With just over 24 hours to go, the line-up for this season’s Grand National has been confirmed.

40 runners will make the trip over the famous Aintree fences, with several fancied runners still remaining in the contest.

The current 4/1 favourite Cloth Cap will be partnered once again with Tom Scudamore, with the aim of giving trainer Jonjo O’Neill his second victory in the contest.
