Le Mercurey Betting
Le Mercurey is a seven-year-old trained by Paul Nicholls and is set to have his first run in the Grand National at Aintree on April 8, but the former Grade 2-winning novice chaser will need a career best if he is to bag glory in the Merseyside marathon.

VERDICT: Placed in some decent races this season, Le Mercurey will be one of the classiest horses lining up in the Grand National, but stamina could be a huge issue for the Paul Nicholls-trained raider, who has struggled to get his head in front in recent times.
