Runners lined up at the Aintree Grand National

Alpha Des Obeaux Betting

Alpha Des Obeaux is an eight-year-old trained by Mouse Morris and is set to run in the 2018 Randox Health Grand National at Aintree. Morris trained Rule The World to victory in 2016 and will hope this classy performer can sparkle on April 14, but he has failed to build on his win in the Clonmel Oil Chase earlier in the season, and will need a career best to feature here.

VERDICT: Second in the Munster National, Alpha Des Obeaux then went on to win the Clonmel Oil Chase, but since then has found life tough in top notch company, and it's hard to see him playing a primary role on his first attempt at the Grand National on April 14.
