Grand National Tips
We are advocates of learning lessons from the past when trying to find the winners of the future. Experience counts in the Grand National and 18 of the last 22 winners (including 11 of the last 13) were aged either 9, 10 or 11. In that period there have also been three eight-year-old and one twelve-year-old winner. The last teenager to win the race was over 90 years ago (Sergeant Murphy in 1923), although 13-year-old Vics Canvas was a gallant 3rd in 2016 at odds of 100/1.
