Any Currency has a rating of 134 over fences and last ran in the Grand National at Aintree. He's won three times over the larger obstacles and been placed five times over hurdles so has to go on the short-list here getting 6lb from SILVER EAGLE. Kim Bailey's grey is still unexposed, however, and fancied to follow up his Wetherby victory. Letemgo was third at Wincanton last time and also has a bit of scope but the mare Wishes And Stars tries a new trip and never seems to run the same race twice in a row.
