The thrills and spills around Aintree’s four miles and two furlongs course is a sight to behold and a great buzz get financially involved in.
For both horse and jockey, it is the ultimate test of abilities. Only the bravest and strongest men in the saddle can prosper and they don’t come much braver than AP McCoy.
The 21 time champion jockey announced his retirement from professional race riding earlier this season that means that this will be his last Grand National. He takes the ride aboard Shutthefrontdoor, who is likely to go off one of the shortest priced favourites in recent Grand National history.
McCoy has already stated that he will retire immediately after the race if he is successful. The amount of money that will be riding on Shutthefrontdoor will be pretty frightening for the bookmakers. Every Tom, Dick and Housewife will be throwing down a fiver or tenner in the hope that McCoy can achieve the fairy-tale ending.
Shrewd punters will be well aware of the market domination of McCoys mount. In their eyes, the horse will go off a lot shorter than what he would have done if McCoy was not on board.
Put simply, the horse will be overbet. This opens the door for each way value seekers to grab an attractive price on a whole host of other Grand National runners.
The horse that has been quietly generating lots of interest in shrewd punting circles is Rocky Creek.
Trained by the master that is Paul Nichols, this horse ran a fantastic race in last year’s renewal, but failed to get home due to problems with his breathing. However, one year later he returns to Aintree a different animal.
Nichols has fixed the problem with his breathing and there is an expectation that he will see out the trip much more convincingly. In many people’s eyes, he should be favourite rather than Shutthefontdoor.
Every punter has their own way of going about the process of finding the winner of the Grand National. Some like to stick a pin in the race card at random, others prefer more logical methods such as in-depth form study or statistical based analysis.
There are no right or wrong ways to find a winner, but punters should be looking to take advantage of some brilliant free bets offers on the table around this type of race.
Grand National is a brilliant time for new customers to sign-up as firms like Bet365, William Hill and Paddy Power all are offering new, exciting free bet offers which punters can use for their Grand National bets.
So, for example, if you deposit an amount to back Rocky Creek in the Grand National at 10/1, the bookmaker will match your deposit in your account to wager on another selection, whatever sport you decide to wager on.
The same free-bet offer applies to any value up to £200, so if you deposit and bet £20 then you will receive a free £20 to go with it.
