Junior new top weight in Scottish Grand National
JUNIOR, who fell at the second fence in the John Smith's Grand National on Saturday, heads the weights for the Coral-sponsored Scottish equivalent following Monday's forfeit stage.
Original top-weight Burton Port, Midnight Chase and Ballabriggs were not among the confirmations for Saturday's race at Ayr.
West End Rocker, who fell at the same fence as Junior in the National, was among the 35 possibles for the race.
Ante-post favourite Harry The Viking also remains engaged and could bid to give trainer Paul Nicholls a National double after the success of Neptune Collongesat Aintree.
Any Currency, who as first reserve missed the Grand National, could run in the race.
His trainer Martin Keighley said: "He's in great form and he'll love the trip. He was the first reserve for Aintree but obviously this is not a bad consolation. He definitely has a live each-way chance."
