2022 Grand National Tips
Horses Tipped For The Aintree Glory | Saturday 9th April 2022
Winner of the Welsh National in December 2019, Potters Corner also won the Midlands Grand National back in March. A runner with buckets of stamina but may need the ground on the softer side to show his true potential in the 2021 Grand National.
Stamina in bucket loads and one of the few runners who regularly runs over the longer distances. Was 2nd in the Becher Chase so clearly likes the Grand National fences, won last time out and has never fallen or unseated his jockey.
Winner of the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase in November, Cloth Cap is another very exciting prospect and one that could give owner Trevor Hemmings another Grand National win in 2021.
Came third in the Welsh National under jockey Bryony Frost and followed that success with a win at Taunton. The gutsy eleven-year-old that stays all day.

Discover the amazing story behind
the 100/1 winner.
Past winners of the race have statistically 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 of 8 and 11 years old. In the last ten years, all winners have come from this age group.
The weight a horse carries is a very 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.
Also, look at a horse’s form and pay close attention to jumping ability. Though entry criteria stipulate that a horse must have placed in the top 4 in a race of 3 miles or more at least once, those that consistently place should be favoured.
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.
