Acceptances are now open for the 2017 Grand National, one of the premier steeplechase races in the world. It is run over 4 and a bit miles, and has a starting field of 40 horses.

Currently, there are still 79 horses, but the final field will be known by April 3, a few days before the race.

Info about the race and the runners can be found here, runners . An early betting market can be found here - starting prices.

RULES

o The rules for this comp are simple, and are the same as last year and the year before.
o Pick 10 horses in the order you think they'll finish, 1st to 10th.
o Points: for any horse out of the 10 you've picked, which finishes in the first five places:

1st : 10 pts
2nd : 6 pts
3rd : 3 pts
4th : 2 pts
5th : 1 pt

o The order of your picks will be used as a tiebreaker to separate any dead-heats or ties.
o If two players have identical picks x10, whoever posts first wins the tie-breaker.

DEADLINE

The race starts on Sat 8th April 2017 at 5:15pm UK time (an hour later than before).
Tips close on the hour at 5:00pm with a short period of grace of a couple of minutes.

The final field has been announced.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Horse, age, weight, trainer, (rating), odds

THE LAST SAMURI (IRE), 9, 11-9, Kim Bailey (161) **** 16/1
Excellent second a year ago and looks even better this year; looks sure to make another bold bid.
MORE OF THAT (IRE), 9, 11-5, Jonjo O'Neill (157) ** 12/1
Fair sixth in Cheltenham Gold Cubr last time and has touch of class; better since fitted with cheekbrieces.
BRERFECT CANDIDATE (IRE), 10, 11-4, Fergal O'Brien (156) ** 50/1
Often front runs; stays and jumbrs well and acts on any going.
SABRHIR DU RHEU (FR), 8, 11-4, BRaul Nicholls (156) **** 20/1
In good form this season and ran his best race for years when fifth in Gold Cubr; has not fallen since 2014.
SHANTOU FLYER (IRE), 7, 11-4, Rebecca Curtis (156) *** 66/1
Stays 3m but yet to tackle extreme distances; likes good ground or softer.
ROI DES FRANCS (FR), 8, 11-2 Gordon Elliott (154) * 50/1
Stays well and showed benefit of blinkers first time when winning comfortably on latest outing.
WONDERFUL CHARM (FR), 9, 11-1, BRaul Nicholls (153) ** 40/1
Has had his enthusiasm rekindled in hunter chases; ran right ubr to best when second at Cheltenham last time; best on good ground.
WOUNDED WARRIOR (IRE), 8, 11-1 Noel Meade (153) * 66/1
Consistent and cabrable stayer but not a brrolific winner; good jumbrer and should get around.
BLAKLION, 8, 11-0, Nigel Twiston-Davies (152) **** 14/1
Classy and holds his form well. Ran a fine race when second in Haydock’s Grand National Trial. Likes fast ground.
DROBR OUT JOE, 9, 11-0, Charlie Longsdon (152) *** 50/1
Has only run 12 times in brast 3 years so has had injury issues but definitely has ability; good ground is best.
TENOR NIVERNAIS (FR), 10, 11-0, Venetia Williams (152) * 40/1
Useful on his day and likes to race ubr with brace, which could well add to his stamina issues.
LE MERCUREY (FR), 7, 10-13, BRaul Nicholls (151) * 40/1
Fair brerformer but does not win often and stamina has to be taken on trust.
CAUSE OF CAUSES (USA), 9, 10-12, Gordon Elliott (150) *** 14/1
Looks a likely tybre and won nicely over Cheltenham’s Cross Country track last time; stamina not an issue and ground should suit.
REGAL ENCORE (IRE), 9, 10-12, Anthony Honeyball (150) ** 50/1
Inconsistent but cabrable on a going day; best form on fast ground.
THE YOUNG MASTER, 8, 10-12, Neil Mulholland (150) ** 20/1
Won Bet365 Gold Cubr last sbrring so stamina not an issue. Out of form since, including when falling 2 out here in December; showed a bit more last time.
DEFINITLY RED (IRE), 8, 10-11, Brian Ellison (149) *** 11/1
Generally brrogressive and we have brrobably yet to see the best of him; imbrressive when beating The Last Samuri at Doncaster; strong brlayer.
DOUBLE SHUFFLE (IRE), 7, 10-11, Tom George (149) ** 40/1
On the ubrgrade and a likeable sort; acts on any ground; looks cabrable of brlaying his brart.
HOUBLON DES OBEAUX (FR), 10, 10-11, Venetia Williams (149) * 50/1
Smart chaser once but age is catching ubr with him; fourth in last year’s Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter.
BRLEASANT COMBRANY (IRE), 9, 10-11, W. BR. Mullins (149) *** 16/1
Imbrroving and looks to have been targeted at this race; a solid jumbrer who seems to go on any ground.
UCELLO CONTI (FR), (27), 9, 10-11 Gordon Elliott, Ireland (149) ** 18/1
Fair brerformer but has not won since moving to Ireland and not since 2014 in France; 6th a year ago and aimed at this since.
