Verdict

Kerry Lee has her string in great nick so STORM CONTROL looks the one to side with given this bold-jumping front-runner also goes really well round here and has been dropped 3 lb in the weights. Cloth Cap's bid for Grand National glory ended abruptly when he was pulled up but he shouldn't be overlooked now back after a wind op. The reliable Cool Mix is not ruled out easily either in a fine heat.

  1. STORM CONTROL (IRE)
  2. CLOTH CAP (IRE)
  3. COOL MIX
