The weights were unveiled for the 2023 Grand National at a ceremony in Aintree on Tuesday afternoon.

Emmet Mullins intends on sending last year's winner, Noble Yeats back to Aintree following a run in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The British handicapper had decided that Noble Yeats should be rated 19 pounds higher than last year, meaning he'll have to shoulder 11-11 if he does return to the Grand National in April.

Two-time placer, Any Second Now has been rated eight pounds better by the handicapper and he's one of three Irish raiders who'll have to carry a top weight of 11-12. Galway Plate winner Hewick has been rated 167, as well as two-time Grade One winner Conflated, who's been judged one pound inferior to his Irish mark of 168.

Conflated's trainer, Gordon Elliott accounts for seven of the current top 40 in the Grand National weights. Galvin will have to carry 11-11, with Delta Work (11-4), Escaria Ten (10-10) and Farclas (10-10) also set to represent the three-time Grand National winner.

Willie Mullins' assault could be spearheaded by Grade One winner Gaillard Du Mesnil, who would carry a decent weight of 11-00. Classic Chase runner-up, Mr Incredible (10-4) has been well-backed since the weights were revealed. Mullins' seven-year-old would need ten of the top 40 to pull out in order to get a run.

Reigning Ultima winner, Corach Rambler will head back to the Cheltenham Festival before having a crack at the Grand National and Lucinda Russell's star has been handed a weight of just 10-5. The second-highest placed home runner in the betting is Dan Skelton's Le Milos (152), who's received a six-pound hike in the weights following his victory in the Coral Gold Cup.

Longhouse Poet (11-00) has been rated the same as when sixth 12 months ago. Henry De Bromhead's Ain't That A Shame (10-5) sits just one place outside the top 40 runners, after stablemate and 2021 Grand National winner, Minella Times was retired on Monday.
