Vintage Clouds, Beware The Bear And Dingo Dollar Head Stellar Runners For 2019 Scottish Grand National

Vintage Clouds Is One Of The Key Runners For The 2019 Scottish Grand National
Vintage Clouds Is One Of The Key Runners For The 2019 Scottish Grand National

A total of 28 horses have been declared for the 2019 Scottish Grand National at Ayr including Cheltenham Festival winner Beware The Bear.

The biggest race of the season north of the border, there is over £120,000 on offer for the winner this weekend of the 4m stamina testing race and that has ensures that we have a stellar cast list.

There are four horses fighting for favouritism at the time of writing with Dingo Dollar, Big River and Vintage Clouds all being well fancied to challenged the aforementioned Beware The Bear at the head of the odds.

The Nicky Henderson trained chaser will have the burden of top weight after his success in the Ultima Handicap Chase at Cheltenham ,which saw him finish ahead of both Vintage Clouds and Big River, although all three performed with credit.

Vintage Clouds was well backed for the Aintree National last weekend only to fall at the first fence which makes him an interesting contender but punters will have fond memories of his run in this race last year when he finished an excellent 3rd place as a novice.

Neil Mulholland is perhaps the trainer with the strongest team for the race with three genuine contenders heading to Scotland for the Conkwell Grange handler. Carole's Destrier has enjoyed a fantastic return to form back on decent ground and cannot be ruled out, whilst the same can be said of Doing Fine who finished 4th at Ayr last year and Impulsive Star who won the Classic Chase at Warwick earlier this year.

The majority of the jumps season may now be in the record books but there are still some massive races to come, starting on Saturday with the Scottish Grand National and it is shaping up to be a fantastic spectacle.
