Tom Scudamore


J: Tom Scudamore
T: David Pipe
Age: 9
Weight: 10-11
OR: 133
Days: 77

The David Pipe trained Remastered goes back over hurdles in this event and is handicapped to go close on the best of his form.

The nine year old gelding has been a tremendous horse for the yard over the years, last term starting his season off by landing a hat-trick of wins at Wetherby, Ascot and Carlisle.

His win at Ascot saw him step up to three miles and battle strongly to the line to land the Grade Two Reynoldstown Novices' Chase.

He was then sent to the Cheltenham festival for the National Hunt Chase and was unfortunately outclassed into fifth.Not seen again until his seasonal debut this term, he started off at Aintree in a Pertemps Handicap Hurdle finishing a narrow third behind two nice types.

This set him up perfectly for a big run in the Grade Three Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury and until falling four out, he looked the most likely winner of the race.

Running off the same mark for next time out in the Tommy Whittle Handicap Chase he was a fair second giving over a stone away to the winner.

He then went back over the same course and distance in the Grade Two Peter Marsh Handicap Chase and was a fair fourth behind Gold Cup fifth Royal Pagaille.

He is now back over hurdles after a wind operation off a mark of 133 which is 13lb lower than his chase mark and on that basis has every chance.

Nico de Boinville

Walking On Air

J: Nico de Boinville
T: Nicky Henderson
Age: 5
Weight: 11-4
Days: 80

The first Grade One of the afternoon on the final day of the Aintree Grand National festival is the Mersey Novices' Hurdle over 2m4f and Walking On Air for Nicky Henderson could be anything.

The five year old son of Walk In The Park made his rules debut in March last year at Kempton in a two mile bumper and was a good second behind Shallwehaveonemore.

Sent over hurdles this season he has only been seen once but what a performance it was taking out a Novice Hurdle by 13 lengths over two miles.

He looks as thought the step up in trip will bring more improvement and being one of the most unexposed horses in the field he is worth a go.

Harry Cobden

Henri The Second

J: Harry Cobden
T: Paul Nicholls
Age: 5
Weight: 11-4
OR: 123
Days: 113

The final runner of the Aintree Grand National festival is the Grade Two bumper and Paul Nicholls will be looking to sign off the meeting with a bang with Henri The Second.

The five year old has been seen twice to date winning both his events in fine style, first time out at Chepstow by close to nine lengths and then last time out in a much better Listed vent when beating Champion Bumper fifth Authorised Speed by a length.

Paul Nicholls has won the last two renewals of this race with McFabulous and Knappers Hill, with Challow Hurdle winner Stage Star also third in this race last year.

Big player with the trainer targeting this race.
