Formscan - This most famous race has tended to see some quirky individuals come alive around the National fences in the past and there are none more so in this year's field than MR INCREDIBLE. The seven-year-old has been eye-catching when staying on from off the pace in the Kim Muir and Classic Chase this season, both excellent trials for this unique contest. No winner has carried more than 11-10 to win the National since the mighty Red Rum and that stat does not bode well for last year's one-two, Noble Yeats (first) and Any Second Now, both of whom arrive in fine form. Last year's third Delta Work is now 20lb better off with the winner and arrives on the back of another excellent win in the Cross Country at Cheltenham, while Corach Rambler is 10lb well-in after doubling up in the Ultima. The Big Dog is another dour stayer who has already notched up victories in the Munster National and Troytown this season, while on the other side of the water, Le Milos and Our Power have done similar. One to note at a big price could be Gabbys Cross, who has a very similar profile to Henry De Bromhead's 2021 winner Minella Times.
