As we enter the final week of betting on the great race one thing punters must be aware of is the Grand National Odds.
Look for the value and don’t take SP on the day!
The five day declarations will be available on the 31st March and from that point onwards the odds of fancied runners will start reducing dramitically.So whilst there is a danger in taking prices now (see the painful stories re Royal Auclair on other threads) there are a number of bookies offering non-runner no bet at this stage and most runners have been confirmed as likely or doubtful by their connections.
Perhaps it is a risk but horses such as D’Argent, Patsy Hall and L’Ami all potentially could receive a lot of support between now and next Saturday and it certainly won’t pay in leaving backing your selection until the day. Shop around with some of the major firms and make sure you get the value and not the shortened starting price.
