    Yeah they'll have to push him out.

    I think I could let him win without backing him - win only in the National makes me sweat.

    My two against the field are...

    The Tiger win at 5/1 with a few free bets. Can’t disown him now despite his price. He’s hard as nails & takes his racing very well. He’s in better shape than he was 12 months ago & he’ll probably get more suitable ground! Impossible to ignore

    Vintage Clouds 18/1 e/w. A dour stayer! Will be right at the bottom of the weights (provided he gets in), perfect age profile, 3rd in Scottish National = less question marks over the trip, dry forecast so should have his ground, will be his 2nd run since wind op which is a bonus, only worry is the quick 25 day turnaround from the Ultima! Owner buys them with the GN in mind & related to the great Many Clouds. What’s not to like?
