Early Betting on the 2019 Grand National

It is always on the day of the Grand National race that punters will finally get around to placing a bet on the horse or horses they think have the very best chances of winning. However, value hunters will be picking out and betting on their selections well in advance of the race starting.

Therefore if you are going to be joining the many millions of people across the globe that are having a bet on this year’s Grand National, then do consider placing your bets early as that is often how you can guarantee some of the best odds available.

As for just where you should be placing a bet on the 2019 Grand National, which by the way is going to be run as always over at the Aintree racecourse on the 6th of April, well BetFred are one betting site many punters do enjoy betting at.

The reason they do is that BetFred have some very generous each-way betting terms which sees and horses finishing in first, second, third or fourth place you have backed each-way being paid out at one quarter the win odds, and you do of course get the full payout odds you took when placing your bet if you each-way selection wins that race too.

Two Current Joint Favourites

Any horse can of course win the Grand National, including those that are deemed to be rank outsiders, but on the ante post betting market over at the BetFred betting site you will find there are two current joint favourites.

It is true and fair to say there is not a lot separating those two horses regarding their form figures and their chances of winning this year and they are both on offer at odds of 10/1 and those horses are Tiger Roll and Rathvinden.

Elegant Escape worth a Bet

One horse that I do feel is a little overpriced currently and as such you are likely to see its odds shortening up as the day of the Grand National approaches is Elegant Escape, and those odds which I do feel are really worth taking on that horse right now are 16/1.

I would never put anybody off backing any horse that they do like the look of and fancy the chances of to win the Grand National for anything could happen in this year’s running of that race.

If you think that it is going to be one of the 20/1 shots they will come out on top then there is a lot to like about each of those horses which for reference are General Principle, Mall Dini, Vintage Clouds and Anibale Fly.

It could be one of the horses being offered at even higher odds that wins the Grand National, and as such do make sure that you take a look over the form figures of horses such as Captain Redbeard, Bristol De Mai, Abolitionist, Ms Parfois and Warriors Tale and Walk In The Mill all that can be backed at odds of 25/1!
