Silks JP McManus - Grand National

I AM MAXIMUS

4.6/5
7/1

JOCKEY: - PAUL TOWNEND

NO: 5 | FORM: 1-1431 | WEIGHT: 11-06 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: W P MULLINS

I Am Maximus has a knack for finishing in the money. After a triumphant run in the Irish Grand National in 2023, he's set to conquer Aintree's big fence. Channeling the spirit of his cinematic namesake from the Gladiator movie, he seems poised to ask, 'Are you not entertained?'

Corach Rambler Horse

CORACH RAMBLER

4/5
15/2

JOCKEY: - DEREK FOX

NO: 7 | FORM: 11-533 | WEIGHT: 11-06 | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: L. RUSSELL

Corach Rambler, last year's Grand National hero, is currently the hot favourite. However, shouldering more weight than he did in 2023 could dampen his chances.

Mr Incredible Silks

MR INCREDIBLE

3/5
9/1

JOCKEY: - BRIAN HAYES

NO: 18 | FORM: B23U-2 | WEIGHT: 10-11 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: WP MULLINS

Ran in the 2023 National but unseated his jockey. Has made one outing since, in the Midlands Grand National and finished a decent second carrying far more weight than he will at Aintree. With form on heavy ground, can 2024 produce a better result?    

Silks JP McManus - Grand National

LIMERICK LACE

3.6/5
10/1

JOCKEY: - MARK WALSH

NO: 25 | FORM: 3-1211 | WEIGHT: 10-08 | AGE: 7 | TRAINER: G CROMWELL

No surprise the horse is owned by JP McManus given that he hails from Limerick in Ireland. He's performing well but hasn't faced anything as long as Aintree's course, which could be an issue.

Silks JP McManus - Grand National

MEETINGOFTHEWATERS

3/5
11/1

JOCKEY: - DANNY MULLINS

NO: 26 | FORM: 4311U3 | WEIGHT: 10-08 | AGE: 7 | TRAINER: WP MULLINS

Did exceptionally well when winning the feature chase at the Leopardstown Christmas festival beating out 26 rivals in the process. Followed that with a 3rd place finish in the Ultima at Cheltenham. If the rain continues this week at Aintree, he should relish soft/heavy ground.   

Panda Boy Runner

PANDA BOY

3.3/5
12/1

JOCKEY: - JJ SLEVIN

NO: 31 | FORM: 5-4424 | WEIGHT: 10-07 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: M BRASSIL

It's been a mixed season for Panda Boy. His early form was dismal especially at Naas when he finished 55L behind the winner over two miles. Redeemed himself at Leopardstown, with decent performances in his last two races. The marathon distance of the Grand National might suit him. 

Noble Yeats Horse Racing Silks

NOBLE YEATS

4/5
14/1

JOCKEY: - HARRY COBDEN

NO: 1 | FORM: 4-7217 | WEIGHT: 11-12 | AGE: 9 | TRAINER: E MULLINS

The odds for Noble Yeats in the 2024 Grand National might surprise many, especially considering his stellar past performances. With a victory in 2022 and a 4th place finish last year, he's primed for another strong run. And with bookmakers extending payouts to five and six places, he looks good value for each-way backers.

Kitty's Light Silk

KITTY'S LIGHT

4.5/5
14/1

JOCKEY: - JACK TUDOR

NO: 34 | FORM: -47057 | WEIGHT: 10-07 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: C. WILLIAMS

Finished last season on a high, winning the Eider Chase, the Scottish Grand National, and the Gold Cup at Sandown. If there's one horse that loves the long distanced races, it's Kitty's Light.

Mahler Mission Silks

MAHLER MISSION

3.2/5
14/1

JOCKEY: - BEN HARVEY

NO: 10 | FORM: 12F-22 | WEIGHT: 11-05 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: JOHN C McCONNELL

Securing second in Newbury's Coral Gold Cup last December boosts his prospects for the 2024 Grand National. Though Aintree's tough course presents multiple challenges, he's still a strong contender.

