Grand National Weights: King George VI winner Hewick receives top weight

The Grand National weights have been announced, with King George VI winner Hewick receiving top weight of 11st 12lb.

Horse Racing

In 2002, the top weight was set at 11st 12lbs, lowered two pounds in 2009 to 11st 10lbs, though Hewick will carry 11st 12lbs this year.

No horse has won the Grand National carrying top weight since Red Rum in 1974 on the back of his victory the year previous, and trainer John Hanlon admitted his charge 'probably deserves' top weight after his Kempton success on Boxing Day.

2023 winner Corach Rambler will carry an extra 11 pounds this time round with 11st 2lbs, while 2022 winner Noble Yeats carries the third highest weight with 11st 8lbs, having been given 10st 10lbs two years ago, and 11st 11lbs last year.

The lowest-rated horses at 130 - Minella Trump and Full Back - carry the lowest weight of 9st 1lb, while Battleoverdoyen, Fakiera, Its On The Line, Placenet, Royal Thief, So Des Flos all failed to qualify.

87 horses have been entered, but in an attempt to improve the race's safety, that will be reduced from the traditional 40 to 34 this year.

Vanillier is the 11/1 favourite on the back of the weights being released, goes up two pounds from his second-place finish last year, when he carried 10st 6lbs.
