No withdrawals from National field

There were not withdrawals at the final declaration stage for Saturday's Crabbie's Grand National, meanwhile former winner Pineau De Re and Cause Of Causes miss out.

Last year's winner Many Clouds will carry 11st 10lb when he bids to become the first horse since Red Rum to win the race for a second successive season, but he faces some stiff opposition from the likes of dual King George VI Chase winner Silviniaco Conti and First Lieutenant.

Willie Mullins is planning a big assault on the Grand National meeting as he looks to win the UK trainers’ title for the first time and the County Carlow handler will have four runners in the feature with On His Own, Sir Des Champs, Boston Bob and Ballycasey.

His title rival Paul Nicholls will saddle Wonderful Charm, Rocky Creek, Unioniste, Just A Par and Black Thunder as well as Silviniaco Conti.

Jim Dreaper's Goonyella has stood his ground alongside the Mouse Morris-trained Rule the World and Home Farm from Henry de Bromhead's yard.

Barry Geraghty will ride Shutthefrontdoor for owner JP McManus, who also has Gallant Oscar, Gilgamboa and Pendra, while other leading contenders include The Last Samuri, Holywell and The Druids Nephew.

There are four reserves on standby – Bishop’s Road, Knock House, Perfect Candidate and Maggio – should any of the top 40 drop out of the race by 1pm on Friday.
