HOW WE SELECT OUR TIPS

Tipping a Grand National winner isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible. Many people will tell you that the race is a lottery, which is ironic as the name of the first Grand National winning horse was… LOTTERY!

Past winners of the race have statically fallen into a narrow band of age, weight and form and once you can identify which horses fit the trends you can narrow down the field and look more closely at the horses with a realistic chance of winning.

Focus on horses between the ages for 9 and 11 years old. In the last twenty years the 17 winners have come from this age group.

The weight a horse carries is another important factor as obviously the horses carrying the biggest weights will find it much tougher going than those who carry less. Trends suggest that horses carrying more than 11-03 will struggle around the demanding Aintree course, with 18 of the last 20 winners carrying under that amount.

Also look at a horse’s form, paying close attention to jumping ability with no recent falls. Though entry criteria stipulates that a horse must have placed in the top 4 in a race of 3 miles or more, those that consistently do it are at a bigger advantage.

Once we’ve whittled down the entries using the stats above we are usually left with around 15 horses that fit the bill. From that list we can start selecting our tips and our aim is to give you four or five horses we feel will be in with a shout at the last fence. That’s why we always recommend backing our tips each-way with Paddy Power because they payout on the first five horses home.

Let’s hope we can get the winner for you in 2015!
