2021 Randox Grand National betting guide and odds - Cloth Cap set to go off as the red-hot favourite
Cloth Cap set to go off as the red-hot favourite

In the betting world, all eyes will be on Merseyside this Saturday as Aintree Racecourse gets ready for the Randox Grand National. Cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the biggest race in European horse racing returns in 2021 and we at freebet.com will run the rule over some of the horses in with a chance of etching their names into National Hunt racing folklore. The Grand National is more than just a horse racing, it is a sporting institution here in the UK and with hundreds of millions wagered every year on the race, we bring you the latest odds courtesy of our betting partners, Paddy Power. The popular Irish bookmakers are paying out each-way on the National for the first six places.

Market leaders

The Jonjo O’Neill-trained, Cloth Cap, is likely to go off at one of the shortest-priced favourites in a long time on Saturday and he is certainly the one to beat. Preparation has been perfect for the market leader, winning the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury before landing a listed race at Kelso in March.

Next in the betting is Willie Mullins’ Burrows Saint. Winner of the 2019 Irish National, Burrows Saint certainly has the potential to land the English equivalent however he was behind stablemate, Acapella Bourgeois at Fairyhouse in February. Jockey, Patrick Mullins, hopes to become the first-ever amateur jockey to win the Grand National and is bullish about his prospects.

Mullins explained, “He's in great form and he ticks a lot of the boxes. He's the right age, he has the right kind of weight, he's progressive, he's only had nine runs over fences and I'm really excited to be sitting on him.”

Cheltenham Festival star, Rachel Blackmore will be out to create her own piece of Grand National history as she hopes to become the first female jockey to saddle the winner. Blackmore will be on board Minella Times for Henry de Bromhead and given her immense popularity, casual bettors may drive her price even shorter between now and race time. 

An outside chance

With so many each-way places on offer, you may be tempted to opt for a horse at a slightly bigger price. Burrows Saint conqueror, Acapella Bourgeois, could be tempting at 20/1 but he will be hoping the ground softens between now and Saturday. Triumph Hurdle winner, Farclas, will be in with an excellent chance if he stays. Jack Kennedy is on board following the withdrawal of 2018 and 2019 winner, Tiger Roll. Despite his advancing years, 12-year old, Takingrisks is probably over-priced at 25/1. Priced at 40/1 at the beginning of the week, this price is likely to shorten further on Saturday. Takingrisks got the better of hot favourite, Cloth Cap in the 2019 Scottish National and also claimed Doncaster’s Sky Bet Chase in January. Stamina is not a concern and he has successfully finished 13 consecutive chase starts therefore he has to be expected to finish the race.
