ENTRIES for this year's Scottish Grand National at Ayr Racecourse have been confirmed.

No fewer than 60 horses have been entered for this year's race, sponsored by Coral, which is to be run for the 57th time at Ayr Racecourse on Saturday, April 22.

The £200,000 feature race, run over nearly four miles, has attracted a high quality entry which includes last year's runner-up Kitty's Light (Christian Williams), the current Aintree Grand National favourite Corach Rambler (Lucinda Russell), this season's Coral Gold Cup winner at Newbury Le Milos (Dan Skelton) and last month's Cheltenham Cross Country Chase runner-up Galvin (Gordon Elliott).

There are nine home-trained entries from the Scottish yards of Lucinda Russell, Sandy Thomson, Nick Alexander, Stuart Coltherd and Iain Jardine - with 16 of the 60 possibles trained in Ireland.

This year's £75,000 Coral Scottish Champion Hurdle, to be run on the same day, has attracted another quality entry of 45 horses, including the 2022 winner Anna Bunina, trained by John McConnell, as well as Nigel Twiston-Davies' 157-rated I Like To Move It and Nicky Henderson's 150-rated First Street.

Coral spokesman David Stevens said: "The Coral Scottish Grand National is back in its usual place in the calendar post-Aintree, and while other horses have the Grand National as their main target, the Eider winner Kitty's Light is very much on course for Ayr after finishing second last year."
