Grand National at Aintree: Every horse rated

SYNCHRONISED (Trainer, Jonjo O'Neill) No horse has won this great race after lifting the Cheltenham Gold Cup since Golden Miller in 1934, though Garrison Savannah went close in 1991. However, unlike most Gold Cup winners, Synchronised has already proven his liking for a serious test of stamina by winning the Welsh and Midlands Nationals. He has his own way of jumping but provided he takes to the place, he looks certain to make his presence felt. Ground looks ideal and 7lb well-in at the weights. Rating 10 (out of 10).

We profile every runner in tomorrow's big race at Aintree.
