The Irish-bred thoroughbred racehorse Tiger Roll which is the favourite to win this year, with previous two wins, one in Cheltenham Festival and Grand National double last year – the real question could he pull this off again? Tiger Rolls odds are 5/1*.
After being badly hampered at the first fence and being fourth last year in result. Recently improved back in 2018 coming third in the Cheltenham Gold. 2019 weighing could look worse off but for sure a top contender to consider. Anibale Fly’s odd are 11/1*.
One of the very few horses to have won over four miles, which he achieved while taking the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham in 2018. Rathvinder finished fourth in the Champion Novice Chase at Punchestown, which then being put away for a 305-day break and ready for the Grand National Many successful wins and running’s up – another contender to consider. Rathvinder odds are 12-1*.
Welsh and Scottish Nationals top placed handicaps. Having high hopes for this particular horse for the win at the start of the season at Haydock, and then heading to the Welsh National where he unfortunately failed to finish. But fighting back with a third-place finish at Cheltenham in 2018. Soft ground is ideal, but has been runner up on heavy too. Vintage Clouds odds are 14-1*.
A Mark Bradstock trained horse, and possible contender for this year’s Grand National. Winning the Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown with an amazing 13 length’s – With that history there could be a top place in this year Grand National. If the racehorse has the same form which he left off in 2018, then he could be a serious contender. The odds for Step back is 25-1*.
Now being the third time running in the Grand National, Blaklion came in an amazing fourth two years ago, but however last year coming into the race looking great, but unfortunately never made it past first. He won the Becher Chase last year also, in talented style. Moved to Philip Kirby yard and looks great to make his debut for the new owner at the Grand National 2019. The odds for Blaklion are 40-1*.
