Top-weight Minella Rocco has been declared a non-runner, on account of the soft ground, in tomorrow’s Randox Health Grand National at Aintree.

Jonjo O'Neill's charge filled the runner-up spot in last year's Cheltenham Gold Cup and pulled out of this year's renewal on the morning of the race due to the testing conditions at Prestbury Park.

The seven year old grey Baie Des Iles  has been the subject of a huge pre Grand National gamble to give Katie Walsh a place in history as the first female jockey to ride the winner of tomorrow’s race.

The mare is trained by her husband Ross O'Sullivan

Katie's father Ted and brother Ruby won the race with Papillon in 2000..

She has come the closest of any lady rider to Aintree glory, when third on Seabass.

There's a seven-race card at Naas from 1.35.