Silks for Vanillier Grand National horse

VANILLIER

3.8/5
16/1

JOCKEY: - SEAN FLANAGAN

NO: 17 | FORM: 2-5502 | WEIGHT: 10-12 | AGE: 9 | TRAINER: G CROMWELL

Having clinched second behind Corach Rambler in the last Grand National, Vanillier is poised for another crack at the big one. The handicapper didn't add to his load for 2024, so he remains a noteworthy contender.

Gigginstown Silks

COKO BEACH

2.8/5
18/1

JOCKEY: - JORDAN GAINFORD

NO: 3 | FORM: P-3121 | WEIGHT: 11-08 | AGE: 9 | TRAINER: G ELLIOTT

This will be the third attempt at the Grand National for Coko Beach. He was 8th in 2022 and pulled up in 2023. On solid form, he was 2nd in the Becher Chase in December, so he clearly loves this course with proven ability to get around.  

Minella Indo Horse Colours

MINELLA INDO

3.3/5
22/1

JOCKEY: - RACHAEL BLACKMORE

NO: 6 | FORM: 1P-144 | WEIGHT: 11-06 | AGE: 11 | TRAINER: H DE BROMHEAD

Winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2021, Minella Indo started this season well with a win at Punchestown.  Two runs since have proved he has still got stamina and can't be ruled out. 

Gigginstown Silks

DELTA WORK

4/5
25/1

JOCKEY: - JACK KENNEDY

NO: 11 | FORM: 1U-366 | WEIGHT: 11-04 | AGE: 11 | TRAINER: G. ELLIOTT

Delta Work's journey in the 2023 Grand National was abruptly halted at the 21st fence, but with a prior 3rd place finish at Aintree, he's not to be underestimated. Will this be his year to shine?

Foxy Jacks

FOXY JACKS

3.5/5
25/1

JOCKEY: - GAVIN BROUDER

NO: 12 | FORM: 21P314 | WEIGHT: 11-04 | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: M MORRIS

Long odds but Foxy Jacks ticks a few boxes, not least of which is his stamina. He won the Cross Country at Cheltenham in November, which is no mean feat. Will the ground suit him? If so, he could be the underdog... 

Silks JP McManus - Grand National

CAPODANNO

3.4/5
25/1

JOCKEY: - KEITH DONOGHUE

NO: 4 | FORM: P-6314 | WEIGHT: 11-08 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: W MULLINS

Has steadily improved this year, going from last place in his first seasonal race to a winner at Cheltenham in the Cotswold Chase in January. He did run in last year's race but pulled up before the last fence. Expected to step up his game in this year's race.

Latenightpass Silks

LATENIGHTPASS

4.1/5
25/1

JOCKEY: - GINA ANDREWS

NO: 20 | FORM: 14-215 | WEIGHT: 10-10 | AGE: 11 | TRAINER: T. ELLIS

Finished 4th in the Foxhunters Chase at Aintree and came back strong in November to compete in the Cross Country at Cheltenham. A month later, won the Glenfarclas Crystal Cup. Could be the surprise package on the day.

Adamantly Chosen

ADAMANTLY CHOSEN

2.3/5
28/1

JOCKEY: - SEAN O'KEEFFE

NO: 22 | FORM: P-4071 | WEIGHT: 10-09 | AGE: 7 | TRAINER: W MULLINS

Narrowly qualified for the National and did so only by winning a 3m2f race on March 17th. Had never won or placed in a race beyond 2m7½f before that, which doesn't bode particularly well for his chances. 

Galia Grand National

GALIA DES LITEAUX

2.9/5
28/1

JOCKEY: - HARRY SKELTON

NO: 30 | FORM: 4-1224 | WEIGHT: 10-07 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: D SKELTON

With a helping hand from the handicapper, plus his ample stamina and a trainer hitting their stride, he's ready to put forward a strong challenge.

