Many Clouds on National entry list

Many Clouds and jockey Leighton Aspell

Many Clouds gave jockey Leighton Aspell a second successive Grand National success last year

Last year’s winner Many Clouds is among 126 horses to enter the 2016 Grand National, to run at Aintree on 9 April.

The 2014 winner Pineau De Re – which, like Many Clouds, was ridden to victory by Leighton Aspell – features in the largest list of entries since 2008.

Four of the top five horses from last year’s race have also entered – but Monbeg Dude, who finished third, will not have recovered from injury in time.

A maximum field of 40 will be selected to start the Liverpool race.
