Suny Bay is the new Martell Grand National favourite at 16-1 (from 20-1) with Coral following yesterday's removal of Lord Gyllene from the betting.

Lord Gyllene, winner of last April's National, has a minor leg injury and his trainer Steve Brookshaw speculated yesterday that the horse could be out until next season. "It would be a shame to risk everything this year. We have to be certain everything is right before he does run," Brookshaw said.
