Grant National 2024
on: April 08, 2024, 11:05:07 AM
So begins the copy pasta



As per previous years all bookies now have pretty much dumped quarter odds E/W, it seems to be one fifth odds as standard.


(2023 thread here http://www.tekforums.net/general-discussion/grant-national-2023/ )

https://www.oddschecker.com/grand-national/winner <- odds table, remember generally the odds tumble as the event closes in.

Don't bet more than you can afford to lose. The national is quite literally a lottery with so many horses running, the bookies can be "generous" On this event because with such an enormous field and now reduced E/W payouts they still win regardless.

Seems like all the good offers have not been repeated again for this year. I'll probably get bets in soon before the odds have dwindled.

Excellent copy pasta



Two horses I've been told to keep an eye on are Nassalam if it's muddy (romped the Welsh GN) And Kitty's light, both are hardly under the radar and I doubt will offer great odds.

I'm going to wait till later in the week and see if bet365 do the mental match your stake deal again  :worried:

Well, 2nd year no show so it looks like the bet365 mega deal has been consigned to the coffin of history  :thumbdown:

I'll go for a similar format to last year without the deal, aforementioned Kitty's Light is 12/1, too low odds for me.


£5 E/W

Nassalam 20/1
Coko Beach 40/1

£3.50 E/W

Foxy Jacks 66/1
Galvin 33/1
Minella Indo 20/1

£2.50 E/W

Stattler 40/1
Delta Work 25/1

---

Total staked £51


Fingers crossed it's not a repeat of last year, where 4 of the top 6 horses were 12/1 or under :gag:

My original low end shortlist was:

Mahler Mission (16/1)
Noble Yeats (22/1)
Corach Rambler (5/1)
Vanillier (10/1)
I Am Maximus (9/1)
Kittys Light (14/1)
Panda Boy (14/1)

But a lot of the odds tanked anyway in the week (I should have got in sooner tbh), so now I've gone for something more like your bets:

£5 E/W

Nassalam 20/1
Minella Indo 20/1
Delta Work 20/1

£2 E/W

Foxy Jacks 66/1
Coko Beach 40/1
Stattler 40/1
Galvin 33/1
Kitty's Light 12/1

Total staked: £50

Total to return: £868.30 (yeah, right  :lol:)

Big odds changes as usual, what I didn't notice until today is that this year best odds guaranteed only applies to bets made as of 8AM today it just gets worse and worse value wise  :gag:

At least the odds on Coko beach have halved, good value there, so it'll refuse to run now  :D

Oof, for a £50 stake with 4 horses placed, to only get £72 return stinks a bit  :gag:

Still, better than a loss

Similar story, I made a tenner but again can't moan, shame as Indo just ran out of steam (Bennett) At the end.
