Grand National 2017 in Aintree ready for meeting


Thursday, 6 April 2017 :  The three-day Grand National meeting gets under way at Aintree on Thursday.

Cue Card heads the contenders as he seeks a second successive win in the Betway Bowl (14:50 BST).

The line-up for 40 runners for Saturday’s Grand National will be named at about 10:00 BST on Thursday.

Leading jockey Barry Geraghty is set to pick More Of That ahead of Cause Of Causes. The pair lead four possible contenders for Geraghty’s boss, the racehorse owner JP McManus.

More Of That was sixth in the Gold Cup, while Cause Of Causes won the Cross-Country Chase at last month’s Cheltenham Festival.

Geraghty, who won the National in 2003 on Monty’s Pass, returned to riding at the weekend after being sidelined since breaking six ribs and suffering a collapsed lung in a fall at Kempton at the end of February.

The Irishman faced a dilemma over his National ride but looks likely to opt for the Jonjo O’Neill-trained More Of That, leaving Jamie Codd to once again ride Cause Of Causes for Gordon
