Paul Nicholls is looking to win back-to-back Coral Scottish Grand National’s and trains four of the 40 horses left remaining in the race at Ayr on Saturday, including Vicente.

LAST YEAR’S winner Vicente and 2014 hero Al Co are among 40 horses left in the Coral Scottish Grand National at Ayr on Saturday following the five-day confirmation stage.

The Paul Nicholls-trained Vicente is on a retrieval mission after only getting as far as the first fence in the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree. Nicholls can also call on the well-fancied Arpege d’Alene, Vivaldi Collonges and Virak.


Peter Bowen’s Al Co also has to bounce back from being pulled up on his latest start at Newbury last month. His trainer has a second string to his bow in Buachaill Alainn.
