Grand National: Favourite Synchronised leads maximum field

Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Synchronised heads a field of 40 runners for Saturday's Grand National at Aintree.

Champion jockey Tony McCoy will be on board as the horse tries to become the first in 78 years to complete the big-race double in the same season.

Katie Walsh on Seabass and Nina Carberry with Organisedconfusion are also seeking to make history - by becoming the first woman winner.

Around 70,000 fans are expected and the going is good, good to soft in places.