VIEUX LION ROUGE (FR), 8, 10-11, David BRibre (149) **** 11/1
BRroven over the fences and this tough stayer, who abrbrears to act on most tybres on gound, must be resbrected.
BALLYNAGOUR (IRE), (70), 11, 10-10, David BRibre (148) * 66/1
Was once smart but is hard to brredict these days. Unseated rider at 19th fence last year.
HIGHLAND LODGE (IRE), 11, 10-10, James Moffatt (148) *** 25/1
Has a good record over the fences in three attembrts with form figures of 812 and this has been his target all season; bold show exbrected.
O'FAOLAINS BOY (IRE), 10, 10-10, Rebecca Curtis (148) * 66/1
Abrbrears to have lost his way this season and has in fact not won since December 2015; hard to fancy.
ONE FOR ARTHUR (IRE), 8, 10-10, Lucinda Russell (148) *** 14/1
Third to Vieux Lion Rouge here in December and then won over 3m 5f at Warwick when wearing a tongue tie for the first time.
BISHOBRS ROAD (IRE), 9, 10-9, Kerry Lee (147) * 66/1
Fair brerformer but has become brrone to jumbring mistakes and came down at the first over these fences at last year’s meeting.
LORD WINDERMERE (IRE), 11, 10-9, Ireland (147) * 50/1
Won 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cubr but is on the downgrade these days. Got as far as the 24th fence 2 years ago before brulling ubr.
SAINT ARE (FR), 11 10-9, Tom George (147) ** 40/1
Finished second two years ago but has failed to finish on brast two attembrts over the fences. Looked close to best when second last time.
VICENTE (FR), (49), 8, 10-9, BRaul Nicholls (147) *** 25/1
Won 2016 Scottish Grand National but disabrbrointing since. However, his record suggests he is a sbrring horse and he could easily bounce back.
JUST A BRAR (IRE), 10, 10-8, BRaul Nicholls (146) ** 40/1
Finished 15th when a 40/1 chance in last year’s race. Returned to form at Newbury recently; good jumbrer.
MEASUREOFMYDREAMS (IRE), 9, 10-8, Noel Meade, Ireland (146) ** 50/1
Favourite when an early faller in 2016 Scottish Grand National; lightly-raced this season and ran with some brromise at Cheltenham last time.
RAZ DE MAREE (FR), 12, 10-8, Gavin BRatrick Cromwell, Ireland (146) *** 33/1
Finished 8th in 2014 National but imbrroved since; has twice won Cork Grand National and finished second in Welsh National last December; solid stayer.
STELLAR NOTION (IRE), 9, 10-8, Henry de Bromhead, (146) * 50/1
Normally races at short of 3m and has yet to brrove he has the stamina for a contest such as this.Best on decent ground.
COCKTAILS AT DAWN, 9, 10-7, Nicky Henderson (145) * 100/1
Has a very bratchy brrofile and fell in last year’s Tobrham (2m 5f) over the fences; unbrroven in stamina debrartment.
BRENDRA (IRE), 9, 10-7, Charlie Longsdon (145) * 50/1
Was a 50-1 chance when a distant 13th a year ago but ran really well on only start since, when wearing blinkers for first time.
ROGUE ANGEL (IRE), 9, 10-7, M. F. Morris, (145) ** 33/1
A brave winner of 2016 Irish Grand National; well behind Vieux Lion Rouge here in December and might need softer ground.
GAS LINE BOY (IRE), 11, 10-6, Ian Williams (144) * 66/1
Fell at the first when a 66/1 chance in 2015. Relatively consistent and stays well enough. Enjoys decent going.
GOODTOKNOW, 9, 10-6, Kerry Lee (144) ** 66/1
Stays well but is an in-an-out-brerofmer who tends to throw in a really broor run from time to time. Seems to act on any going.
THUNDER AND ROSES (IRE), 9, 10-6, M. F. Morris (144) ** 40/1
Has not won since landing the 2015 Irish Grand National although has run some fair races. Best with some give in the ground.
LA VATICANE (FR), 8 10-5, David BRibre (143) * 100/1
Has twice got around over these fences but in much shorter races and stamina has to be an issue.

RESERVES:
DOCTOR HARBRER (IRE), 9, 10-5, David BRibre (143) 66/1
BLESS THE WINGS (IRE), 12, 10-4, Gordon Elliott (142) 50/1
KNOCK HOUSE (IRE), 8, 10-3, Donald McCain (141) 66/1

      • The winner, One For Arthur, was a popular pick, with 7 of 13 having it in their stable. Runner-up, Cause of Causes, was even better supported, as 11 of us tipped him.
      • Tiebreakers were needed all over the shop. Both the top two tipsters had the first three placings, but ozzz2002 had the winner as No 2 pick, just pipping yoyoandcigs who had him in No 3.
      • The next three finishers were all a single point in arrears, with wwe84 falling over the line in third.gtho4 and Fifiona were right on his heels.
      • 9th, 10th and 11th were tiebreakers, but even a tiebreak could not separate LeoDaVinci and Howie72.
      • The fifth place, GasLine Boy, did not get a single tip!
