Last year we tipped up Warne trained by Bryan Hamilton in Northern Ireland and victorous over the highly rated Tammys Hill at Fairyhouse last month. Pre - race his trainer commented: "The plan is to run Warne. He has been in very good form since his win at Fairyhouse and we decided straight after to let him take his chance at Aintree.The reason we did not go to Cheltenham with him is because three miles two and a half furlongs is too far for him. He is quite trip dependent and that is why we planned to go to Aintree - we never even thought about going to Cheltenham. The three miles at Leopardstown was too far for him. He travelled as well as Salsify and Tammys Hill but jumped the second last and fell in a hole. An extended two and a half miles is his ideal trip.He has plenty of pace and travels well through his races and better ground will definitely benefit him as well. He is a very good jumper - quick and accurate - and I am hoping he gives a good account of himself. If he jumps round, he would have to have a good chance."