Aint That a Shame - Grand National 2024

AIN'T THAT A SHAME

3.3/5
28/1

JOCKEY: - DAVID MAXWELL

NO: 16 | FORM: 10-9P1 | WEIGHT: 10-13 | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: H DE BROMHEAD

Went off in last year's National as a 10/1 shot and did get around but in 17th place. That said, never overlook horses that have proven stamina around the course. Especially one that won the Goffs Thyestes last time out!  

Stattler Silks

STATTLER

3/5
33/1

JOCKEY: - PATRICK MULLINS

NO: 9 | FORM: 2P-624 | WEIGHT: 11-05 | AGE: 9 | TRAINER: WP MULLINS

Having pulled up in the Gold Cup last year, he skipped Cheltenham this season and is now firmly aimed at the Grand National. A former National Hunt winner, his form appears to have dipped this season so he may struggle to make an impact in this race.  

Chemical Energy

CHEMICAL ENERGY

2.7/5
33/1

JOCKEY: - DANNY GILLIGAN

NO: 24 | FORM: 142P-6 | WEIGHT: 10-09 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: G ELLIOTT

Tried his luck in the Irish National back in 2023 but didn't finish the race. He came back in September 2023 to race in The Kerry National and came in 6th. Little to suggest he'll have the energy to make an impression at Aintree.

Stattler Silks

GALVIN

3.6/5
40/1

JOCKEY: - SAM EWING

NO: 13 | FORM: 2U-854 | WEIGHT: 11-02 | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: G. ELLIOTT

Back for another crack at the Grand National, Galvin was near top weight last year before he unseated his jockey. With almost a stone less on his back this time around, he looks like a much better prospect. 

Nassalam Silk

NASSALAM

4.4/5
40/1

JOCKEY: - CAOILIN QUINN

NO: 2 | FORM: 7-411P | WEIGHT: 11-08 | AGE: 7 | TRAINER: G MOORE

Nassalam's season is on fire, kicking off with a win in the Welsh Grand National Trial, then clinching the Welsh National at Chepstow shortly after. The Gold Cup wasn't his best showing, but with experience over the big Aintree fences, he could be one to watch.

Mac Tottie Silk 2024

MAC TOTTIE

1.8/5
50/1

JOCKEY: - JAMES BOWEN

NO: 23 | FORM: /P-177 | WEIGHT: 10-09 | AGE: 11 | TRAINER: P BOWEN

Despite efforts, this horse struggles with long distances. Going back to 2021, he fell in the Becher, followed that by pulling up in the Welsh National, then raced once in over a year and half before returning in December 2023. He won that race at 2m4f but was well beaten on his next two trips at more than 3m. 

Roi Mage Runner Silk

ROI MAGE

3/5
50/1

JOCKEY: - JAMES REVELEY

NO: 28 | FORM: 27-162 | WEIGHT: 10-08 | AGE: 12 | TRAINER: P GRIFFIN

Undoubtedly one of the most experienced chasers entered into the race. With 42 chase starts, he has won nine times and placed another 16 times. He ran in last year's National and finished 7th so can definitely get around the course. He might not win but he could place. 

The Goffer Silk Grand National 2024

THE GOFFER

2.6/5
50/1

JOCKEY: - SEAN BOWEN

NO: 27 | FORM: 4-8585 | WEIGHT: 10-08 | AGE: 7 | TRAINER: G ELLIOTT

Relatively young and not having the best season. Nevertheless, redeemed himself a little in the Ultima Handicap Chase at Cheltenham but will need a lot of luck to have any impact on the 2024 Grand National.    

Glengouly Racing Silks

GLENGOULY

2.3/5
66/1

JOCKEY: - MICHAEL O'SULLIVAN

NO: 29 | FORM: P5-220 | WEIGHT: 10-07 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: WP MULLINS

It's been a while since his last victory, but he's showing improved form this season, notching second places at Limerick and performing well in the Goffs Thyestes. Winning might seem unlikely, but heavy ground could tilt the odds in his favour.

