Kim Muir Trends Analysis
Trainers that have a good record in this race are Nicky Henderson (three winners since 1990), Donald McCain (wins in 2007 and 2010) and David Pipe who had first and second in this race in 2011 and second in 2010.
This race tends to go to a handicap chaser who has learnt enough to keep his amateur pilot out of trouble but hasn't got to the point where his handicap mark has become overexposed.
None of the last ten winners had more than nineteen races over fences.
Horses who have had between five and eleven chase outings have won the last eight renewals of this race.

Kim Muir PreviewThe Kim Muir seems to becoming the Grand National stepping stone
with 2010 winner Balllabriggs 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?
