Grand National Betting Tips
By Michael Flynn, Apr 6 2013 01:26AM
The Grand National is finally here! This is one race where form and tips go out the window.
40 competing horses will race just over 4.5 miles and hopefully all will finish.
You will have more chance of picking a winner by betting each way. This is where two seperate bets are placed, one for the win and one for a place. Different bookmakers pay out for a different amount of places.
We highly recommend bet365 for horse racing as they generally speaking have the best odds. You will get a better return for your stake.
As for Tips, I usually go for 3 horses. one might not start or might get pulled up, one always seems to finish outside of the paying places and one bags me a decent return!
1. COLBERT STATION jockey: AP McCoy
I highly rate Tony McCoy as a jocky and expect him to be in a winning position at some point during the race.
11/1 with bet365.
2. ON HIS OWN jockey: Ruby Walsh
A highly backed favourite and I'm following the crowd.
9/1 with bet365.
3. ALWAYS WAINING jockey: Tom O'Brien
A good strong horse over big jumps. My outsider tip at odds 33/1 with bet365.
Good Luck, and for more in depth guides please go to the betting guide section. You will be able to read about the best bookies and the horse racing terms.
Odds are correct at time of writing, they will change as it is a moving market.
