... Rough Trade's Grand National picks:
NICHE MARKET (IRE)
Former Irish Grand National winner. Owned by larger-than-life Dubliner Graham Regan. Boasts some excellent form in top races, including second in the Aon Chase and a Hennessy third. Jockey is son of showjumper Nick Skelton, and the young rider's brother Dan, who is assistant to the trainer, celebrates his birthday on Grand National day.
And for the boys and girls at Talbot Rd...
WEST END ROCKER (IRE)
This horse was barely on my radar until Monday night when I had a dream. I rarely remember my dreams, but this one was crystal clear. The winner of the Grand National was West End Rocker. People said I was off my rocker when I told them, but has an outside squeak based on two fine wins earlier in the season.
