Last year's third (off 145) has had a quiet season in build-up to another Aintree National bid but 80-1 shot brought down very early on; probably not quite the force of old but still respected and seemingly the owner's pick here from five runners.

Fourth in this race in 2018 and fifth in 2019, immediately following his two placed efforts in the Cheltenham Gold Cup; while nothing like so good since and out the back from the word go in his 2021 National bid, taking third at Punchestown (3m7f; in cheekpieces) last May showed that significant ability remained and today's big step back up in trip should suit.

Pulled up in last year's National before running a belter at the Punchestown Festival last year when hitting the frame; struggled over hurdles this term over an insufficient trip and while he ran with credit when not beaten all that far at Fairyhouse last time, he'll probably struggle over this trip back over fences.
