Many Clouds

Many Clouds

The 2016 Grand National winner and current favourite for the 2016 renewal (at 8/1 with Bet365 and others), Many Clouds is likely to take some beating on last year’s evidence. He carried 11-9 in weight last year, the most of any winner since Red Rum in 1974, and the victory was the second National win in a row for jockey Leighton Aspell.
An easy win at Kelso last time out in March suggests Many Clouds is bang in form again just at the right time, and though betting odds of just 8/1 are short for any horse in the Grand National, there is no doubt Many Clouds has a great chance of making it back to back wins in this great and fascinating race.

The Last Samurai

The Last Samurai

Kim Bailey’s Irish eight year old The Last Samurai has been attracting a lot of interest in recent months, and for good reason. With five wins and two placed finishes from his last eight races and eight wins in total from 14 runs, this hardy stayer got the better of The Druids Nephew last time out at Doncaster by some 10 lengths.
Available to back at best betting odds of 12/1 with Coral and others, The Last Samurai has the poise and jumping ability to make it round the Aintree course and the stamina to be there or thereabouts at the finish. Questions might arise based on his disappointing ninth place in his only other run at Aintree, but more recently his form has been very good indeed.

Silviniaco Conti

Silviniaco Conti

French 10 year old Silviniaco Conti looked set for true greatness when running to impressive back to back King George VI victories at Kempton in 2013 and 2014. He was well backed to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2013, 2014 and 2015, but he never quite managed to challenge, falling in 2013, finishing fourth in 2014 and ending in a disappointing seventh spot in 2015.
Trainer Paul Nicholls has therefore decided this fine horse might just earn his place in history over the fences at Aintree in the Grand National. Whether Silviniaco Conti has the staying ability to last out the race remains to be seen, but at betting odds of 12/1 with Ladbrokes he is sure to prove popular with the punters.

Holywell

Holywell

Jonjo O’Neill’s nine year old Holywell could be seen by many of the value pick of the 2016 Grand National at nice betting odds of 16/1 with Coral. He looked good when running in second in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival this year when carrying a hefty 11-12, and given that his handicap for the National is a full stone less, he could be in for a very good ride.
Add to that the fact that he won the Mildmay Novices’ Chase at Aintree in 2014, beating none other than the recent Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Don Cossack by an impressive 10 lengths, with 2015 National winner Many Clouds even further back. In short, on his day, Holywell can take on (and beat) the best of them.

The Druids Nephew

The Druids Nephew

Trained by Neil Mulholland, the finest moment in the career of The Druids Nephew came with his victory in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival. He could well have challenged Many Clouds for the win in last year’s Grand National as he was travelling well and competing with the leaders when he fell with six fences to go.
He hasn’t done much in his three races since his Aintree disappointment, and – as mentioned – he was well beaten by The Last Samurai last time out. But he certainly looks like a very solid each way bet at 16/1 with Betfair and others given that he was so close to making it round last year’s race and that he has the requisite staying power to compete.

Saint Are

Saint Are

French 10 year old Saint Are was second to Many Clouds in last year’s Aintree Grand National by a margin of less than two lengths. He stayed on well to challenge the eventual winner, and some pundits are suggesting he might go one better this year.
2015 was his second attempt at the National – he came ninth in 2013 – and he has had a good number of races at Aintree (including his victories in the 2011 Sefton Novices’ Chase and the 2012 John Smith’s Handicap Chase). With a good familiarity with the Aintree course, a solid record in the Grand National and stamina to burn, Saint Are could be the dark horse of the 2016 renewal at betting odds of 25/1 with Ladbrokes.

Shutthefrontdoor

Shutthefrontdoor

Nine year old Shutthefrontdoor promised much in the early days of his career, winning seven of his first nine races and placing fourth in the Pertemps Final at the 2013 Cheltenham Festival (a race that was won by Holywell).
He continued to impress, winning the Irish Grand National in 2014, and then he managed a very decent fifth place in the Aintree Grand National last year. Had he not faded in the final couple of hundred yards, Shutthefrontdoor might well have grabbed third place in the National in 2015, and on that basis he might be worth considering as an each way punt at very reasonable betting odds of 25/1 with William Hill.

