Conditions ideal for Welsh National winner to make light of big weight

The handicapper was far from lenient in raising Nassalam 16lbs for his dominant win on heavy ground in the 3m6f Welsh Grand National in December.

However, it could be argued that the assessor had little choice given the utterly dominant nature of that 34-length success carrying 11st 4lbs.

Gary Moore’s chaser has a weighty 11st 7lbs burden at Aintree thanks to those exploits, but they also mark him out as one of the field’s most certain stayers of the 4m2f National trip on ground that’s likely to be soft at best come Saturday.

Tip: Nassalam to win @ 20/1 (each-way)

Ellis’ prolific pointer has a wide array of positives in his locker

Latenightpass is a very interesting contender at around the 25/1 mark given he has strong form over the Grand National fences, on soft and heavy ground and in cross country chases over distances of more than 3m5f.

Primarily a point-to-point competitor, the 11-year-old has nonetheless won four of his eight starts over fences under rules, with a further two seconds and a fourth in the Cheltenham Festival Hunter Chase also on his resume.

His record in the 2m5f Open Hunter Chase over the National fences at this meeting in the last three years reads 2-1-4 and his ability to jump atypical obstacles is further reinforced by a win and a second in 3m 5f cross country chases at Cheltenham in 2023.

Tip: Latenightpass to win @ 25/1 (each-way)

Venetia veteran has highlights reel to forgive poor recent form

The 12-year-old Chambard is likely to be Grand National winning trainer Venetia Williams’ sole representative in the race this year and he could outrun his chunky odds despite having been beaten an aggregate of 73 lengths in his last two starts.

Why? As recently as December he was 13 lengths too good for field including the reopposing Coko Beach when running away with the 3m2f Becher Chase over the National fences. Previously he won the 3m2f Kim Muir at Cheltenham in 2022.

Confidence would be higher if the veteran hadn’t been pulled up in the Welsh National and well beaten on his subsequent two starts, but he relished the fences here four months ago, goes well in soft or heavy ground and sneaks in with a light weight.

Tip: Chambard to win @ 66/1 (each-way)
