Top weight Outlander has been ruled out of the Grand National at Aintree by trainer Gordon Elliott.

The nine-year-old was handed 11st 10lb for the world-famous steeplechase, but Elliott says the Cheltenham Gold Cup contender will not run on 8 April.

Elliott boasts the most entries at 14, with Irish Gold Cup runner-up Empire Of Dirt and Don Poli also among the top four weights for the race.