Gallant Oscar

Gallant Oscar

Gallant Oscar – the JP McManus-owned 10 year old – is priced at best betting odds of 20/1 with Bet365, which is sure to entice a few punters who watched him finish a creditable third in the Ultima Handicap Hurdle at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival. He was about four lengths behind the winner, The Druids Nephew, that day showing he can mix it with some well-respected runners. There is a slight concern that he unseated his rider in both the Irish Grand National in 2014 and the Paddy Power Chase in December, but if he makes it twice around the famous Aintree course he has as good a chance as most to get in amongst the places, though we think he hasn’t got it in him to win the National.

Goonyella

Goonyella

Nine year old Irish gelding Goonyella is priced at betting odds of 20/1 with Bet365 and others, but we are inclined to look elsewhere as we are not at all convinced of his credentials to challenge in this extremely testing race.
His position towards the top of the betting for the 2016 Grand National is based largely on his Midlands Grand National victory and Scottish Grand National second place in 2015, and while both saw decent performances, the field he will face at Aintree will be a cut above those he faced on those occasions. He does have a decent amount of stamina but we feel that even if he is in contention in the closing stages, better quality runners will easily get the better of him.

Kruzhlinin

Kruzhlinin

The news that Richard Johnson has been given the ride on Philip Hobbs’ Kruzhlinin for Satruday’s Grand National has given some punters cause to back the nine year at odds of around 25/1. He finished a very reasonable 10th in last year’s National, though he was never in contention to challenge the leaders. Still, having at least made it around the two laps of the Aintree course will stand him in good stead to perhaps nick a place in this year’s race. He comes into it in decent enough form having finished fifth in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and has raced four times at Aintree so will be familiar with the environment. Really we can’t see him making an impact here though so we’ll be looking elsewhere.

Boston Bob

Boston Bob

The Willie Mullins-trained Boston Bob has seen a flurry of bets since the confirmation that the great Ruby Walsh will be in the saddle. The Mullins-Walsh pairing has taken their fair share of glory over the years, most notably at the Cheltenham Festival in recent times; indeed they combined to great effect in the 2005 Grand National which they won with Hedgehunter. We really can’t see this aging gelding getting into contention in this year’s big race at Aintree. He did win the 2014 Melling Chase at Aintree, but we’re not convinced he has the stamina to put himself in a position to challenge in the closing stages. Priced at 33/1 with some bookies, he is sure to attract a fair bit of each way money… but not from us.

Triolo D'Alene

Triolo D'Alene

The Nicky Henderson-trained Triolo D’Alene was pulled up before the second attempt at Becher’s Brook in the 2014 Grand National, and we’d be pleasantly surprised if he made it much further this time around. He was also pulled up when well out of it in the Hennessy Gold Cup the following November, and has only raced thrice since. His ability to stay is questionable to say the least and though he should be given some credit for his 2013 victory in the Topham Chase at Aintree we just don’t think this nine year old is in the same class as some of those above him in the betting. Widely available at 33/1, Triolo D’Alene would need a lot of things to go his way on Saturday to stand a chance.

Cause Of Causes

Cause Of Causes

Gordon Elliott’s eight year old American gelding, Cause Of Causes, is another runner in the 2016 Grand National that looks a very good each way prospect. Priced at best betting odds of 25/1 with Betway at the time of writing (while as short as 14s elsewhere), Cause Of Causes finished a creditable eighth in last year’s National, staying on well but not being close enough to the leaders to truly challenge.
Fine victories at the Cheltenham Festival in 2015 (the Toby Balding National Hunt Chase) and this year (the Kim Muri Handicap Chase) have encouraged punters to pile in given the generous handicap for the big race at Aintree. We are very tempted to back Cause Of Causes each way for the Grand National before the odds are shortened.

