RATHVINDEN won the Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse which was used by the stable's Hedgehunter in 2006. Showed that stamina was no issue when landing the National Chase over four miles at last year's Festival. Ridden by a master and will be suited by the ground.
TIGER ROLL is Impossible to leave out having looked as good as ever in the Cross-Country last month. Can he do what so many others couldn't and defend the National? Would be even more of a legend than he already is if he pulled it off. Davy Russell another massive plus, of course.
JOE FARRELL, last year's Scottish National winner who comes into the race on the back of an excellent warm-up at Newbury. Ground no problem.
VINTAGE CLOUDS always does his best and a wind operation looked to have done him the power of good when second in the Ultima at Cheltenham. Attractively weighted and from a stable who has won it before.
