These are the declared runners but there maybe changes between now and the actually running of the race. Also remember to check back Friday evening for our full review based on our Systemlays ratings for each of the runners along with our indepth analysis and bet recommendations.

The Midnight Club – 10 – 10-13

Well handicap and placed in novice races recently at Cheltenham and Punchestown. Well fancied

Oscar Time - 10 – 10-9

Top Irish Handicap form last year. Does that translate to Grand National success. Not a good history for amateur riders winning this race

What A Friend – 8 – 11-6

Sir Alex’s horse, ran 4th at Cheltenham. Also won the Lexus and Aintree Bowl. Will find friends in the market

Backstage - 9 – 10-12

Was still in contention before being hampered late on last year. Was that his chance?

Ballabriggs - 10 – 11-0

A horse on the up, won the 2010 Kim Muir cup

Big Fella Thanks – 9 – 11-1

Has strong experience of the race which will hold him in good stead. 4th last year, 6th the year. Can he improve on that?

Dont Push It – 11 – 11-10

Finally gave Tony McCoy the Grand National win he craved. Can he repeat the success this year from top weight?

Niche Market - 10 – 10-13

Has experience of the fences and former Irish National winner. One to watch

Silver By Nature - 9 – 10-12

Best of the greys, runner up in Welsh National. Each way chances

Junior – 8 – 9-12

Already got wins at Cheltenham and Ascot, a treble may just be a step to far

Quinz – 7 – 10-8

Won the 2011 Racing Post chace very convincingly

Arbor Supreme – 9 – 10-3

Unseated last year but age is on his side. Will be be stronger for the experience

State of Play – 11 – 10-6

Another with strong and consistent experience of the race. 4th and 3rd in the last two years. Place claims

Ballytrim – 10 – 10-8

Early form as a junior took time to build on. Did win Handicap at Punchestown last year

Becauseicouldntsee – 8 – 10-8

Promising Irish chaser, bags of stamina.

Bluesea Cracker – 9 – 10-4

Irish national winner in 2010

Calgary Bay – 8 – 10-10

Won a strong Grand National trial back in 2009

Hello Bud – 13 – 10-5

Great jumper, 5th in 2010. Also won the Becher Chase

Majestic Concorde – 8 – 11-5

Won the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown. Strong form race for the National.

Merigo – 10 – 10-1

Won the Scottish Grand National in 2010

Midnight Chase – 9 – 11-8

In form of his life, winning 5 of his last 7 starts including one at Cheltenham. Value chances

Notre Pere – 10 – 10-11

Going for a Welsh/Aintree double. First Irish horse to win the Welsh National

West End Rocker – 9 – 10-5

Rare runner for Alan King in the Grand National

Character Building - 11 – 10-4

Another Grey, did complete the course in 2010.

Chief Dan George – 11 – 10-12

A systemlays personal favourite. A great horse over the years. Just missed out on a place last year

In Compliance – 11 – 10-5

Has won grade one chase before. No history or form over 2m6f. Big question marks

One Cool Cooker – 10 – 10-3

Third in Becher Chase, good for line for the National

Tiday Bay – 10 – 11-9

Talented but incosistent horse. This race could be just to his tastes.

Cant Buy Time – 9 – 10-4

Not a good history with the Aintree fences with falls in his last two attempts.

Comply or Die – 12 – 10-8

Winner two years ago but time is catching up with him. 12th last year

Giles Cross – 9 – 10-0

Runner up in the Welsh National after brave run

King Fontaine – 8 – 10-6

Owned by National Winner Trevor Hemmings.  Watch the market on this one

Northern Alliance – 10 – 10-8

Looking for good ground. Talented Irish runner

Or Noir De Somoza – 9 – 11-5

Now with David Pipe after being highly rated in France

Synchonised – 8 – 11-6

Welsh National winner, same connections as Dont Push It

The Tother One – 10 – 11-0

Only won once over fences, but good place history. Others probably make better claims.

Vic Venturi - 11 – 11-6

Got held up several times last year. Be interesting to see what he can do if given clear run

Ballyfitz – 11 – 9-9

Needs to find improvement in his jumping if he is to have an impact. Pass

Frankie Figg - 9 – 10-3

Question marks over his ability to last the distance. Leave alone

Golden Kite – 9 – 10-2

Would love good ground

Killyglen – 9 – 10-10

Grade 2 chase winner, now trained in Ireland

Our Monty – 8 – 10-3

Another wit h strong form lines, 5 wins in last 7

Royal Rosa – 12 – 10-3

Third in Becher Chase, improvement needed

Always Waining – 10 – 10-2

Fully commited horse, could place at big odds

Galant Nuit – 7 – 9-12

Won a big handicap at Cheltenham. Connections have been aiming for this race
