This is the big one, la creme de la creme of jumps racing in
Scotland, Coral Scottish Grand National Saturday.

as Mr & Mrs Raymond Anderson Green attempt to win the race with
Rival D'Estruval and capture the fampous trophy for the third time
in four years.
The Greens grand old chaser Merigo won in 2010 and 2012 and was
second in 2011 but was retired less than three weeks before this
But there will be some tough competition with all first five
home at Aintree including the winner Rival D'Estruval entered.
A massive crowd of around 18,000 will flock to the course and
the atmosphere is truly electric and in addition to the feature
race there are some superb supporting contests.
These include the QTS Scottish Champion Hurdle over two miles
which always attracts a healthy number of quality horses from the
UK and Ireland.
And for the first time this year there is a Listed Race on the
card, the Scotty Brand Handicap Chase while the Arcadia Consulting
William Dickie and Mary Robertson Future Champion Chase is another
mouth watering contest.
There is also the £60,000 Class 2 Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance
Novices' Handicap Chase over 3 miles 1 furlong and the £30,000 DBS
Spring Sales Bumper so all in all a mouth watering feast of
Following racing top band Northern Star play for three hours in
the Horseshoe Bar with a disco in the Ayrshire Suite.
