Grand National Pointers

Silviniaco Conti and Bishops Road highlighted their chances for the Crabbie’s Grand National, with William Hill cutting the pair after they won at Ascot and Haydock respectively.


Silviniaco Conti is 16-1 second-favourite from 25-1 for the Grand National after winning the Ascot Chase and Bishops Road is 25-1 from 50-1 for the Aintree feature after landing the Grand National Trial.


“Silviniaco Conti looks like he could be ready-made for the Grand National, while Kerry Lee has had such a good season you could not rule out Bishops Road,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