Bishops Road

Bishops Road

Eight year old Irish gelding Bishops Road has run himself into a good bit of form in 2016, winning the 32Red Handicap Chase at Sandown on 2nd January before romping to victory by nine lengths in the Grand National Trial at Haydock in February. Though he showed great staying power that day over the three mile, four furlong course, it should be noted that only three of the eight starters finished the race with the rest pulling up. There isn’t too much in Bishops Road’s past to suggest he has a real chance of success at Aintree and though betting odds of 25/1 with most bookies may look fine for an each way punt, we think there are plenty of more worthy contenders at that price and greater.

Carlingford Lough

Carlingford Lough

John Kiely’s Carlington Lough could be another interesting each way option for the 2016 Grand National. He looked like he could have kept running in the Cheltenham Gold Cup recently (in which he finished fourth) and though he couldn’t match the speed of the top three in the closing stages, he matched them for stamina.
He won the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown for the second year in a row in February, beating Road To Riches by 12 lengths, and at betting odds of 25/1 with William Hill and others, he certainly represents a fair chunk of value. The one downside is that he is unlikely to outrun any of the leading contenders in the final furlongs and so a place might be the best he can realistically hope for.

 
 

Grand National Betting Odds 2016 Tips

The Grand National 2016 is quite simply the biggest and most popular horse race in the world. It is also probably the most challenging, both for the horses and jockeys and also for the betting public as the large field, mammoth trip and monstrously tough obstacles make it something of a lottery at times in terms of picking the winner. Here we bring you the latest Grand National 2016 betting tips and odds, with our predictions for what might transpire at Aintree on 11th April.

The Grand National is no standalone race, of course, it is merely the highlight of a three-day racing festival at Aintree that includes a 10 Grade One races and nine races with prize funds of £100,000 or more. But it is the Grand National itself, with its monster purse of £1,000,000, its 30 obstacles and its distance of over four miles that really steals the show at Aintree and – for many – of the whole National Hunt season.

The Grand National 2016 will be the 168th running of the famous race and it promises to be as exciting as ever. With around 40 runners set to make it to the start, providing betting tips for the Grand National is no easy task. The fact that so many runners don’t even make it round the two circuits of the famous Aintree course is no great surprise given obstacles as imposing as The Chair and Becher’s Brook. But, on the plus side, we will at least provide you with the best betting odds for all the horses from the best bookies in the business, so you can be assured of getting good value for your bets.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the leading contenders. There are still 74 horses on the card (ahead of the final declarations on 6th April) and the bookies’ favourite at this stage is Jonjo O’Neill’s eight-year-old Shutthefrontdoor. He won the Irish Grand National in April last year and has performed well throughout his career, winning nine of his 14 starts to date. With rumours that retiring AP McCoy is being handed the ride, there are sure to be plenty of punters willing to pile in at the current odds of 8/1 with Bet365 (among others).

Paul Nicholls’ Rocky Creek is next in line at betting odds of 11/1 with Betfair, and after running in fifth last year in the Grand National (a position that was enough to secure each way pay-outs with many bookies) he might have enough to challenge this time around. Doubt was cast over his credentials when he was pulled up in the Hennessy Gold Cup in November, but a subsequent victory at Kempton has got connections excited once more.

The Philip Hobbs-trained 11-year-old Balthazar King is well fancied at best betting odds of 14/1 with Coral, and after coming 15th in the 2013 National and an impressive second last year, he has proved he can handle the course and distance. The last three winners of this famous handicap have been aged 11 years, and that is the icing on the cake for us. Our main betting tip for the Grand National 2016 is therefore Balthazar King on the nose.

Of course, many people get involved with the Grand National for the each way value that is available, and – as always – there are plenty of long-odds options for those seeking that big win. Monbeg Dude, for instance, looks a very good each way shout at generally available betting odds of 33/1. He was seventh in last year’s Grand National, an experience he will have learned a lot from, and we fancy he can go at least a couple of places better this year.

 


Grand National Betting Overview

The Grand National is the horse race that captures the imagination of the British (and Irish) public more than any other in the National Hunt calendar, especially those who like to bet on horse racing. With such a large field and so many fences to jump, anything can happen, which means you can often get some excellent betting odds, even for the well-fancied runners. And the good news is that we compare the best Grand National betting odds from all the top bookmakers to make sure you get the very best value and then – if you pick a winner – you can maximise the profits from your bets!

