40 horses in all will attempt to the navigate the 30-fence, four mile, 514 yard steeplechase course, with the race scheduled to begin at 5:15pm on Saturday. 

Ahead of the nation's favourite race, we take a look at the main market movers.

The 10-year-old gelding has not had a win since February last year but that has not stopped punters backing the Venetia Williams-trained steeplechaser.  

Three French breds have won since 2009, the first of those was another representing 2009 winning trainer Venetia Williams and despite this being his first time over the National fences he is an experienced ten year old with five chase wins.

The former Cheltenham World Hurdle winner is one of the potential rides being considered by Gerraghty.

After tipping the 9-year-old to go close in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Jonjo O'Neill will be hoping he fares better at Aintree. 

Vicente - in to 20-1 from 33-1

Vicente has run four times this season without placing but the eight-year-old gelding appears to be a different horse in the Spring with four of his six wins coming between the end of March and the middle of May.

The 8-year-old won the Scottish National last year and trainer Paul Nicholls has been preparing the gelding for this year's Grand National at Aintree.
