The weight was 10lbs and, as it was, 3 horses were allotted this and they’re Notre Pere, Madison Du Berlais and Albertas Run. This was the weight from the 2009 Grand National when it was awarded to Cloudy Lane that unseated his rider at fencing fifteen. 8st 12lbs, the weight, went a 9 year old trained by Pru Townsley. One which places the horse in 111 on the list of runners that are feasible and a weight this low puts him. After the scratching happen during the next fourteen days, in fact are likely to make it into the race.
Last season Cerium was number 75 on the record and made it he’s number 75 on the record again so his trainer Paul Murphy, is hoping which history will repeat itself this year in addition to Cerium came in a respectable 5th place in the year 2009 and Murphy considers he’s in better shape this year. Ante post favorite Tricky Trickster was given 4lbs after having a powerful run from the AON Chase at Newbury. The Paul Nicholls educated horse will run off the same burden as the Newbury runner-up Niche Market, winner of last season’s Irish Grand National. On paper Tricky trickster seems to be the better of the two horses with more consistent form under his belt, but Niche Market is a few years older and with which comes experience and endurance that ultimately counts for much more at the Grand National.
