Age of the Grand National Winner

The horse that has won the Grand National eight times out of the last nine years has been aged between 8 and 10 years. This should give you your first National tip to help narrow down your shortlist.

Weight carried by your Grand National selection

This factor becomes increasingly more significant when the ground is very soft.

Course Experience

Now look at your new shortlist and you will have narrowed down your selection to about 25 runners, then look at those horses that have run over the course and have run well, this will again help to reduce your shortlist.

More often now the main contenders have been given a special build up to the race and go for a horse that is reasonably fresh and has not had too many hard races prior to the Grand National.

Top Trainers and Jockeys

Look out for horses that have been trained by certain trainers, such as Jonjo O'Neill, Willie Mullins, Paul Nicholls and of Course A P McCoy, Ruby Walsh, Timmy Murphy, Richard Johnson and Barry Geraghty.
