Grand National 2021 Favourites

| January 20, 2021

After the 2020 Grand National’s cancellation, there are four horses expected to figure up high in the market for those who will bet on Grand National 2021 in different sites. The betting market is already starting to get heated as different teams continue preparing for the 2021 Aintree Grand National. Here’s everything horse racing punters will need before wagering on the 2021 Grand national.

Who to Bet on

With the 2021 Grand National expected to run smoothly, every fan is wondering whom they’ll wager on. That will make you wonder who the Grand National’s favorites are this year. Here are the top four horses that have proven to be worth a wager on the Grand National this year. 

Tiger Roll

Tiger Roll is the first back-to-back champion since the 70s, after managing to take the title in 2018 and 2019. The horse currently assumes the bookies’ favorite position in the 2021 Grand National, with his trainer, Gordon Elliot working hard to train the 11-year-old to grab the victory again. But can this Irish gelding record history by being the first horse to win three Grand National titles in a row?

According to his trainer, the horse will be ready to accomplish this feat, which is the main reason why Tiger Roll is the bookmaker’s favorite. His coach is also a three-time Grand National winner. However, a few are still not convinced, considering that Tiger Roll didn’t return to action in November at the Cheltenham Cross Country race. That got many fans thinking that maybe the glory days of tiger Rolls are over, and he may not be risked in another race. 

Burrows Saints

With 40 runners expected to line up in the 2021 Grand National tournament, Burrow Saints is yet another favorite for the bookmakers. Trained by Willie Mullins, Burrow Saints won the 2005 Grand National with Hedgehunter, and he might be a big player in the Grand National this year if he’ll run. Burrows won the 2019 Irish National, and he’s young enough (8 years) to keep improving. 

Potters Corner

Another main stayer currently in training, the Christian Williams trained horse, already has a national pedigree after winning the Welsh National and Midlands National in 2019. Potters also got better in November, grabbing a decent third in the Cheltenham Cross Country Race. During this race, Potters also showed that he could handle tricky fences, something that comes in handy for the Aintree Grand National.

Anibale Fly

This 11-year-old gelding was fifth in the 2019 Grand National after ranking fourth in 2017. But can he reach his prime this year and place high? However, Annibale’s proven Grand National track record is a huge asset, and hopefully, he’ll have less weight to carry if he’ll run this year. The horse runs a top-second during the 2019 Cheltenham Gold Cup, and a similar route looks highly [possible on the 2021 Grand National cards.
