“I intend to run him [Hewick] in the Grand National. Everyone is asking me today if he’ll run, I hope they’re talking to me after the race too!”

With just seven weeks to go until the crowds descend on the Liverpool track, Galvin has been an early mover after the weights were revealed and has been backed into 25/1 from 33/1 after being allotted 10st 12lbs as support surges for Gordon Elliott to have another Grand National winner.

Brian O’Keeffe. spokesperson for BoyleSports, said:

“Vanillier heads the betting for this year’s Aintree Grand National with Gavin Cromwell hoping to have another successful raiding party across the Irish Sea this season. While some punters have latched onto Galvin, many are hoping Vanillier can go one better than last year.”
