With the 2013 Grand National rapidly approaching many are now wondering where exactly they should put their bets. Seabass, On His Own, Sunnyhillboy and Cappa Bleu are all gaining their followers and the betting markets are ever changing as more money goes on each of the horses.
Surprisingly, odds for On His Own have been moving out from the 6/1 he was last week. He went to 7/1 and is now 15/2 with Paddy Power Bookmakers and he is joined by Soll who’s odds shortened rapidly from their original 66/1 when punters thought he might get a run. As short as 33/1 at the start of the week he’s back out to 40/1 now as he’s still not certain to line-up on Saturday.
All other National Race odds are shortening including Rare Bob who is now 20/1 from 25/1 and the biggest drop has been for Tatenen who previously was a whopping 100/1 is now slightly better at 66/1.

Favourites for 2013 such as Seabass, Join Together and Imperial Commander are also going short as trainers and connections update on how fantastically well their charges are doing this week and with the news that the course is being watered so the going is Good or Good-Soft, horses that fancy that type of ground are having more than their fair share of money on them.
Ultimately with this particular horse race, it’s never as easy to simply pick a winner based on form as so much can and probably will happen over the nine or so minutes it takes to run it. The long shot horses don’t come in very often that’s why they tend to be remembered and as fancied as some favourites are, they don’t win as often as you think – only 11 from the last 100 years of the race.
Ordinarily the winners tend to be around the 20/1 mark, have a good solid record and hopefully if you don’t manage to pick a winner based on their odds, you’l at least back a high priced one that comes in the top 5 so you get a result from your each-way bet!
