Don’t Push It tops declarations

HORSE RACING: Grand National winner Don’t Push It heads 74 entries for this years race at Aintree on 9 April.

Jonjo O'Neill’s 11-year-old gave multiple champion jockey Tony McCoy an emotional first success in the world’s most famous steeplechase last year, but will be forced to concede weight all round to his rivals this time. The early favourite is the Willie Mullins-trained The Midnight Club, while Oscar Time will bid to give Robert and Sam Waley-Cohen a huge double following last week’s Gold Cup success of Long Run.
