1. IMPERIAL COMMANDER - 14/1
Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies, Jockey: Sam Twiston-Davies
Gold Cup winner in 2010 has returned to form this year. Top weight means money may go elsewhere.
2. WHAT A FRIEND - 40/1
Trainer: Paul Nicholls, Jockey: Sam Thomas
Has only fallen once in his career. Owned by Sir Alex Ferguson and trained by Paul Nicholls, who has pedigree in this race.
3. WEIRD AL - 50/1
Trainer: Donald McCain, Jockey: Timmy Murphy
Ran respectably in last year's National before falling at the 27th fence. Has suffered from injuries.
4. QUEL ESPRIT - 50/1
Trainer: W P Mullins
A grey who won last year's Irish Hennessey Gold Cup. Would prefer softer ground.
5. BIG FELLA THANKS - 33/1
Trainer: Tom George, Jockey: Denis O’Regan
Has finished in the top 10 three times. In good form but doubts about his staying power.
6. SEABASS - 8/1
Trainer: T M Walsh, Jockey: Katie Walsh
Katie Walsh came close to becoming the first female jockey to win last timeround. Extra weight might stop her triumphing again.
7. ROBERTO GOLDBACK - 33/1
Trainer: Nicky Henderson, Jockey: Barry Geraghty
Nick Henderson is set to be crowned champion trainer and would dearly love to win the big one. But unlikely with this hardy but unspectacular horse.
8. SUNNYHILLBOY - 12/1
Trainer: Jonjo O'Neill, Jockey: Richie McLernon
Pipped on the line by Neptunes Collonges last year. Carrying more weight this year but still widely fancied.
9. BALLABRIGGS - 20/1
Trainer: Donald McCain, Jockey: Jason Maguire
Won it in 2011 and sixth here last year. He's getting on a bit but, carrying less weight, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him back in the places.
10. TEAFORTHREE -16/1
Trainer: Rebecca Curtis, Jockey: Nick Scholfield
A great jumper who's adept on any ground. Second in the Welsh National - will hope to go one better over these fences for the first time.
11. ACROSS THE BAY -33/1
Trainer: Donald McCain, Jockey: Henry Brook
Another from the McCain stables. Is seen as a reliable stayer, without really being a contender.
12. JOIN TOGETHER - 16/1
Trainer: Paul Nicholls, Jockey: Daryl Jaco
Finished second over these fences in December. Expected to stay the distance.
13. COLBERT STATION - 10/1
Trainer: Ted Walsh IRE, Jockey: A P McCoy
A winning combination of AP McCoy in the saddle and the ownership of JP McManus. But doubts over experience and stamina.
14. FORPADYDEPLASTERER - 66/1
Trainer: Thomas Cooper IRE, Jockey: Andrew JMcNamara
Winning jumper over shorter distances. Consistent but unproved in a race of this length.
15. ON HIS OWN -6/1
Trainer: Willie Mullins IRE, Jockey: Ruby Walsh
Popular with the early punters. Ridden by Ruby Walsh and going well when he fell last year.
16. JONCOL - 50/1
Trainer: Paul Nolan IRE, Jockey: Robbie Power
Won the Irish Hennessey in 2010. Form has fallen away but ground should suit him.
17. BALTHAZAR KING - 25/1
Trainer: Philip Hobb, Jockey: Richard Johnson
Fancied by many for a place on first time at the National. The ground could suit him if it doesn't rain.
18. CAPPA BLEU - 10/1
Trainer: Evan Williams, Jockey: Paul Moloney
Finished strongly for a fourth place last year. Third in the Welsh National and well handicapped. A good chance.
19. OSCAR TIME - 50/1
Trainer: Martin Lynch IRE, Jockey: Sam Waley-Cohen
Runner-up two years ago but form has dropped off. Unlikely to win any gongs this time.
20. ALWAYS WAINING - 40/1
Trainer: Peter Bowen, Jockey: Tom O’Brien
Probably the most experienced horse in the race but a debutant over these fences. Doubts about the distance.
21. TATENEN - 66/1
Trainer: Richard Rowe, Jockey: Andrew Thornton
Unseated his rider at the eighth last year. Not fancied to do much better this.
22. TREACLE - 33/1
Trainer: Tom Taaffe IRE, Jockey: Andrew Lynch
Fell at the 10th last year. A lower weight this time but still a long shot.
23. LOST GLORY - 50/1
Trainer: Jonjo O'Neill, Jockey: Mark Walsh
New Zealand-bred. Won four times last year and could be a good value each-way bet.
24. SWING BILL - 66/1
Trainer: David Pipe, Jockey: Conor O’Farrell
Another grey who finished 10th in 2012. No chance of making it back-to-back grey winners this year.
25. SAINT ARE - 50/1
Trainer: Tim Vaughan, Jockey: Dougie Costello
Better on good ground. Prone to hit fences, particularly if there's any give in the turf.
26. CHICAGO GREY - 14/1
Trainer: Gordon Elliott IRE, Jockey: Paul Carberry or Davy Condon
Not at fault when brought down at the 5th last year. Improving and well-fancied.
27. QUISCOVER FONTAINE - 50/1
Trainer: Willie Mullins IRE, Jockey: David Casey
Fell at the 17th while going well last year. Could go better this at similar odds.
28. RARE BOB - 25/1
Trainer: Dessie Hughes IRE, Jockey: Bryan Cooper
Lots of early money on this experienced campaigner. Would need softer ground to be a real contender.
29. THE RAINBOW HUNTER - 66/1
Trainer: Kim Bailey, Jockey: Aidan Coleman
Not the best jumper but good stamina makes an interesting outsider.
30. BECAUSEICOULDNTSEE - 100/1
Trainer: Noel Glynn IRE, Jockey: Martin Ferris
Not made it past the 9th in the last two nationals despite being well-fancied. Unlikely to receive the same backing again.
31. HARRY THE VIKING - 40/1
Trainer: Paul Nicholls, Jockey: Ryan Mahon
Another Sir Alex Ferguson horse. Lacks the experience and knowhow of his owner despite a promising start to his career.
32. MR MOONSHINE - 66/1
Trainer: Sue Smith, Jockey: Peter Buchanan
Not won since 2011 and lacks staying power. Not likely to bother the places.
33. MUMBLES HEAD - 100/1
Trainer: Peter Bowen, Jockey: Jamie Moore
In great form last year but fell at the first in the Becher's Chase here in December. Not been seen since.
34. NINETIETH MINUTE - 66/1
Trainer: Tom Taaffe IRE, Jockey: Niall Madden
Better over hurdles than fences. Not fancied to last the distance.
35. AURORAS ENCORE - 66/1
Trainer: Sue Smith, Jockey: Ryan Mania
Runner-up in last year's Scottish National. But that was seen as a one-off and form has tailed off.
36. TARQUINIUS - 100/1
Trainer: Gordon Elliott IRE, Jockey: Wilson Renwick
Better over soft ground. Might finish but unlikely to bother the bookies.
37. ANY CURRENCY - 66/1
Trainer: Martin Keighley, Jockey: Ian Popham
Good stamina and a solid jumper. However, lacks the calibre for a race of this quality.
38. MAJOR MALARKEY - 100/1
Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies, Jockey: Tom Scudamore
Good stamina but a tendency to pull-up. Not an attractive prospect.
39. SOLL - 40/1
Trainer: Jo Hughes, Jockey: Mark Grant
Huge, handsome horse who prefers soft ground. Relatively inexperienced but an interesting outsider.
40. VIKING BLOND - 66/1
Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies, Jockey: Adam Wedge
Fell at the first last year. Might get further this time but unlikely to be much further with his form.
