Grand National 2019 News

Watching horses compete against each other is a scene in itself, but betting and odds play a considerable part in horse racing sport. Betting on horse racing makes it even more exciting when it comes to having an opinion and supporting it by placing your hard-earned cash down. Horse racing punters and bookmakers have been in existence for over a hundred years. The emergence of the digital age in full force shows the way people place bets nowadays.

Deciding Grand National Odds for Each Horse

Few factors decide the prices on each Grand National horse. In the build-up, most bookmakers have similar prices on every horse. Before declaring final runners, which is two days before horse racing, the bookmakers have an ‘ante-post' market filled with all horses that the bookmakers think will run in the Grand National. Because of safety reasons, the maximum number of runners in the Grand National is 40. Many priced-up horses don't make it. However, it doesn't mean bookmakers will pick odds out of the air. Placing more money on an individual horse makes their odds shorter - The opposite to this is that when there is no interest in a particular horse the odds for that runner might increase since bookmakers attract punters to place a bet with them.

Smart Bets on the Race

A lot takes place in the build-up to the Grand National. The betting market comes to life in the morning of the race, and in the hour or minutes before th off. As the race approaches, the ideal place to grab a Free Bet for Grand National 2019 is through an online sportsbook. Grand National racers are famous, so there will be no end of free bets, or unique betting offers from online sportsbooks. Bookies can find offers like 25/1 on Vintage Clouds to win Grand National by Paddy Power betting or 12/1 on Tiger Roll to win Grand National by BetVictor, which are available online.

Among the Grand National 2019 betting tips, ante-post betting is the best way to approach this race. Better odds are always available before the race, and before the funs settles on few frontrunners, which drive their odds down.

Weather changes can play a huge part. Some horses do not like soft ground - even though it may have been well fancied in the build-up, and the ground is filled with rain on the Grand National day, then it could be a hindering factor against that horse. This may cause their odds to drift, while the contradiction to this may be a horse, which loves soft ground and their odds getting shorter and supporters taking advantage.

Horses, which have run in the past Aintree Grand Nationals, are undoubtedly the best to pick. Horses, which will race well in 2019 Grand National horses, and have a prior history in the past, often do well. The evidence to this is the 5 of the last 17, which is 29% of the champions of the Grand National in the previous year's race. The favorite Grand National tips for 2019's includes the following:

Tiger Roll

The winner of the 2018 Grand National Tiger Roll, is also lining-up again in 2019 and will be popular with punters still. Tiger Roll was only eight when he took the race last year, so he will have time on his side since he will be just turning 9 in 2019. Gordon Elliott-trained racer will be hoping to be the first back-to-back winner of the Grand National since Red Rum in 1973 & 1974. In 2018 Tiger Roll was rated 150 and carried 10st13lbs but being a confirmed winner of the race, we expect the horse to have a bit more weight if it runs again in 2019.


For Blaklion, the 2019 renewal will be his third outing in this race. In 2017, he came fourth after being sent off the 8/1 favorite, whereas in 2018 he was taken down at the first fence. So, the punters of the 14/1 shot last year, knew their fate early on but having lead in the 2018 Becher Chase over National-style fences, we know Blaklion will handle the course. The horse will be ten years old in 2019, so he has time on his side for some more nationals and might have another leading chance if he gets to the competition.

The Grand National is the most admired horse racing occasion of the year! In 2019, Horse owners, trainers, and riders will try to have a place in the history of the sport on April 6th. The current champion, Tiger Roll, will be among the leading contenders, but no horse since Red Rum won back-to-back crowns in 1974.
