It is very tough to oppose POSTMASTER for Tim Vaughan despite having pulled up in the John Smith's Grand National at Aintree latest. That was no disgrace and the 137-rated gelding should have the beating of these if anything close to the form that saw him score in a similar race at Ludlow over 2m4f two starts ago and a Class 3 handicap chase at Bangor the time before. Start Royal boasts winning course form and is feared most despite having something to find on official figures, while Horner Woods is another interesting contender at a big price.
