Dual Scottish Grand National winner Vicente declared for hat-trick bid at Ayr

VICENTE is bidding to win his third consecutive Scottish Grand National at Ayr on Saturday.

Paul Nicholls' 9-yr-previous, owned by Trevor Hemmings, would be a part of an elite record of horses to 3 Scottish Nationals and develop into solely the second horse to win the just about 4-mile contest three years in a row.

Proprietor Hemmings may even be representing by Sue Smith's Classic Clouds, who agonisingly missed the minimize by one for the Grand National at Aintree final weekend.

Gordon Elliott has gained each the Irish and Aintree Grand Nationals narrowly with Basic Precept and Tiger Roll and goes to finish his personal hat-trick of massive National victories with Fagan.

Folsom Blue, unfortunate within the Irish National on Easter Monday, was a notable absentee from the Elliott yard, with the drying floor not in his favour.

Nicky Henderson, who famously has by no means gained a Grand National in any nation, runs each prime weight Gold Current and Beware The Bear.

Nigel Twiston-Davies runs the novice Ballyoptic and final yr's positioned horses Cogry and Benbens, whereas Colin Tizzard sends Sizing Codelco, Sizing Tennessee and West Strategy.

Jamie Snowden's Reality Of The Matter will get in off backside weight, with Racing Europe and Portrait King the 2 reserves.
