Grand National Odds

The Grand National is the race that catches the imagination like no other. People who would never usually be found betting on horse racing get caught up in the excitement of this fascinating National Hunt steeplechase and suddenly start checking the latest odds in the hope of picking a winner.

Run over a mammoth distance of four miles, three furlongs and 110 yards, and with 30 fences to negotiate around two circuits of the Aintree course, the Grand National is a supreme test of skill and stamina. But how do you pick a winner? Well, with difficulty.

Notoriously problematic to assess, the National can be a great race in which to back horses at long odds in the hope they will ‘do a Mon Mome’ (the 100/1 winner of 2009). Last year’s winner, Neptune Collonges, also had very attractive odds at 33/1. Generally though – including in seven of the last 10 – the winner has been priced at 16/1 or shorter.

Leading the betting at the moment is the Willie Mullins-trained nine-year-old On His Own, who is available at best odds of 9/1 with Sportingbet. He fell in last year’s race and could be a bit on the short side for us. We prefer another from the Mullins stable, Prince De Beauchene. Priced at longer odds of 12/1 with Paddy Power, the French 10-year-old has been well-fancied in the betting in recent weeks.

While the Grand National is as close to a lottery as horse racing gets, it is certainly a good race for backing long-odds outsiders each way. Our tip in that category is the Jonjo O’Neill-trained Lost Glory. The eight-year-old has won six of his last nine races, carrying over 11 stone each time. With a favourable handicap of 10-8 here, he looks great value at odds of 100/1 with Sportingbet.
