Grand National 2015 Betting Guide
Every year the nation descends upon their local bookies or online bookmaker to have a punt on the Grand National, it is almost a rite of passage for the UK public. One thing that people can agree on when it comes to this 4m 3f marathon race, is that it is a gamble on the day and any horse has a chance when it comes down to it. However, using past statistics to rule out horses and help you make decisions has always been the best way to do it in our eyes, and last year we picked out the 2nd placed horse, Balthazar King, for the second year in a row. This year, fingers crossed, we can go one better.
The statistical trends that we look for when picking our horses are the following:
– Carrying between 10 and 11 and a half stone
– Between the age of 9 & 11
– Rated above 135
– Had at least one run over the Grand National fences
This narrows the field down substantially, and from these we have picked our strongest fancies which are the following:
Night In Milan 33/1 EW.
Looks to have been a little overlooked in the betting and ticks all the boxes when it comes to the above statistics sitting in nicely. Had a couple of decent prep runs in preparation for this and although stamina is not guaranteed, has shaped as if this sort of trip is comfortably within grasp, notably third in the 3m6f North Yorkshire Grand National Handicap Chase. He is an accurate jumper and was 2nd in his only start at this course back in 2013.
Soll 20/1 EW.
Finished 7th in 2013 GN so know how to get round here which is always a big plus.Made a perfect start to life under David Pipe and with those more than acceptable prep runs under belt, is bang in form to take this big race. At 20/1 looks sure to give a good account on Saturday.Has looked a better horse than the one that took on these fences in 2013. Never taken a fall in his career
Whoever you are picking as your Grand National Runners good luck!
