GENERAL WOLFE, among the leading fancies for the Grand National at around 16-1 may miss the race. Tim Forster, his trainer, is awaiting the outcome of veterinary examinations on the Peter Marsh Chase winner.

Forster said yesterday: "General Wolfe has banged a leg or something. The vets will be looking at him in the next few days. Normally when a horse has leg trouble they are not able to run for a while but I will have no idea whether he will run at Aintree for a few days."

Challenger Du Luc and Call It A Day were heavily backed yesterday for Saturday's Racing Post Chase and Greenalls Grand National Trial respectively.

Challenger Du Luc has been cut to 9-4 favourite with Coral, William Hill and Ladbrokes, from a top-priced 7-2 with Coral, while Call It A Day is now 5-1 favourite with William Hill and Ladbrokes after starting the day at 8-1. Super Tactics is 7-2 from 7-1 with William Hill for the Racing Post Chase, while Land Afar is 9-2 from 7-1.
