14 BACKSTAGE Odds: 10-1 J: P Carberry T: G Elliott O: MPR & C.
NEWSBOY SAYS: Having the time of his life until rugbytackled by
riderless My Will at the 20th fence last year. Little to be gleaned from
defeats of inferior point-to-point rivals this spring, but dangerous to
dismiss. 3/5. VALUE SCOPE SAYS: Was unlucky in running last year, but
the stats are against him as he's a hunter chaser and not
Cheltenham class at that. Came up short in a Fox Hunters' here in
2009. 2/5. FOALED: 01/01/2002. LIFE NUMBER: 6. DESTINY NUMBER: 6.
INTERESTING! Gordon Elliott is the youngest trainer to win the Grand
National. He was just 29 when saddling Silver Birch to victory four
years ago. CONTINUED NEXT PAGE
