2016 Grand National Tips: Special Betting MarketsPublished April 07, 2016
There is nothing better than picking out your shortlist of picks for the Grand National every year but it is worth checking out the alternative markets with betting odds offered on other outcomes in the race, from first fence fallers to where the winner will be trained.
Here are some tips in the Grand National Specials markets…
- Winner to be trained in Great Britain at 4/9 Paddy Power
Paddy Power are offering a short price of 4/9 about the winner to be trained in Great Britain, which is ‘Banker’ material. Many Clouds is trained in Lambourn and is the clear market leader and with the top six horses in the market trained in the UK, it looks likely they will have the lion’s share of horses in the mix this year.
- Winner to carry 11 stone or more at 11/10 Betfred
Five of the last seven winners of the Crabbies Grand National have carried eleven stone or more and with this shaping up to be one of, if not the, classiest renewals ever to be staged at Aintree, there is a huge chance the ratio will be improved to six from eight. Betfred and Totesport are offering odds of 11/10, which is good value.
- Gigginstown to win the race at 6/1 with Paddy Power
Gigginstown House Stud will be represented by three quality horses in the shape of First Lieutenant, Sir Des Champs and Rule The World for the Aintree Showpiece and Paddy Power are offering a tempting 6/1 that one of them can win the race.
- All Runners to jump the first fence without falling at Evens with bet365
In recent years Aintree has done a fantastic job of making the Grand National fences a lot safer for the participants and with the fences being easier to jump, there is a big chance all 40 horses will jump the first race without issue. They have also shortened the run to first which helps and in a renewal full of so many veterans of the jumping game, bet365’s price of evens about All Runners jumping the first fence will be very popular on the day.
