Papagana (9/4), Magic Of Light (5/2), Sensulano (11/4), Coded Message (8/1), Culture De Sivola (8/1), Liberty Bella (20/1)

Verdict
Last year's National runner-up MAGIC OF LIGHT is following a similar path to Aintree having won this race impressively 12 months ago. She has to give weight to the smart Papagana which will be no mean feat and Oliver Sherwood's mare looks the most obvious danger after two Listed wins and a respectable third in the Long Walk here. Sensulano has made a bright start over fences suggesting she may have improved enough to be competive here.
