Thirty-one runners have now been left in the Scottish Grand National to fight it out for the biggest prize in Scottish horse racing.
31 runners have now been declared for the 2023 Scottish Grand National which takes place at Ayr Racecourse on Saturday, 22nd April 2023. The final field for the £200,000 contest will be revealed on Thursday.
2022 runner-up Kitty’s Light is current favourite amongst the leading bookmakers at general odds of 5/1 while Jonjo O’Neill-trained Monbeg Genius and Lucinda Russell’s Your Own Story following at 8/1 and 11/1 respectively. Russell will be hoping to follow on from her success at the Aintree Grand National last weekend when she became the winning trainer with Corach Rambler.
