3 pts win HENRI PARRY MORGAN  25/1 ( Generally available)
Scottish Grand National

Two years have passed since this one arrived at Aintree for the big staying novice chase on the back of two facile successes in handicaps, and there was no fluke in him splitting Native River and Blaklion on that. Unfortunately he hasn't gone on from there. An overall disappointing 16/17 with a poor run in this event, and some poor runs this season at a time when he needed a return to something near his best for his rating to get high enough to get in the Grand National. Then, three weeks ago  they stuck blinkers on him at Ffos Los ( had tried a visor once before) and the response was a pleasing success in what was a good handicap. On weights and measures he has claims here and is worth chancing at the odds available.
