VERDICT: Shantou Flyer has been on a steep incline this season, and the step up in trip should play to his strengths, but he could well be in the handicapper's grip now, and may struggle to get the better of some more attractively handicapped rivals in this year's Grand National.

Bet on Shantou Flyer for the Grand National.
