The first scratching deadline was yesterday and today the Jockey Club announced that 89 potential runners are still in contention for the 2020 Grand National.

The biggest name to get withdrawn is Delta Work. The Gordon Elliott trained seven-year-old received joint top weight alongside stablemate Tiger Roll but is a certainty for the Cheltenham Gold Cup and will be swerving the National. Elliott still has 15 entries left in the mix.

Withdrawn Horses At First Scratching Stage

There have been 16 withdrawals at this stage. They include the likes of Native River who is now injured and Cadmium who hadn’t qualified for entry. Here are all horses who are no longer going to participate in the 2020 Grand National:

  • Acting Lass
  • As de Mee
  • Cadmium
  • Champagne Classic
  • Chris’s Dream
  • Delta Work
  • Heron Heights
  • Missed Approach
  • Mister Whitaker
  • Native River
  • Noble Endeavor
  • Princeton Royale
  • Sizing John
  • Steely Addition
  • Voix du Reve
  • Yorkhill

Still in the mix is last year’s runner up, Magic Of Light. Despite a relatively disappointing run in the recent Boyne Hurdle, trainer Jessica Harrington is still optimistic.

She said: “Magic Of Light is in good form. She wasn’t as slick at her hurdles in Navan, but I think the ground was just too heavy for her.

“The Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham was an option, but the race looks very competitive. She would have been taking on two talented mares in Benie des Dieux and Honeysuckle if they run. With that in mind, she will go straight to Aintree.

“She has a nice weight for Aintree and we are looking forward to taking her back there.”

Of course with Delta Work getting withdrawn, every remaining horse now has a number change. It also means that a fresh batch of runners enter the mix and have officially made the cut. They include Ramses De Teillee from trainer David Pipe, Double Shuffle from Tom George and Kimberlite Candy from Tom Lacey. Saint Xavier, Valtor, Walk In The Mill and Warriors Tale are also guaranteed a spot.

A maximum of 40 runners can line up for the 2020 Randox Health Grand National, with the next scratchings stage on Tuesday, 17 March.