Eldorado Allen GN Runner

ELDORADO ALLEN

2.7/5
66/1

JOCKEY: - BRENDAN POWELL

NO: 15 | FORM: 4-345P | WEIGHT: 11-00 | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: J TIZZARD

Plenty of experience has been in the money in 12 of his 22 chase starts. He was fourth in the Coral Gold Cup at Newbury and has run at Aintree a couple of times, though not in the National. The ground won't suit him but at least he's familiar with the racecourse.

Minella Crooner Silk

MINELLA CROONER

2.3/5
80/1

JOCKEY: - KEVIN SEXTON

NO: 21 | FORM: -1P33P | WEIGHT: 10-10 | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: G ELLIOTT

Ended up third out of four in Fairyhouse's Bobbyjo Chase and didn't finish the Ultima at Cheltenham last time out. His preference for heavy ground could work to his advantage, if the Aintree ground comes up softer than expected.

Silks JP McManus - Grand National

JANIDIL

2.7/5
80/1

JOCKEY: - JODY MCGARVEY

NO: 8 | FORM: 7F-230 | WEIGHT: 11-06 | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: W MULLINS

Undoubtedly a decent horse but one who is definitely more suited to the shorter distanced races. In fact, he almost never races beyond 2m4f so the Grand National is going to be a monumental challenge. 

Gigginstown Silks

FAROUK D'ALENE

1.3/5
80/1

JOCKEY: - DONAGH MEYLER

NO: 14 | FORM: F/F52P | WEIGHT: 11-01 | AGE: 9 | TRAINER: G ELLIOTT

Unfortunately there's very little in this horses form to suggest that he could spring a surprise at Aintree. He fell in his seasonal return, was 25L off the winner in race over 2m6f and pulled up at Cheltenham. Gordon Elliott will need to wave a magic wand.

Eklat De Rire

EKLAT DE RIRE

2/5
125/1

JOCKEY: - DARRAGH O'KEEFFE

NO: 32 | FORM: /4-82P | WEIGHT: 10-07 | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: H DE BROMHEAD

Was out for a year before returning in December 2023 only to lose by a whopping 46L and that was only over 2m4½f. Took his chances in the Ultima at Cheltenham but pulled up. His stamina is questionable.

RACE NEWS & UPDATES

TRENDS FOR PICKING A WINNER

Follow the trends and statistics to narrow down the Grand National 2024 field.

Bookmakers across the UK anticipate that over £250m in bets will be staked on the 2024 Grand National from millions of customers. Only a few of those placing bets will manage to back the winner on the day. Will you be one of them?

Some people will take a punt on a tip from a friend. Others will pick a runner based on the colour of the silks worn by the jockey. While more will lump on a horse for no other reason than they like the name of the horse. In fact, when Rule The World won in 2016, a significant amount of people who had backed it did so because it was their favourite Take That song!

Being more strategic about your choice of a horse only involves a little extra work. Read the racing news and study the trends and statistics that have emerged over the last ten years, and try to determine patterns that will help whittle down your selections.

Only two winners carried more than 10-13 in the past ten Grand Nationals, and they were Tiger Roll in 2019 (11-05) and Many Clouds in 2015 (11-09).

Seven of the last ten winners were 8 or 9 years old. Noble Yeats in 2022 at 7-years old, Pineau De Re in 2014, and Auroras Encore in 2013 broke that trend as they were both eleven years old.

Only two winners went off as the favourite from the last ten Grand Nationals. They were Corach Rambler in 2023 (8/1) and Tiger Roll in 2019 (4/1).

It can be argued that racing fans actually backed jockey AP McCoy, more so than Don’t Push It when they won in 2010 as favourites. Mon Mome won on 100/1, but he was the first since 1967 to do that. In fact, the average odds of a winning Grand National horse are around 20/1.

Six of the last ten winners had at least four seasonal runs before going on to win the Aintree spectacular. The only four who had fewer were Corach Rambler in 2023, Minella Times in 2021, One For Arthur in 2017 and Tiger Roll in 2019. They had all run three times.

