Grand National Free Bet
Having access to a Grand National free bet is a great way to potentially turn little into a decent sum of money. With 40 Grand National runners guaranteed to line up at Aintree for the steeplechase, it is almost guaranteed that some big prices will be on offer.
Because of the large number of runners, it is typical that a favourite in the Grand National betting will go off no shorter than 8/1, while in most cases the market leader is a double-figure price. Therefore, placing a Grand National free bet on the favourite can still result in a good return.
Two choices for a Grand National free bet
The big dilemma when it comes to utilising a Grand National free bet is whether to play it safe or take a risk. As the bet is free, many punters will simply hope to maximise profits as much as potentially possible. This means that the punters may ignore the favourites and rely on one of the more unfancied runners. Silver Birch and Mon Mome are among the more recent Grand National winners and were priced at 33/1 and 100/1 respectively.
Plenty of outsiders in current Grand National betting
Sticking by a horse that has previous experience of the Grand National fences could be a decent strategy when looking into the Grand National runners. For the coming year, West End Rocker is one who fits this criteria. State Of Play is another and he has finished in the each-way places in three previous Grand Nationals.
