The Grand National 2010… 5 Days to Go!

Posted on April 6th, 2010

We´ve been running a few articles on the up and coming Grand National here on the blog? Why, we hear you ask? This is a casino site, right?
Well, the only reason is that we recently went to a Cheltenham Gold Cup party at someone´s house and had a whale of a time, so we´re getting into having a flutter on the big races this year.

The last post was all about our Grand National 2010 Tips for the race. And have we changed our minds on the likely winner on Saturday? Well, not exactly, but it´s good to keep abreast of all the latest…read on

With a global television audience of 600 million people, The Grand National is one of the UK’s biggest sporting events- it´s arguably the world’s most prestigious horse race. Last year many were left in shock by the 100/1 shock winner Mon Mome, but try and get those sort of odds this year, and you will struggle. We don´t think they´ll be a repeat- this horse is good but it´s no Red Rum, so our advice is to look a little further down the betting field and hedge your self with a few each way bets.

The current favourite for the race is Big Fella Thanks. We still lean towards his stablemate Tricky Trickster, even though he would be the first seven-year-old to win in 70 years. Snowy Morning is another horse that looks good (he finished 3rd 2 years ago) and is much lighter this year which will stand him in good stead for the fences.

All in all, there are a total of 65 horses lining up at present in the John Smith’s Grand National after today’s 5-day confirmation stage, with no less than 55 of those still in the handicap of the famous chase that takes place at Aintree on Saturday at 4.15pm.

The race comes with a record £925,000 in prize money. With 3 previous winners likely to run, this should be a good one…we can´t wait!
