The 40 horses listed below are the runners for the 2016 Grand National at Aintree, listed in weight order – as confirmed on Thursday, April 7 at around 10.30am.

many-clouds

Many Clouds ***** Last year’s winner and looked better than ever at Kelso last time; strong claims for a repeat (8/1).

Silviniaco Conti **** Has class and although sometimes quirky must come into reckoning; solid jumper. (12/1)

First Lieutenant *** Has not won for three years; capable of fair form but well behind Many Clouds a year ago. (33/1)

Wonderful Charm * Likes good ground but has a bit to prove over this trip; inconsistent. (66/1)

Ballynagour **** Well treated on pick of form and signs of return to best recently. (66/1)

O‘Faolains Boy ** In and out performer, but no mistaking ability; signs of revival when running well for long way in Gold Cup at Cheltenham. (40/1)

Gilgamboa *** Serious doubts about his stamina; solid jumper and acts on any going. (66/1)

On His Own ** Looking a little one-paced these days and fell during both previous attempts in this race. (40/1)

The Druids Nephew *** Fell 5 out last year when well fancied; retains ability and not without a chance. (16/1)

Triolo D’Alene *** Has had injury problems and not the force he was, but capable and stays well. (33/1)

Rocky Creek ** Unable to get in the picture in 2014 or 2015; hard to see why this year should be much different. (66/1)

Sir Des Champs ** Has had his issues and lacks a bit of pace now; still capable of fair form; should get around. (40/1)

Aintree

Holywell ***** No question he is well handicapped and showed signs of imminent form revival last time; strong contender. (16/1)

Shutthefrontdoor ** Unable to give AP McCoy the perfect send off when favourite and fifth a year ago; modest form since. (25/1)

Soll *** Tough and consistent; stays really well and loves the mud. Has successfully negotiated the fences on four occasions. (50/1)

Buywise ** Consistent and proficient jumper; type to run well if perhaps not quite being good enough to win. (50/1)

Boston Bob ** Returned to form last time and has to have claims, but tends to be inconsistent. (33/1)

Aachen *** Solid performer and good jumper, but age is against him as only one 12 year-old has won in past 20 years. (100/1)

Morning Assembly *** Looks the right type as he jumps and stays well and has touch of class. Finds winning difficult and last success was in 2013. (33/1)

Double Ross ** Too inconsistent to have much confidence in; has got round both times he has been over these fences. (66/1)

Goonyella *** Stays really well and won Midlands Grand National last year; unseated rider at first on only previous attempt over the fences. (20/1)

Ucello Conti ** Showed modest form in France but has fared a little better since switching stables; more needed though. (33/1)

grand-national-600-400

Unioniste *** An early faller last year; appears best with plenty of give in the ground. (33/1)

Le Reve ** Strong stayer and has recaptured form since being fitted with blinkers; acts on any going. (40/1)

Gallant Oscar ** Capable performer at best but has been well below par this season. (33/1)

OnenightinVienna ** Has shown useful form but has only run four times over fences and experience must surely be an issue. (40/1)

The Last Samuri **** Is progressing well and looks a live contender; appears to act on any going. (12/1)

Kruzhlinin ** Never got into race when distant 10th a year ago; also got round in Becher Chase over the fences in 2014. (25/1)

Rule the World * Hard to fancy; has not won more than 2 years and there are serious stamina doubts. (50/1)

Just a Par *** Useful and on fair mark; looks to be running into form; pulled up in Becher Chase two years ago on only previous try over the fences. (40/1)

Katenko * Rare winner and has not been showing much interest for a while. (66/1)

Vics Canvas *** Fair effort when fifth over the fences in December and certainly one to consider. (66/1)

Black Thunder ** Useful, but appears to run his best races in small fields so this represents a major challenge for him. (50/1)

Ballycasey * Brought down at Canal Turn when a 25-1 chance a year ago; stamina still an unknown. (80/1)

Hadrian’s Approach ** Plagued by injuries in recent years and although once smart, he is definitely a light of former days. (66/1)

Vieux Lion Rouge ** Has bits of form that make him a player but is not that consistent. (66/1)

Pendra * Lightly-raced since finishing modest 10th in 2014 Irish National; does not always find much under pressure. (66/1)

Saint Are **** Runner-up in this race twelve months ago and has excellent record over the fences – 4 completions from four attempts. (25/1)

Home Farm ** Not one to trust and has a fair bit to prove over this sort of distance. (100/1)

The Romford Pele ** Useful stayer in 2014, but has had a few problems; two recent hurdles runs hinted that ability is still there. (50/1)

 

Reserves

Bishops Road *** Progressive and interesting; had plenty in hand when winning Haydock trial; defnite prospects. (33/1)

Knock House ** Does not have that many miles on the clock; type to be suited by this test but may lack the pace to win. (100/1)

Perfect Candidate (66/1)

Maggio (150/1)
