2019 Grand National Horse Race

2019 Grand National Horse RaceWhen it comes to horseracing betting, few races attract as much attention as the Grand National. Held every year since 1839, it is one of the most prominent sporting events in Britain, with most of the public watching the race and betting on the outcome. For online sports betting enthusiasts, it offers a great opportunity to win big on one of the most anticipated racing events of the year.

About the Race

The Grand National is one of the oldest National Horse Hunt races in the UK. It is run as a handicap steeplechase over a length of 4 miles and 514 yards with 30 fences (two laps). It also happens to be one of the richest jump races in Europe with a total prize money of over £1 million. The location for the event is the Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England. What makes the Grand National so special is the sheer distance of the race and the size of the fences. Many of the fences are much higher than other National Hunt races, which it has been dubbed as the “ultimate test of horse and rider”.

Dates and Runners

The 2019 Grand National will take place on Saturday the 6th of April. While the final field has yet to be decided, the favourite according to the bookmakers is Tiger Roll who won the 2018 event. Tiger Roll is in great form and is looking to become the first back-to-back winner of the event since Red Run achieved this back in 1973 and 1974. Also in contention is Rathvinden who won the 4m race at the Cheltenham festival. The list of top entries include:

  • Tiger Roll                             11/1
  • Rathvinden                         12/1      
  • Lake View Lad                    16/1

Popular Racing Bets

The above odds will change as the race gets closer. Check out Spin Sports or Bodog for updated pricing. The most popular bet at the Grand National is the race winner. This is a straight wager on the horse to win the race. Due to difficult nature of the event and the sheer length of the course, a placing bet or each way would be a better option.

With a placing bet, you pick one horse to finish anywhere in the money. With an each way bet, you are combining the above two wagers to cover more options. If your horse wins, you get a full payout. However, if you horse just places, you still get paid out a reasonable amount.
