At the Monday declaration stage a total of 26 entries remain set for the annual renewal at Liverpool.
Sponsors Betfred make last year’s winner Hello Bud 12/1 alongside Always Waining, who has won the Topham Chase over the big fences for the past two years.
“This year’s renewal of the Becher has got the usual mix of horses with plenty of experience over the big fences and those with relatively few miles on the clock,” Betfred spokesman George Primarolo told betrescue.com
“Niche Market and Always Waining know exactly what it takes to jump round Aintree but the likes of Another Palm and Master Overseer are very interesting contenders for two of the shrewdest stables in the business.”
