a strong contender in 2018.

Ucello Conti
View Profile

Ucello Conti has yet to win for trainer Gordon Elliott, but he has placed in six high-class handicaps after making the switch to him three years ago. He's finished second twice in the Thyestes Chase at Gowran Park, fourth in the Becher Chase over the Grand National fences here and consecutive second's the last two years in the £97k Paddy Power handicap chase at the Leopardstown Christmas meeting. The ten-year-old son of Martaline is a half-brother to double King George and multiple Grade One winner Silviniaco Conti so it is entirely possible Gordon Elliott’s horse can rate even higher. Ucello Conti was amongst the Grand National runners two years ago finishing sixth but would surely have finished a lot closer but for two very bad blunders at the 19th and 26th fences. He was also a little unlucky when stumbling and unseating his jockey at becher's on the second circuit in the Grand National last year. He returned this season with that excellent effort over Christmas at Leopardstown but couldn't complete the hat trick of placed efforts in the Thyestes when pulling up in January. An experienced Grand National horse representing a Grand National winning trainer who is having an exceptional 2018.

Road To Riches
View Profile

A prolific winner in his time who has been first past the post on nine occasions under Rules. Two of those wins were Grade One chases, and his official rating hit a peak of 167 after finishing third to Coneygree in the Gold Cup four years ago. Unfortunately, Road To Riches hasn't been in that kind of form for some time and is without a win in his last twelve races. This downturn in form has seen his rating plummet down to 142, some twenty-five pounds below his best. If trainer Noel Meade could instigate a return to form Road To Riches would obviously be extremely well handicapped, but he really hasn't shown any form for such a long time that it would be a big leap of faith to support him in a race as competitive as the 2018 Grand National.
