It's Alan Dudman's final day in the tipping chair- and he goes for an outsider at Chelmsford

Tony Martin's Anibale Fly completes a treble of Irish raiders in the top four of the betting with Blaklion, fourth for twice National victor Nigel Twiston-Davies a year ago, the leading home challenger.

As part of the festival, we've put together a sweepstake kit you can download for free, so whether you're in Wokingham, Bracknell or Reading, Berkshire you can enjoy the big race even more with work colleagues, friends or family.

Earlier this year, Blaklion was second in the Grand National Trial Handicap Chase at Haydock Park and underwent an operation three days later to aid his breathing.

Elliott isn't the only Irish trainer to have fancied runners for the National.

Bringing up the rear were ZTE and TCL , whose phones had an average of more than four missed Android security practices. SRL based its research on the firmware on 1,200 Android handsets and checked for every patch rolled out in 2017.

Former Grand National winning trainer Jimmy Mangan says that the Willie Mullins trained Total Recall has a great chance of giving the stable a 2nd Grand National success.

The problem was the Grand National is 4 5/16 miles.

Horse and rider teamed up to good effect in the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown in February, when sixth to Edwulf.

Nicky Henderson's Gold Present appeals as one of the best of the outsiders for the race.

Katie Walsh, sister of jockey Ruby, became the first female in Aintree history to make the frame in the National when third on Seabass in 2012, trained by her father Ted.

"The form is very strong and she (Baie Des Isles) loves the soft going".

Approaching the four-mile mark of the 2017 Grand National, Blaklion had a commanding lead and looked every bit the victor of the famous race.

Baie Des Iles would undoubtedly be a fairytale victor for Katie Walsh, but Total Recall appears a good bet to give Willie Mullins his second National success 13 years after Hedgehunter won in 2005. Overall he is a sound jumper.
