112 Grand National 2010 Entries

The closing date for entering runners in the 2010 Grand National was Tuesday February 2nd and all 112 were declared today, the 3rd, with weights to be announced on February 16th 2010.

Excitement surrounds State of Play, the fourth place in 2009, who is going to go straight to the National without another run. The Evan Williams trained 10 year old has exceptionally good prospects, performs best when fresh and according to Williams “Is doing great”.

The list of entrants also includes three past winners who are the 2009 100/1 outsider Mon Mome, Comply Or Die who was victorious in 2008 and the 2007 winner Silver Birch.

Although the number of entries is lower than in previous years, there are actually more horses rated 140 or above among the entries in this year’s race than in the previous 11 years so the quality has really been stepped up which is no surprise given that the prize fund is £925,000.

From a trainers perspective, Willie Mullins has the largest number in the running with ten including Arbor Supreme, Snowy Morning and Irish Invader. David Pipe follows with nine entrants including Our Vic, Comply or Die and Seven Is My Number. Nigel Twiston-Davies has seven in contention with Paul Nicholls on five which includes two of the ante-post favourites in the form of Tricky Trickster and Big Fella Thanks.
