Virgilio is a nine-year-old trained by Dan Skelton, and is set to run in the 2018 Randox Health Grand National at Aintree on April 14. A winner at the Merseyside venue in May last year, this intriguing staying prospect will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing showing last time out at Doncaster in December.

VERDICT: A winner at Aintree in May, Virgilio has struggled to land a blow over fences this season, but could be one that comes to life with a bit of sun on his back, and he could be a lively outsider towards the bottom of the weights.
