Verdict

Treacle, who has failed to complete the course in the last two Grand Nationals, hasn't raced over timber since 2007 and is rated 21lb lower than over fences. Datokepe won a chase at Kilbeggan in May and doesn't look badly treated over hurdles despite his big weight. Golden Kite alternates between the two sets of obstacles and is another well treated over timber after scoring over fences last time. COURTNCATCHER gained his first success on his 19th start over the course and distance a month ago and though 7lb higher can complete the double. Raheenwood wasn't far behind and is respected along with easy Gowran maiden winner Best Value. The four-year-old Faanan Aldaar has plenty more to offer and enters the fray in good form on a lowly mark.
