Write an article for Grand National Blog

The National Hunt season is slowly moving into gear and that means our thoughts will turn to the 2017 Grand National.

We have a wealth of knowledge here on Grand National Blog and we’d like to give our contributors the chance to write an article on the Grand National that we will post on this site.

If you would be interested in writing a Grand National themed post then please send your completed article to me at the following address:

darren@olbg.com

Unfortunately we won’t be able to add them all to the site but we will publish up to three articles from different contributors as long as they meet the standards we are looking for. As long as the content is Grand National based we will consider all articles so if you want to explore trends and stats in more detail for this year’s Grand National or want to wax lyrical about your favourite Grand National horse from the past we will be happy to hear from you. Other possible themes could be the recent changes to the Grand National fences or trainers and jockeys to follow in the Grand National etc etc.

Please remember we need to remain objective and we can’t print anything that is inflammatory or may cause offence.

I don’t want to add too many other restrictions but please try and keep your submissions relatively short as we want them to appeal to the casual blog reader as well.

We may even be able to throw in a prize for the article we like the most!

We reserve the right to edit your submissions in any way we see fit. If you are not happy with that please don’t send an entry in.

If you have any questions please email at the above address.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks
Darren

Horses to follow in the 2016/17 National Hunt Season

The wealth of knowledge our contributors on Grand National Blog make it the number one source of statistics and analysis for anyone who is serious about trying to back the winner of the world’s greatest race.

The National Hunt season is starting to wind itself now up as the nights start to draw in and this weekend’s meeting at Chepstow will definitely see an improvement in the quality of horses on view. With that in mind I thought it would be a good idea to tap in to our loyal band of Grand National experts and see if they can turn their hand to highlighting some horses to follow for the fledgling new season.

It would be great if our contributors could add a few (let’s say no more than five to begin with) horses they expect to show a profit in the months to follow. These can be anything from well bred bumper horses, to novices you expect to take high rank or even experienced horses who you feel are well handicapped.

I’ll update a list of any suggestions at the end of this thread for easy reference.

Why not let us know your horses to follow and the horse that returns the best level stakes profit from Saturday 8th Ocotber until Bet365 Gold Cup day will win a prize – more details on the prize to follow – so get adding your stable of winners for 2016/17.
