THE 2015 GRAND NATIONAL
The Crabbie’s Grand National in 2015 will be the most watched steeplechase in the world. It’s the race that young and old love to have a flutter on. Full of history, it’s packed with thrills, spills and unbeatable excitement. It’s the one trophy all jockeys and trainers want to win.
The appeal of the Grand National lies in the difficulty of the race itself and with such a demanding course the chances of a favourite winning are pretty slim.
With so many beaten favourites the race is perfect for those of us who prefer to stick £5 eachway on a longshot. Who hasn’t dreamed of backing a 100/1 outsider like Mon Mome or 66/1 shot like Auroras Encore?
In the last hundred years only eleven favourites have won the race – In the same time period 5 horses have returned victorious at 100/1!
If you’re looking for a horse to back this year try our guide to picking a winner. It gives you detailed trends for the race over the last 20 years but if you prefer picking a horse by name, number or the jockey onboard then check out the full list of Runners (Click Here).
Who will land the biggest prize in racing on April 11th 2015? A favourite or a long shot? A Champion Trainer or a small yard? Whatever the outcome, no other race can live up to the excitement of the National.
