Key withdrawals from John Smith’s Grand National

Midnight Chase and Synchronised are the most notable absentees following the confirmation stage for the John Smith’s Grand National at Aintree on Saturday.

Welsh National winner Synchronised was last seen finishing third in the Midlands equivalent at Uttoxeter, while Cheltenham Gold Cup fifth Midnight Chase is instead likely to take his chance in Thursday’s totesport Bowl.

Last year’s National hero Don’t Push It heads 65 remaining entries, with Scotsirish, Notre Pere, Ballytrim and Nedzer’s Return the other horses who were in the race proper to have been withdrawn
