BBC Sport meets Rebecca Curtis, the trainer of Grand National favourite Teaforthree.

Curtis jokes with BBC Wales reporter Claire Summers that the horse has become "cocky" as he "knows he's a bit famous now".

Last year's third-placed horse Teaforthree is the current favourite ahead of Monbeg Dude, who is part-owned by former England rugby union captain Mike Tindall, team-mate James Simpson-Daniel and Welsh fly-half Nicky Robinson, and Long Run, the Nicky Henderson-trained dual King George VI Chase winner.
