The 2020 Grand National weights were revealed today and unsurprisingly it is Tiger Roll who has been handed top weight of 11-10 along with stablemate Delta Work. With Delta Work almost certainly guaranteed to go to the Cheltenham Gold Cup, it leaves Tiger Roll on his own at the top. There has been a huge amount of talk regarding Tiger Roll’s participation in the 2020 Grand National. So will O’Leary stick to his guns and withdraw the double winner?

If so that would leave Bristol De Mai to carry the mantle. Currently priced at 20/1, he has been allocated 11-08, down 2lbs on last year’s top weight. Ultimately he didn’t run in that race. Not far behind him on 11-06 is the Gold Cup winner Native River. Again, he is likely to have another shot at Cheltenham and historically he has not run again in the season following the Gold Cup. Will connections break that tradition and send him to Aintree?

Grand National stalwart, Anibale Fly looks set to return to the Aintree fences on April 4th 2020. Fourth in 2018 and fifth last season, the 11-02 he has been handed looks very good considering he ran off top weight last year and still finished 5th. Following on from them is Aso from Venetia Williams, Cadmium (who has yet to qualify) from Willie Mullins, Elegant Escape and Top Ville Ben all of whom have been given 11-02. Rounding off the high weights are Beware The Bear and Chris’s Dream, both on 11-00.

Last year it was Just A Par, originally number 77 on the list of entries, that took the final place in the line-up. Usually, those in position number 75 or below, when the weights come, out rarely make the cut. Will the runners for the 2020 Grand National be any different?

2020 Grand National Weights

There are a few potential runners that have done well out of the weights. Last year’s second-place finisher, Magic Of Light, has been given 10-12. Yala Enki, the possible ride for Bryony Frost, is on 10-11. 2017 winner One For Arthur is on a very winnable 10-02 with Becher Chase winner, Walk In The Mill on 10-04.

Believe it or not, the Grand National 2020 is still a very open race. Yes, it would be great if Tiger Roll could make history and win three in a row but there are a lot of really good challengers. The weights that have been given out have definitely boosted the chances of more than one or two of them so expect plenty of racing betting offers as the National draws ever closer.

Between now and April 4th, the 103 remaining entries will be whittled down to just 40. The first scratchings deadline is February 25 with the second scratchings deadline on March 17. The five-day confirmation stage is March 30. And the final declarations will be at 10am on April 2.
