The Young Master Betting
The Young Master is an eight-year-old trained by Neil Mulholland, and is set to have his first crack at the Grand National at Aintree on April 8. A creditable sixth in a competitive handicap chase at the Cheltenham Festival, he will hope to use that fine effort as a springboard to glory on Merseyside in the world's greatest steeplechase.

VERDICT: A fine winner of the bet365 Gold Cup last season, The Young Master was a faller when well beaten in the Becher Chase in December, but if he can build on a decent effort at Cheltenham last time out then could be an each-way candidate.
