The 2013 Grand National is just around the corner. One of the most wagered on horse races of the year will take place at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool on Saturday, but the overall festivities get started tomorrow with the opening day. Then on Friday it is Ladies’ day for the Grand National followed by the big race on Saturday. For all of the information check out the official Grand National page at the Aintree website.
2013 Grand National Odds
The Grand National odds are set and you can check out the full odds at Bet365.com by clicking on Horse Racing and then finding John Smith’s Grand National in the antepost section.
Bet365 has a great promo where bettors get “enhanced place terms” which means that you get paid out on a horse if they finish in the top 5 positions instead of just the top 4 which is common at the other bookies. Here are the odds of some of the favourites for the race:
- On His Own +700
- Seabass +900
- Cappa Bleu +1100
- Colbert Station +1100
- Chicago Grey +1200
- Imperial Commander +1200
- Sunnyhillboy +1400
- Teaforthree +1400
There are the 8 favourites for the race, but with around 40 horses in the race and the unpredictable manner of the Grand National race its really up for grabs until a horse crosses the finish line. Last year Neptune Collonges won it with a starting price of 33/1, which gives you some idea of how the race can be won by anyone.
