Houblon Des Obeaux

Houblon Des Obeaux is an 11-year-old trained by Venetia Williams and is set to line up in the Randox Health Grand National for the second time in his career on April 14, 2018. Tenth in the 2017 renewal, this veteran was last seen finishing third in an Ascot veterans chase, and will be hoping he can improve on last season's finish here.

VERDICT: A regular in top staying handicap chases, Houblon Des Obeaux put up a decent effort when tenth last year, but he has struggled to get his head in front in recent times and may find it tough to improve on last year's performance.
