The Coral Scottish Grand National Handicap Chase sees horses race the course around Ayr over 4m.

The Grade 3 Pursuit is an excellent precursor to the Grand National which begins on Saturday 9th April.

There are some familiar faces in Ayr’s pursuit too, with many who opted for last year’s renewal trying their luck again this weekend.

One that certainly catches the eye is the one ridden by former Grand National winner, Ryan Mania.

Scottish Grand National Council: The Ferry Master at 10/1

Mania won in 2013 in a huge lap aboard Auroras Encore and is used to the difficulties that cross the fences of this type of steeple racing.

Last year, The Ferry Master placed fourth on good ground a few lengths behind Mighty Thunder.

But since then the 9-year-old has had wind surgery and finished respectably on various trips to Newcastle and Wetherby.

Earlier this month the horse trained by Sandy Thomson had his first race since wind surgery and was only beaten in the neck in a Class 3 pursuit.

It’s also appealing considering he’s also five pounds lighter since finishing fourth at Ayr last year.

It looks like it will also be the same, well, which is another checkbox for this profile at a surprisingly high 10/1, giving great value on a one-sided bet.
