It is that time of year again when horse racing tips will be flying around the country and when millions and millions of British folk head off for their annual trip to the Bookmakers office to place their Grand National bets.

Grand National Tips of course will surface for any given reason; it could be the name of the horse, the colours of the jockey’s silks, the jockey themselves or even the trainers. There will be an understandable reason why any tip is forthcoming.

The truth is however, that it is an almost impossible race to predict and before making any bet, punters should be aware that the first horse to ever win the Grand National was appropriately named ‘Lottery’ which is of course exactly what the Grand National is.

The Grand National first and foremost is a thrill a second race, it is one of the great sporting highlights on the British calendar, but it is also a handicap race, meaning that, in theory, the Grand National Runners should all come across the line together. That of course has no chance of happening in reality, but it does mean that any of the 40 horses can win.

Probably the best idea when looking for a Grand National winner is to follow the recent trends of the race. A tip can be based on any one of these trends, but when all of these trends are all thrown in the mix, they will at least narrow the field down to a realistic selection. Therefore the winner is likely to:

a. Be aged 8-11.

b. Have a Handicap rating of above 135.

c. Carry no more than 11st 5lb.

d. Have won at least one race over 3 miles.

e. Have had the benefit of plenty of Chase experience.

f. Have won a Graded Chase within the last two years.

Applying these trends is simple; the information on every horse is available online via the race cards and horse profiles. It just takes a little time to analyse them but it will be time well spent if the Grand National winner is to be found at decent Grand National Odds especially should you avail of the Online Free Bets on offer from the major UK and Irish Bookmakers.
