Ladbrokes Grand National specials

| 06.04.2013

Ahead of the Grand National, Ladbrokes have released a range of specials and there are some particularly eye catching bets.

We previously looked at JP McManus’ chances of winning the race and 5/1 looks to be great value for one of the leading owner’s charges to reign victorious.

Don’t Push It won in 2010 and Sunnyhillboy was chinned on the line last year. With the latter running again and new entrants such as Colbert Station, expect to see the green and gold there or thereabouts this time.

In fact, if McManus fails to win, it would be no surprise if the prize money still went back to his home country and it is 5/4 that an Irish-trained horse wins and 16/1 that it is an Irish 1-2-3.

Of the Irish entries, last year’s third, Seabass looks to have a great chance, piloted by Katie Walsh. If Walsh were to win she would become the first woman to win the race and activate our 12/1 for a victorious female jockey.

Indeed the Walsh family have a great chance collectively of Grand National glory. Brother Ruby is on board On His Own while her dad, Ted, is represented by Colbert Station as well as Katie’s ride and Ladbrokes are offering 3/1 for any of those horses to win.

Ruby opted for a Willie Mullins ride this time, but his UK retainer and last year’s winning trainer Paul Nicholls is 12/1 to retain his crown. He is triple handed in this race and Join Together arguably has the best chance after finishing second in last year’s Becher Chase at the track.

Donald McCain is 9/1 to bag National Hunt’s biggest prize and has a trio of excellent chances, including 2011 winner Ballabriggs.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.

No free bet can be claimed between Friday 5th April at 6pm and Saturday 6th April at 6pm.
