The 2020 Scottish Grand National will attract a stellar field for the Ayr marathon, which sees a host of stamina-laden performers bid for glory in what is one of the highlights of the National Hunt calendar in April.

Takingrisks was a superb winner of the 2019 Scottish Grand National, as the Nicky Richards-trained raider fought off Crosspark to claim victory in the Ayr showpiece.  Cloth Cap ran a fine race to finish fourth, but it was the 25/1 shot Takingrisks that bagged the coveted trophy.
