Pick a Grand National 2010 Winner! Tips on the Top 20 Horses Running. Bet Online

Posted on March 30th, 2010

Following on from our article yesterday about understanding the basic bets you can make at The Grand National (which is coming up fast!), here are some tips on the top 20 runners and approximate odds you´ll get at the bookies (as of today).

Who´s going to win the Grand National in 2010? We pick our winners-  if you want to know what we´ll be betting on (we reserve the right to change our mind and we don´t guarantee success!), but at the moment we´ve got our eye on 3 runners marked with a **….scroll down to the bottom to see the rationale behind our picks. If we pick some good ´uns, you can be sure that we´ll be bleating about it on the blog until the 2011 Grand National. And if we pick some 3 legged donkeys, you can be doubly sure that we´ll move quietly onto the next topic and you´ll never hear another word on the subject (well until next year of course).

Anyway, enough waffle- let´s get on to this year´s runners.
And where are we going to bet? Well, we bet with Paddy Power. We´ve never had any issues with them. If you sign up for the first time, they´ll give you a £10 FREE Grand National bet on the house.

Big Fella Thanks
Ran a fantastic race in 2009- finished 6th. 7 years old. Must be a contender.
Odds: 7-1
Mon Mome
100/1 outside winner in 2009- can he repeat his success in 2010?
Odds:    12-1
Arbor Supreme
Number ?   Weight 10-8
On the up- this young Irish course could have what it takes. Good stamina.
Odds: 14-1
Black Apalachi
Was unlucky in 2009, but might be that king of horse. Strong but needs a change in fortunes.
Odds: 14-1
Niche Market
Suprise winner of the Irish National – young and on the up- could easily scoop the honours at Aintree.
Odds:   16-1
The Package
Won the same pre Grand National race a Mon Mome last year – so if you are at all superstitious……
Odds:    16-1
Tricky Trickster **
A previous winner over 4 miles at Cheltenham so should perform strongly.
Odds:    16-1
Vic Venturi
Won  the Becher Chase this season.
Odds: 16-1
Already has 2 summer handicaps in the bag and has shot up the handicap. Shares the same stable as 2007 winner Silver Birch.
Odds:   20-1
Cant Buy Time
Made a mistake early on in 2009, but is older and wiser.
Odds:   20-1
Ballyholland **
Won the Galway Chase last summer and is on winning form after a well earned rest.
Odds:   25-1
Character Building
Won at at the 2009 Cheltenham Festival and likely to be attracting money at the Grand National.
Odds:    25-1
Chief Dan George
Winner of the William Hill Chase at Cheltenham.
Odds:   25-1
Comply Or Die **
2008 National winner and runner-up last year. Good jumper. Third time, lucky again?
Odds:   25-1
Snowy Morning
3rd in 2008 but was well back last year.
Odds:    25-1
State Of Play
Thoroughbred horse who has a Hennessy and a Charlie Hall Chase on the mantelpiece.
Odds:    27-1
Whinstone Boy
From a wise stable who are previous Grand National winners- this is their new secret weapon.
Odds: 33-1
My Will **
Finished 3rd to Mon Mome last year
Odds: 33-1
Dont Push It
Could this be a winner for AP McCoy?
Odds: 40-1
Dream Alliance
Loves fences- won the Welsh National in his first outing  for nearly two years. Strong outside chance.
Odds: 40-1
Hello Bud
Won the National in Scotland. From the same stable as Earth Summit, a winner at Aintree.
Odds 40-1
So what are we betting on this year. Well, we are going for the following, which is a mixture of youth and experience.
  • Comply or Die– £10 Each Way Bet. Why? We think 2010 is the year for this horse. A “young” 11 years old.
  • Ballyholland–  £10 Each Way Bet. Why? This horse is well rested- should have the legs. 9 years old.
  • Tricky Trickster– £10 to win. Why? Proven over the distance. plus we like the name (!). A feisty 7 year old.
  • Well- a 100-1 outsider romped in last year (Mon Mome). So you might want to have a flutter on an outsider. We´re going to stick a fiver on a French 10 year old called “My Will” which is a 33-1 outsider at the moment.
