The Champion jockey has been left with a decision between the JP McManus-owned trio of Colbert Station, Lost Glory and Double Seven, with Martin Brassil's eight-year-old the likely choice at this stage.

McCoy told the Daily Telegraph: "After thinking long and hard I am tending towards Double Seven. However, he is a very ground dependant horse and with the rain that is forecast for Aintree on Friday I just hope the going does not become too soft.

"I will not make a definite decision until Thursday morning, but he is my preference at the moment."

McCoy and McManus enjoyed a first Grand National Triumph in 2010 with Don't Push It.
