11st 12lb

J: Harry Cobden

T: Emmet Mullins

2022 Grand National winner and fourth in it (again on good to soft) last year when he was hard work from out the back and never got near the leaders; hurdling on last three starts, winning a Grade 2 but coming up well short when the cheekpieces (which had served him well hitherto) were restored at Cheltenham one month ago; just 1lb lower than last year but his strength of stamina will presumably be well served by a slog in the mud.

J: Harry Cobden

T: Emmet Mullins

2022 Grand National winner who was fourth in that same Aintree race last April; back hurdling with tongue tied this winter and stayed on strongly to win the Grade 2 Cleeve here (3m, good to soft) in January, beating Paisley Park (who gave 6lb) by a head; also effective on soft/heavy; others possess stronger hurdle form but he may be capable of better in this sphere, especially now back in the cheekpieces worn for his National win (also worn last spring); could go well.

J: Donagh Meyler

T: Emmet Mullins

The 2022 Grand National winner was a fine 4th in last season's renewal after occupying the same position in the Gold Cup; is less effective over hurdles but should be able to win this to start back on the road to Cheltenham and Aintree again.

11st 11lb

J: Sean Bowen

T: Emmet Mullins

To win this race last term as just a 7yo and a novice was seriously out of the ordinary and he's built on that with his form this season (now has 19lb higher mark); won over the conventional fences here in December and reverted to looking much more the out-and-out stayer in two runs at Cheltenham since, which meant he never got competitive when 15l fourth in the Gold Cup but keeps him as major contender for the National.

About Noble Yeats

Noble Yeats is a bay gelding who was bred in Ireland by Mrs Kristene Hunter. He was sired by Yeats out of the Flemensfirth mare That’s Moyne. Trained by Emmet Mullins and currently owned by Robert Waley-Cohen, he has amassed over £699,000 in career earnings to date. 

Noble Yeats Career Form And Notable Achievements

Noble Yeats has won 6 of his 18 career races to date, and is most well known for winning the 2022 Grand National at Aintree. He only had the one race over hurdles (which he won), before being sent chasing in the 21/22 season. Having won on debut over fences at Galway, he then failed to win any of his next six races, and was priced up as a 50/1 outsider for the Grand National in April. He put in a phenomenal effort to win, under an expert ride from the owners son, Sam Waley-Cohen, on what was his final ride as a jockey. 

He progressed further in the 22/23 season, winning the Many Clouds Chase at Aintree in December, before a strong-finishing third in the Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham in January. He returned to the Prestbury Park course in March to finish fourth in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, before an attempt at retaining his crown in the Grand National. It wasn’t to be however, finishing fourth off a 19lb higher mark.
