Merigo, a former winner, is 9/1 jt second fav along with Portrait King, ahead of Ikorodu Road and Knockara Beau at 10/1.
“Trainer Paul Nicholls enjoyed success in the biggest National of them all on Saturday, and we make Harry The Viking clear favourite to give the stable further big race success this weekend,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
“However opposition to the favourite, co-owned by Sir Alex Ferguson, is headed by the 2010 winner and last year’s runner-up, Merigo, and Portrait King, who proved his liking for a marathon trip with his Eider Chase victory,” added Stevens.
