With so many fences and so much running – not to mention a massive number of jostling horses – the Grand National is famously hard to predict. On the other hand long odds winners are a genuine possibility and the race has seen plenty of unfancied triumphs over the years.
With odds of 11/1 the current favourite is Teaforthree who looks well equipped for the Aintree fences after a strong third place last year and some convincing runs since. The 10-year-old weights 5lb less than last year and jumps well enough to look a convincing favourite.
Second favourite with William Hill is Tidal Bay, a veteran thirteen-year-old given a good chance by the handicapper with a mark 7lb short of his official rating. Should Tidal Bay put that advantage to best use he would become the oldest winner since 1923.
Two-time National favourite On His Own (20/1 with William Hill) showed promise in 2012 before falling at Beechers but lacked the same fizz last year, tailing off disappointingly before falling at Valentines. Trainer Willie Mullins remains confident in the horse however and perhaps it will be a case of third time lucky for the 10-year-old.
Also priced at 20/1 with William Hill are two Nicky Henderson trained horses – Hennessy Gold Cup winner Triolo D’Alene and former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run. The former surprised many by winning the Hennessy at Newbury and looks a decent horse, question marks remain over his stamina and suitability for Aintree however. Long Run meanwhile boasts an impressive and storied career that includes a Cheltenham Gold Cup win, two King Georges and over one and a half million pounds in prize money. He hasn’t looked like a good fit for the fences of Aintree in the past but Henderson claims his jumping is much improved these days.