The Grand National has a grand history and has been run at the Aintree racecourse near Liverpool since 1839. The present race is as challenging as they come and is run over a mammoth distance of four miles, three furlongs and 110 yards, with 30 obstacles to jump over two circuits of the course. It is no wonder many of the horses don’t make it to the finish, which can really spoil your day if you are betting on the race!

The upshot of that, however, is that the betting odds you get – especially for the outsiders – will bring you a handsome reward if you pick a winner, or even if you back a horse each way and it finishes in the top four, five or even six places (as different bookmakers pay out for a different number of places).

Some of the jumps are so notorious that they have become famous in their own right, and none more so than Becher’s Brook which has a drop of almost seven feet on the landing side and has been described by some jockeys as being like “jumping off the end of the world”. It certainly takes a brave – or lucky – jockey (and horse for that matter!) to make it round the Grand National in one piece.

There have been many famous winners of the Grand National, including the five-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winner from the 1930s, Golden Miller, and the 1970s legend, Red Rum, who is still the only horse to have won the Grand National three times, making a lot of punters who bet on him each time very, very happy!

Betting on the Grand National is notoriously difficult, and if your horse even makes it to the finish you’ll have done well – and will probably be in with a decent shout of winning any each way bets. There have been five winners in the history of the race who were priced at gigantic betting odds of 100/1 at the start, the most recent being Mon Mome in 2009. While it is unlikely a similarly priced horse will do the business again for a while, you never know.

Whether you are planning to bet on a long odds outsider or you are going to back one of the favourites, be sure to check the latest Grand National betting odds comparison on this site to make sure you get the very best betting odds for your selections.

Grand National Betting Tips and Preview – Who will be victorious in the toughest horse race of them all?

The Grand National is without doubt one of the toughest horse races for runners and riders, run over a distance of four miles, three furlongs and 110 yards, and with 30 fences to jump over two circuits of the famous Aintree Racecourse, it is not surprising so many horses fail to make it to the finish. But this also means it is one of the hardest races on which to bet as the unpredictability of a large field and a very challenging course takes its toll. On the plus side, this means many of the bookies offer very good betting odds for almost all the runners, and our betting odds comparison service ensures you get the best prices from the best bookmakers, whichever horse you plan to back.

So how do you go about picking a winning bet for the Grand National? Well, we won’t lie, it is not easy. However much you study the form, take into account the handicaps, the firmness of the ground and the ratings of the jockeys and trainers, you will still be reliant on a large slice of luck to pick the winner. That’s not to say there isn’t a fair amount of betting value to be found, and with many of the runners priced at betting odds of 33/1 or better, there are lots of good opportunities for each way bets that could well pay dividends.

Leading the betting at the time of writing is Teaforthree who is priced at best betting odds of 10/1 with Ladbrokes and others. The Irish 10-year-old, who is trained by Rebecca Curtis, came third in last year’s Grand National, a very impressive display in his Aintree debut. He was just a neck behind second-placed Cappa Bleu but nine lengths off the winner Auroras Encore (who was priced at odds of 66/1, incidentally). Carrying a few pounds less weight than this time last year, Teaforthree certainly has a decent shout of success, but in such a big field, backing the favourite is not something we’re willing to do.

Tidal Bay is the second favourite at 16/1 with Bet365 and others, but the Paul Nicholls-trained gelding is getting on in years and we feel his best chance was back in 2011 – though he unseated his rider in that renewal. There have only been two 13-year-old winners of the Grand National in history (in 1894 and 1923) and we can’t see another this year.

Long Run and Monbeg Dude – both priced at 20/1 with William Hill – both offer very good prospects, with the 2011 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run being fancied by many, the French nine-year-old ticking many of the boxes, though he is a little weighty with a handicap of 11-9.

It is the Irish nine-year-old Monbeg Dude who is our main pick for Grand National success this year. Trained by Michael Schudamore, he beat the current favourite for this one, Teaforthree, in a handicap at Chepstow last January and has also posted a couple of good wins at Cheltenham in the last two seasons. With a very generous handicap of 10-9, we think he offers great value at betting odds of 20/1, so snap it up now before he shortens.
