The 40 declared runners for the Crabbies Grand National at Aintree on Saturday have stood their ground

There were no withdrawals before the Friday 1pm cut-off point.

That means none of the four reserves will get into the big race, among them Bishops Road, who is owned by Lytham businessman Alan Halsall.

Bishops Road is a runner in this afternoon's Topham Chase over a circuit of the National fences.
