Second in the valuable handicap last season, he went on to finish third in the Thyestes and sixth in the Grand National.

He returned to Aintree on Saturday for the Becher Chase and once again ran respectably when beaten only two and a half lengths in fourth behind Vieux Lion Rouge.

"He'll probably go for the Paddy Power now."
