Saint Are Betting
Saint Are is a 12-year-old trained by Tom George and is set to line up in the Randox Health Grand National for the fifth time in his career on April 14, as he looks to try and bag victory in the race for the first time. Placed on two occasions, this veteran has shown he relishes the unique test of Aintree's spectacle, but will find it tough to finally get his head in front in the 2018 renewal.

VERDICT: A regular in this race, Saint Are was a fine runner-up in 2015 and then outrun his lofty odds to finish third in the 2017 Grand National, but while he will show his best again at Aintree it's hard to see him playing a major role on his fifth run in the world's greatest steeplechase.
