    Grand National runners 2021

    In 2019, the Gordon Elliott-trained 10-year-old became the first horse since Red Rum (victor in 1973, 1974 and 1977) to win back-to-back Grand Nationals. A victory in this year’s race would equal Red Rum’s total of three.

    He is currently 16/1 to land the Aintree feature race and is one of 15 Elliott-trained runners on the entries list, which was released today (Wednesday, 3 February).

    Elliott also has Grade One winners Delta Work and Presenting Percy among his entries.

    2019 Welsh National champion and 2020 Virtual Grand National winner Potters Corner (Christian Williams) — part-owned by Wales rugby union international Jonathan Davies — is also among those aiming for glory on 10 April.

    Jessica Harrington’s 2019 runner-up, Magic Of Light, is on the list, while three-time Betfair Chase winner Bristol De Mai for trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies is also entered.

    Ladbrokes Trophy winner Cloth Cap (Jonjo O’Neill) and impressive Welsh Grand National winner Secret Reprieve (Evan Williams) are also on the initial list.
