If you’re not thinking about the Grand National, you should be, although we’ll let you off if the Cheltenham Festival betting markets are taking up most of your time at the moment.
Those new to Ladbrokes can sign up here for a free Grand National bet worth £25 and punters should be casting an eye on the Cheltenham Festival winners who are likely to perform at Aintree’s Grand National meeting.
Ante post betting is a great way to maximize value from the Grand National odds, and with 30 horses currently in the Ladbrokes ante post Grand National betting market, there is plenty of choice for the punter.
Last year’s Grand National winner, Don’t Push It, provided 15-time champion jockey AP McCoy with his first ever Grand National success and there is sure to be plenty of money on the Jonjo O’Neill-trained star (14/1 favourite for the Grand National) come April 9th.
Don’t Push It was sent off the 10/1 joint favourite last year and punters can maximize their return by backing Don’t Push It now at 14/1.
Welsh National winner Synchronised is 20/1 in the Grand National betting and following his victory at Chepstow earlier in the year, he’s certainly a horse to keep an eye on.
With Grand National odds of 16/1, Niche Market is second favourite in the ante post Grand National betting market and after being pulled up in last year’s race, connections of the horse will be hoping for a stronger performance this time around.
Further down the ante post Grand National betting market are Frankie Figg, Royal Rosa and Can’t Buy Time who all have Grand National odds of 50/1, but Can’t Buy Time went off at 33/1 in last year’s race proving that punters can find better value in the ante post markets.
A £25 stake on Chief Dan George winning the Grand National would return £1,025. New customers can sign up here for a free Grand National bet worth £25.
