Betting offers for the 2018 Grand National will start to become very thin on the ground as the races gets closer, in fact expect most bookers to promptly withdraw all offers from Friday afternoon ahead of the race on Saturday April 14th.
Not so with Paddy Power, so if you’re looking for some real value with your bets for the Grand National 2018, you may be very interested to know that they have confirmed they will be paying out on the first SIX runners home in this year’s race.
And if you're wondering just how profitable it can be to back a horse that finished in sixth place check out the stats below…
