Racing: Another National for Ness

Click to follow
ESHA NESS, first home in the void Martell Grand National, will bid for consolation when he lines up in the Scottish National at Ayr on Saturday.

The horse was one of 31 acceptors for the four mile one furlong contest. John White is again expected to take the ride.

Coral installed Dakyns Boy, from last year's winning stable of Nigel Twiston-Davies, as their market leader at 11-2.

But William Hill made top-weight Run For Free and the 1992 Aintree winner, Party Politics, joint favourites at 6-1, with Dakyns Boy one point longer.
