Horses To Look Out For At The Grand National At Aintree This Year

After the jump season finally came to a close at Cheltenham last week, many of us horse racing fanatics will be looking towards the Aintree Grand National as the next major event in the horse racing calendar. Although many will say that Cheltenham is the biggest event within the horse racing calendar, there isn’t a most prestigious win than winning the Grand National and so below we look at some of the horses to watch out for this year.

Whilst we wait for the Grand National at Aintree to come around, many horse racing punters have been migrating over to online casinos like these to try and produce a profit from the comfort of their own homes without the use of live horse racing. These particular sites offer a gamstop-free area with all of your favourite casino games on.

Heavy favourite for the Grand National this year is Cloth Cap who has been getting a lot of plaudits from experts throughout the industry and his trainer O’Neil is talking a good game when it comes to this horse. The odds have shorted dramatically in recent times after the recent win in the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase at Newbury and Cloth Cap will be holding out for good ground after some good performances on this ground during this season so far so will be praying for a dry build up to Aintree.

Another horse that we would recommend keeping your eye on in the build-up to the Grand National would be that of Kimberlite Candy who is currently priced at 14/1 to win so is a little outsider for all your punters out there. This will be Kimberlite Candy’s first appearance in the Grand National this year, and this may be why he is priced as he is, but he has showed some impressive form over the fences in the past and is cl-early showing attributes of former Grand National winners. JP McManus has claimed that this is one of the best horses in his stable and at the age of 9, he might just be coming into his prime.

And finally, Any Second Now, who is currently second favourite for the Grand National and priced at 10/1 is a 9-year-old horse with a trainer who has a seriously impressive record at the Grand National in T M Walsh. Last year, Any Second Now was one of the hot favourites for the Grand National 2020 before it was cancelled but we believe with the extra year of training that he might have improved further.
