ANY Second Now is co-favourite at 16-1 for the Randox Grand National after he was allotted 11st 2 lbs when the weights were announced earlier this week.

The Ted Walsh-trained 10-year-old was unlucky in the 2021 National when badly hampered by a faller and relegated to the rear of the field. Yet he ran really well to get back into the race and improve his position to be close to the leaders at the top of the straight, finishing fast to secure third place behind winner Minella Times.

But Walsh is concerned his charge could be forced to carry even more weight if the current top-weights don’t run, which would necessitate the weights being raised.

“I knew he was going to get a few pounds more as he was third in the National last year,” Walsh said. “He was a bit unlucky then – whether he’d have beaten the winner I’m not sure but he’d definitely have been closer.

“Of course I’d always be happier with less weight and I’d be happier with less than 11 stone but it is what it is.

“The only problem is if the top weights don’t run and we end up around 11st 6lb or 11st 7lb – that would be tough.

“If he’s back to the form of last year and takes the place again he’ll still run a big race, but I’d say he has it all to do now at the weights. He might run next weekend in the Red Mills at Gowran Park. Either that or we’ll go to Naas or Fairyhouse after that.

“He won over two miles last year and the year before and he’ll run over either two miles or two and a half miles before Aintree.”
In other news Tiger Roll’s owner, Michael O’Leary, said the 2018 and 2019 Grand National winner – who has been allotted 11st 4lbs – will not run as he believes it is too much weight.
