Corach Rambler Horse

CORACH RAMBLER

4.5/5
14/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: 411-53 | WEIGHT: - | AGE: 10 | TRAINER: L. RUSSELL

Lucinda Russell's star, Corach Rambler, clinched the Grand National in 2023. Currently the bookies' favourite, the question remains: will this champion rise to the challenge at Aintree once more?

Mahler Mission Silks

MAHLER MISSION

3.2/5
14/1

JOCKEY: -

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

His ages raises questions about his readiness for the rigors of the Grand National. Additionally, his jumping prowess—or lack thereof—could be a significant hurdle in navigating Aintree's challenging course. Keep an eye on him for future races, but for the 2024 Grand National, he might be a long shot.

Silks for Vanillier Grand National horse

VANILLIER

4.3/5
16/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: F22-55 | WEIGHT: - | AGE: 9 | TRAINER: G CROMWELL

Having clinched second behind Corach Rambler in the last Grand National, Vanillier is poised for another Aintree challenge. Though the handicapper might add to his load for 2024, he remains a noteworthy contender.

Silk Unknown

PANDA BOY

2.7/5
16/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: F5-442 | WEIGHT: - | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: M BRASSIL

What a mixed season Panda Boy has had. His first races were dismal especially at Naas when he finished 55L behind the winner over just two miles. He did redeem himself at Leopardstown, finishing second in the feature chase. Maybe the distance of the 2024 Grand National will suit him better. 

Monbeg Genius Colours

MONBEG GENIUS

3.5/5
16/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: 113-P3 | WEIGHT: - | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: JONJO O'NEILL

Having secured third place behind the 2023 Grand National winner, Corach Rambler, in last year's Ultima Handicap Chase at Cheltenham, Monbeg Genius has showcased potential. However, to truly stake his claim, he will likely need more experience in races over longer distances.

Kitty's Light Silk

KITTY'S LIGHT

4.5/5
20/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: 1-4705 | WEIGHT: - | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: C. WILLIAMS

Finished last season on an absolute 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.

Silks JP McManus - Grand National

I AM MAXIMUS

4.6/5
20/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: 441-14 | WEIGHT: - | 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. And much like his namesake from the Gladiator movie, he's here to declare, 'Are you not entertained?'

Noble Yeats Horse Racing Silks

NOBLE YEATS

4.9/5
20/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: 344-72 | WEIGHT: - | 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's shaping up to be a wise each-way bet.

Silks JP McManus - Grand National

CAPODANNO

3.8/5
20/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: 3P-631 | WEIGHT: - | AGE: 8 | TRAINER: W MULLINS

Has been steadily improving as the season goes on, 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. Let's hope he has more luck in 2024. 

Nassalam Silk

NASSALAM

5/5
25/1

JOCKEY: -

NO: - | FORM: 07-411 | WEIGHT: - | AGE: 7 | TRAINER: G MOORE

Nassalam is having a terrific season, first testing the waters in the Welsh Grand National Trial which he won, only to then return to Chepstow a little over two weeks later and actually win the race itself!

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.
