Delusionofgrandeur is an eight-year-old trained by Sue Smith, and is set to run in the 2018 Randox Health Grand National at Aintree on April 14. Third in the Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase earlier in the season, this dour stayer will face a tough task despite having a low weight to carry in the Merseyside showpiece.

VERDICT: A dour stayer, but will lack the class needed to sparkle in this marathon event, and it's hard to see him handing his trainer another Grand National win.
