Final weights and favourites have been confirmed for this year's Scottish Grand National at Ayr Racecourse.

Scottish owned Galvin has been allocated top-weight of 12-0 for this year's running of the Coral Scottish Grand National on Saturday, April 22 however Ronnie Bartlett's recent Cheltenham Cross Country runner-up is also an intended runner in this weekend's Grand National at Aintree.

The sponsors' ante-post favourite Kitty's Light (Christian Williams) is down to carry 10-8 before any probable weights rise, with the seven year-old looking to go one place better than last year's second behind now retired stable companion Win My Wings.

Sandy Thomson's recent Kelso winner Empire Steel is a 14/1 chance off a current weight of 10-13 with stable companion Flower Of Scotland (12/1) possibly struggling to get a run off his current 9-4.

Lucinda Russell's 11/1 second favourite with the sponsors, Your Own Story, has been handed 9-9 with the weights almost certain to rise and bring the 7 year-old into the handicap proper, while recent Ulster National winner Malina Girl has been allocated a handy looking 10-5.
