The Last Samuri Betting
The Last Samuri was a fine runner-up in last year's Grand National, and the Kim Bailey-trained nine-year-old will attempt to go one better on April 8, when he lines up in the 2017 Grand National, and unsurprisingly he is a prominent figure in the betting.

VERDICT: A gallant runner-up in last year's Grand National, The Last Samuri has been a model of consistency this season and having finished third in the Becher Chase in December, then was a fine second in the Grimthorpe Chase, and has to be regarded a key contender on April 8 for the 2017 Grand National.
