Synchronised heads the 48 remaining entries for Saturday's John Smith's Grand National at Aintree.

Jonjo O'Neill's Gold Cup winner will bid to become the first horse to lift that Cheltenham crown and follow up in the National since the legendary Golden Miller, as long as he comes throughout his final piece of work unscathed.

O'Neill has left in another of his Festival winners in Kim Muir winner victor Sunnyhillboy, as well as Arbour Supreme.

Last year's winner Ballabriggs is one of two big chances for Donald McCain, who also runs Weird Al.

Despite the absence of Quel Esprit, Apt Approach and one-time favourite Prince De Beauchene, Willie Mullins still has a strong team, led by On His Own, the mount of Ruby Walsh. The Midnight Club and Quiscover Fontaine could also run for Mullins.

Junior, Seabass, Chicago Grey, Treacle and Organisedconfusion are among the others all still in the mix.

As expected, Burton Port and Midnight Chase were taken out.
