Kim Muir PreviewThe Kim Muir seems to becoming the Grand National stepping stone with 2010 winner Ballabriggs going on to Aintree glory and the 2012 winner Sunnyhillboy losing out in the National by a whisker.
Ireland had not won this race since 1983 until last year but they managed 1st, 2nd and 4th in 2014 so perhaps the tide is changing?
