Elliott’s Cause Of Causes Joint Scottish National Favourite

Gordon Elliott’s Kim Muir winner Cause Of Causes, who missed the cut for the Aintree Grand National, currently heads Saturday’s Scottish Grand National field at 8/1 alongside the Willie Mullins trained Measureofmydreams.

The Paul Nicholls trained Southfield Theatre who was brought down in the Grade 3 Ultima Handicap Chase at Cheltenham is next in the betting at 10/1 with Sandy Thomson’s Seeyouatmidnight who finished seventh in the RSA chase next in the betting at 14/1.

Al Co won the race in 2014 is 16/1 to land a second Scottish Grand National whilst 2014 Aintree Grand National winner Pineau De Re is priced at 20/1 to lands the spoils.

However, at present, Cause of Causes isn’t the worst result for the firm as the Willie Mullins Measureofmydreams has already had his supporters having caught punters eyes when finishing third in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham. Our traders are keen to keep him on side as having initially been installed at 16/1 just over a week ago

he now is at the top of the betting alongside Cause Of Causes and may well edge clear favouritism sooner rather than later.
