Who will win Grand National 2024?

No one can guarantee the Grand National 2024 winner, but we can help you whittle down the field.

Corach Rambler, the 2023 Grand National winnerhas dominated the ante-post market in the months before the meeting, but is now being challenged for favouritism by I Am Maximus as the race approaches. If Lucinda Russell can successfully guide her runner to back-to-back Grand National wins, he’ll join an exclusive club alongside iconic equine greats like Red Rum and Tiger Roll. 

If you prefer to back an outsider, you can review all the options using our complete Grand National runners list. Plenty of eye-catching horses hold entries, including Aintree stalwart Noble Yeats, who won the big race in 2022. Mahler Mission and Limerick Lace are two horses that have attracted support during the 2024 Grand National Festival, and both their odds continue to fall as we get closer to Saturday’s marquee contest.

Grand National 2024 tips & predictions

Our tipster correctly selected the 2023 Grand National winner, Corach Rambler, and is already having a profitable meeting at the 2024 Festival. He correctly picked Langer Dan as an each-way selection on Thursday, the Skelton runner finished third and was just whiskers away from winning. He followed that by tipping Arizona Cardinal in Friday’s Topham Chase, who won at an SP of 20/1! You can find his Grand National Saturday tips for the Liverpool Chase and the big one below!

Grand National – Saturday 13th April

3.05pm – Liverpool Hurdle

This looks like another open contest, but we like Hiddenvalley Lake. A winner on his last appearance at Navan, this Henry de Bromhead runner beat Sire Du Berlais, who is looking to win this race for the third time in a row. Missing Cheltenham means he should arrive at Aintree fresher than his rivals.

Our Tip –  Hiddenvalley Lake – 7/1

4.00pm – Grand National

There’s a reason last year’s winner, Corach Rambler, has dominated the ante-post market for much of the year. He’s got a real chance of retaining his crown, and his impressive run in the Cheltenham Gold Cup was a very positive sign. 

Limerick Lace looks like a great E/W gamble. She’s been in impressive form this season, winning three of her four runs. Winning the Mares Chase at Cheltenham in front of favourite Teahupoo is an excellent sign she’ll run well at Aintree.

Meetingofthewaters is the best of the Willie Mullins contingent in this year’s Grand National. Despite being a youngster, his third place in the Ultima at the Cheltenham Festival shows he possesses the grit needed to go well in the Grand National.

Delta Work would have preferred more rain than we’ve seen, but the ground may still be to his liking. Gordon Elliott has been talking up this runner’s chances, and given that he finished third in the 2022 National, he’s a definite each-way play.

Our Top 4 Tips – Corach Rambler – 7/1, Limerick Lace (E/W) – 14/1, Meetingofthewaters – 12/1, Delta Work (E/W) – 20/1

Grand National Day 1 Tips – Thursday 11th April

2.55pm – William Hill Bowl – Grade 1

Thursday’s Aintree Bowl is filled with big-name horses and looks to be an extremely competitive contest. Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up Gerri Colombe is the favourite. However, last year’s winner, Shishkin, is our fancy at a slightly bigger price. His late withdrawal at Cheltenham may prove to be a blessing in disguise for trainer Nicky Henderson, as the 10-year-old could be fresher than many of his rivals.

Our TipShishkin – 3/1

3.30pm – Aintree Hurdle – Grade 1

The Aintree Hurdle will be another competitive race on Thursday, with Bob Olinger and Impaire Et Passe heading the betting market. Langer Dan looks like a decent e/w play after his second consecutive Coral Cup win at the Cheltenham Festival. This will be his first contest at the Grade 1 level, but represents real value at his current price. 

Our Tip – Langer Dan (E/W) – 10/1

Grand National Day 2 Tips – Friday 12th April

3.30pm – Melling Chase – Grade 1

The Melling Chase is shaping up to be one of the most competitive races of the Grand National Festival this year. A case can be made for several of the big-name runners, but our preference is to stick with Last year’s winner, Pic D’Orhy. Paul Nicolls has kept him off track since claiming the impressive scalp of L’Homme Presse at Ascot in February, so he should arrive at Aintree fresher than his rivals. 

Our TipPic D’Orhy – 10/3

4.05pm – Topham Chase – Grade 3

Arizona Cardinal looks good value at a double-digit price. The 8-year-old comes to Aintree on the back of two wins, the most recent of which was a magnificent performance. Given the competitive field, this will undoubtedly be his biggest test to date, but Stuart Edmunds trained horses have performed well recently. The size of the Topham Chase field makes him a solid each-way gamble.

Our Tip – Arizona Cardinal (E/W) – 12/1

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.
