Premier Bond heads betting to win Scottish Grand National
The Nicky Henderson-trained Premier Bond is the sponsor’s 9-1 favourite following the final declarations for the Coral Scottish Grand National today. Victory in the £210,000 contest would seal the trainers’ championship for Henderson, but his rival Paul Nicholls does send out Arpege D’Alene and last year’s winner Vicente, who along with Southfield Royale are the 10-1 co-second favourites.
“Vicente’s victory in the race twelve months ago gave Paul Nicholls the upper hand in his title battle with Willie Mullins, and the reigning champion looks to have another excellent chance of winning Scotland’s richest race this time around, although success for Premier Bond would wrap up this season’s title in Nicky Henderson’s favour,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