Nine of the last ten winners had either won or placed in a race at least 3m or longer in the season they won the Grand National. Only one, Auroras Encore, had not won or placed on the run-up to the 2013 National.

None of the last 10 winners unseated their jockey in the season they won the Grand National.

Eight of the last ten winners had not fallen in the season they won the Grand National.

Ideally, what you’re looking for is a Grand National 2024 Runner that is carrying 11-00 or less, who is 8 or 9 (2014 was the last time a horse older than that won the National).

Generally, when online betting, avoid the favourites and look for those priced between 14/1 and 33/1 and with at least three seasonal runs, with extra consideration for those who have won or placed at 3 miles or more. 

Or tear up the stats and pick a runner because you like its name!

WEIGHT WORRIES

In the last 10 years just two winners carried more than 10st 13lbs. None carried top weight.

FAVOURITISM

Only 5 pre-race favourites have won the National since 1999. They were Corach Rambler (2023), Tiger Roll (2019), Don’t Push It (2010), Comply Or Die (2008) and Hedgehunter (2005). The shortest price was 4/1 on Tiger Roll.

KEEP ON RUNNING

Since 2010, seven winners had at least 4 seasonal runs before going on to win the Grand National.

AINTREE GRAND NATIONAL FENCES

The most famous fences of the Grand National

Sixteen individual fences need to be jumped in the 2024 Grand National, 14 of them twice, as the race is run over two laps of the famous Aintree course.

Fence 6 & 22 – Becher’s Brook

Becher’s Brook is 5 feet high with the landing side between 6 inches and 10 inches lower than the takeoff side and is named after Captain Martin Becher, who fell there in the first Grand National and took shelter in the small brook running along the landing side of the fence while the remainder of the field thundered over.

Fence 7 & 23 – Foinavon

Foinavon is 4 feet 6 inches and is one of the smallest fences on the course. It was named in 1984 after the 1967 winner who avoided a mêlée at the fence to go on and win the race at outside odds of 100/1.

Fence 8 & 24 – Canal Turn

The Canal Turn is 5 ft high and is known for its difficult 90-degree left turn immediately after landing. Jockey Richard Pitman said of this fence, “you can win or lose a Grand National at the Canal Turn, because any length you can gain in the air is more economical than having to gallop it.”

Fence 9 & 25 – Valentine’s

Valentine’s is 5 feet high with a 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 m) brook and was named after a horse called Valentine, who was reputed to have jumped the fence hind legs first in 1840.

Between Fences 12 & 13 – Melling Road

A famous part of the course is located between fences 12 and 13 when the runners cross it near the Anchor Bridge, a popular vantage point since the earliest days of the race.

Fence 15 – The Chair

One of the most difficult fences on the course, The Chair is 5 feet 2 inches high but is preceded by a 6 ft wide ditch, and Grand National Runners only jump this once, on the first lap. The fence was originally the location where a distance judge sat in the earliest days of the race. The practice was done away with, but the monument where the chair stood is still there.

Fence 16 – Water Jump

The Water Jump is 2 feet 6 inches and is the second fence that runners only jump once during the race. The Water Jump was one of the most popular jumps on the course, but over the years, The Chair has overshadowed it in popularity.

Once all the fences have been jumped, the runners and riders head for the home straight, which is one of the longest in the United Kingdom at 494 yards and one that many potential winners have had victory snatched away!

BECHER’S BROOK

After falling into the Brook on the first running of the Grand National Jockey Captain Becher remarked: “He hadn’t realised how filthy water tasted without the benefits of whisky.”

CANAL TURN

In 1928 Easter Hero refused at the Canal Turn and took out 20 horses, leaving just two horses to complete the race.

OVER THE FIRST

Historically fence 1 accounted for more fallers than Becher’s Brook. Modifications were made in 2012 and 2024 to make the fence safer for horse and jockey.
