"He is carrying less weight because he is not good enough to win.

"As long as the horse comes back in one piece, that is all I can really hope for. Anything more than that is a bonus.

"You can never say never in a National because it can be carnage so you always have a chance. If he runs well and finishes respectably, I'd be happy enough.
