Grand National – Saturday 13th April
Our tipster did land last year’s winner Corach Rambler, and he’ll be confident of another profitable race in 2024. Get our Grand National tips and predictions here.
1.45 – Jonbon
The 2023 Grand National is due off at 5.15pm on Saturday as the three-day festival meeting reaches its climax. It has already been a great week for Trainer Nicky Henderson who landed a big race double on day 1 with Shishkin and Constitution Hill. He can add another victory when Jonbon runs in the opening Maghull Novices’ Chase.
2.25 – An Tailliur
Good Time Jonny put up an extraordinary performance to win the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham, swooping through on the inside from a seemingly hopeless position. He has gone up 5lbs and the faster ground could enable An Tailliur, sixth at Cheltenham, to turn the tables.
3.00 – Letsbeclearaboutit
The Mersey Novices’ Hurdle looks wide open with Cheltenham winner You Wear It Well and the progressive Springwell Bay among the leading contenders. Irish raider Letsbeclearaboutit travelled strongly for a long way in the Albert Bartlett and is given a tentative vote at this shorter trip.
3.35 – Champ
The Liverpool Hurdle is virtually a re-run of the Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham, won by 33-1 outsider Sire Du Berlais. That looked quite a gruelling contest and this could be an opportunity for Champ to roll back the years.
4.15 – Castle Robin
The William Hill Handicap Chase looks even more competitive and a chance is taken with Castle Robin, one of the few in the field with form over three miles.
5.15 – Corach Rambler
Corach Rambler could start favourite for the Grand National for Scottish Trainer Lucinda Russell. He won the Ultima Chase at Cheltenham for the second consecutive season and is officially 10lbs well in at the weights. There is plenty of confidence behind Delta Work after his win in the Cross Country at Cheltenham and he is fancied to improve on his third place finish last year. Runner-up Any Second Now is also back at Aintree but could be anchored by top weight. Jockey Davy Russell seeks a fairy-tale end to his riding career aboard Galvin who will love the drying ground.

Grand National Day 1 Tips – Thursday 11th April
Read on for our Grand National Thursday tips which will be revealed right here before day one gets underway.
1.45pm – Stage Star
The 2023 Grand National Festival meeting gets under way on Thursday with a top quality card featuring four Grade 1 races. Stage Star ended a two-year Cheltenham Festival drought for Trainer Paul Nicholls when making all the running to win the Turners Novices’ Chase. He has just four rivals in the opening event and may have most to fear from Banbridge.
2.20pm – Zenta
Cheltenham Triumph Hurdle form is put to the test in the Anniversary Juvenile Hurdle where Zenta is the likely favourite. He finished third to stable companion Lossiemouth and a repeat of that performance ought to be good enough.
2.55pm – Ahoy Senor
The £250,000 Aintree Bowl looks an intriguing contest with three Cheltenham Gold Cup runners joined by Ryanair Chase runner-up Shishkin. Conflated finished third at Cheltenham while Ahoy Senor and A Plus Tard failed to finish. Ahoy Senor came down in front when still travelling strongly, hampering A Plus Tard in the process. If Lucinda Russell’s gelding can get his jumping together he will be tough to beat.
3.30pm – Constitution Hill
The Aintree Hurdle should be a formality for impressive Champion Hurdle winner Constitution Hill. Nicky Henderson’s stable star comfortably defeated his three main market rivals at Cheltenham and it is difficult to see any reason for the form to be overturned on Thursday. Official ratings give Constitution Hill 16lbs in hand of Zanahiyr.
4.05pm – Winged Leader
The first race of the week over the famous Grand National fences is the Foxhunters’ Open Hunters’ Chase. Winged Leader, runner-up in the Cheltenham Foxhunters in 2022, is preferred to Its On The Line and Famous Clermont.
4.40pm – Douglas Talking
Whatever the fate of Ahoy Senor in the Aintree Bowl, Lucinda Russell has a leading candidate in the Red Rum Handicap Chase in the progressive Douglas Talking. He has been raised a stone by the handicapper for his effortless stroll to victory at Sandown but he is still preferred to top weight Third Time Lucki.

Grand National Day 2 Tips – Friday 12th April
Find our Grand National Friday tips and predictions here, before the off.
1.45 – Gerri Colombe
Day 2 of the 2023 Grand National Festival meeting opens with the Grade 1 Mildmay Novices’ Chase over three miles. Gerri Colombe and Bronn finished second and third in the Brown Advisory at Cheltenham last month and could fight out the finish here. The former just gets the verdict and could provide soon-to-be retired jockey Davy Russell with an emotional victory.
2.20 – Camprond and No Ordinary Joe (both each-way)
The William Hill Handicap Hurdle looks wide open but owner JP McManus has two live contenders in Camprond and No Ordinary Joe, both in the frame at Cheltenham.
2.55 – Altobelli and Hullnback (both each-way)
Supreme Hurdle fourth Inthepocket is the form horse in the Top Novices’ Hurdle. There are others with a little more scope for improvement here and the each-way selections here are Altobelli and Hullnback.
3.30 – Hitman
The featured Melling Chase at 3.30 sees Fakir D’Oudairies attempt a third successive victory in the race. He was well below his best at Ascot in February and preference is just for Hitman, a fine third in the Ryanair Chase last time.
4.05 – Ashtown Lad
The Topham Handicap Chase is the second race of the week over the daunting Grand National fences. Course form is invaluable here and Becher Chase winner Ashtown Lad should go well, despite dropping back in trip.
4.40 – Maximilian
The final televised race of the day is the Sefton Novices’ Hurdle at 4.40. Stay Away Fay was a gutsy winner of the Albert Bartlett Hurdle at Cheltenham but had previously been beaten by Maximilian at Doncaster. The latter is a fresh horse and can confirm the form on Friday.

What are the odds on the Grand National?
The average odds of a winning Grand National horse are around 20/1 – while 25 of the last 32 Grand National winners returned a double-figure price.
Until recently, it was commonly assumed that horses carrying over 11 stone never win. This allowed punters to rule out a decent slice of the entrants. However, this trend is showing signs of reversal in recent years, not least in 2015 when Many Clouds carried the monster weight of 11st 9lb to victory, while since 2009 we’ve had six Grand National winners carry 11st or more in weight.
