Here are the top 6 places from the bookmakers' point of view. In addition‚ we'll examine the odds on the remaining runners and the betting markets.
Sam Waley-Cohen rides 50-1 outsider Noble Yeats to win 174th Grand National
After riding a number of horses over the years‚ a 39-year-old amateur jockey has won the prestigious race on the Irish horse Noble Yeats. The horse's trainer is Emmet Mullins‚ whose father owns Noble Yeats. The victory makes Waley-Cohen the first seven-year-old to win the Grand National since Bogskar in 1940. The win was a great moment for Sam Waley-Cohen‚ who has won the Grand National seven times. Although the horse was only a four-year-old when it made its fences debut in October‚ it had raced as recently as 14 months ago. Waley-Cohen announced his retirement two days earlier. Before he rode Noble Yeats in the Grand National‚ he'd been dreaming of that day‚ and it was great to see him do it in front of fans. Waley-Cohen wore his father's colours‚ indicating his support for the race. The winning jockey‚ Sam Waley-Cohen‚ drove Noble Yeats to victory‚ beating Any Second Now by three lengths. Waley-Cohen spoke of his pride after the win‚ mentioning his late brother Thomas who died of cancer in his early 20s. The race was marred by controversy. A false start led to the 1993 Grand National being declared void. Three horses were killed during the festival‚ including Up For Review and Discorama. The 2020 Grand National was also cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. In its place‚ the race will be held in Dublin. There will be a virtual race‚ which will take place on the same day‚ on May 18.
Minella Times falls early
The second favourite‚ Minella Times‚ falls early at Aintree on Sunday. The 12-year-old is ridden by Rachael Blackmore. She has won the race once before‚ and is hoping to win it again this time. Minella Times is one of several fancied horses in this year's Grand National field. Other notable contenders include Any Second Now‚ Escaria Ten‚ Snow Leopardess‚ and Longhouse Poet. Minella Time was the runner-up last year‚ but a recent incident has left her disappointed. After a disappointing season‚ she has now pulled up at Leopardstown. She was expected to be better and is at 14-1 odds. However‚ Michael O'Leary has withdrawn his horse Tiger Roll‚ which had the same handicap as Minella Times. Minella Times has a chance to make amends at Aintree‚ but the racecourse has changed a bit since she won. This is a major blow for the runner-up. She had been unseated in the recent Cross Country Chase. However‚ she will now return to the race with the benefit of a fresh foal. While it's true that the fences at Aintree aren't as good as they used to be‚ clouting can still cost you a win. That's why the race will be crucial for her form. After the race‚ the 172nd Grand National was a close call. Minella Times‚ ridden by Rachad Blackmore‚ fell at Valentine's Brook fence early‚ making the odds a huge mismatch. Snow Leopardess pulled up before the second circuit‚ and Minella Times fell early at the infamous course. The 174th Grand National will be staged at Aintree.
Discorama suffers fatal injury at Aintree
The jockey of the 2022 Grand National Discorama has died in the first race of the day. The grey mare pulled up lame on the run-in to the last fence. Discorama had a pelvic injury‚ which was untreatable. The injury is the third fatality at Aintree in as many years. Trainer Paul Nolan confirmed the news to the press. The horse's trainer and jockey‚ Paul Nolan‚ have confirmed that Discorama died at Aintree due to an 'untreatable' injury. The injury occurred during the iconic Grand National race on Saturday. Discorama's trainer confirmed the news to the media via social media. The horse is the third Grand National casualty of the festival this year. The first fatality occurred on Friday‚ while the second occurred Saturday. After the second race at Aintree‚ Discorama's owner‚ Paul Nolan‚ was very disappointed by the result. Despite finishing seventh last year‚ Discorama was running out of steam in the final stages and was unable to keep pace with the other horses. Nolan has rewarded Discorama with an extra pound for 2021. The trainer is realistic about the chances of the horse. Overall‚ 86 horses have died at the Grand National‚ with about half of those being injured. However‚ the safety record of the race has improved with an ongoing focus on welfare. The race's fatality rate is only 0.2%‚ thanks to the ongoing investment in the welfare of the animals at the racecourse. The BHA's equine health and welfare director David Sykes said that this is the lowest fatality rate since 2000.
Bookies pay out on top six places
Unlike in previous years‚ bookmakers now pay out on the top six places in the Grand National. The first time this was done was in 2011 when BetVictor paid out on the sixth place of The Midnight Runner‚ a 15/8 chance. Other bookmakers followed suit in 2013‚ with Swing Bill‚ 80/1‚ paying out at 20/1‚ and Chance Du Roy‚ 33/1‚ each paying out 8/1. Usually‚ bookmakers will pay out on the top six places in the Grand National 2022. However‚ other races have different payouts‚ depending on the number of runners. The fewer horses‚ the less likely it is that you'll be paid for more than three places. As a result‚ it's important to know which places count as each-way winners. In the Grand National‚ bookmakers pay out on the first six places of each horse. If you're new to betting on horse races‚ you can sign up with a bookmaker offering a free bet if you bet on the top six places. Bookmakers have a special section of their website dedicated to the Grand National. You can deposit using a number of methods. Some bookmakers will give you a free bet if you bet on Saturday. The best bets to make in the Grand National are Minella Times‚ who has been a multiple winner at the Aintree racecourse. She could also be the third woman to win the race. Other contenders include Any Second Now‚ Snow Leopardess‚ Delta Work‚ and Eclair Surf. You can use each-way betting to win big‚ or bet on the best chance of winning.
