Every year the Grand National captures the imagination of punters all across the world and millions of people read all the Grand National tips and flock to their local bookies to place a bet on racing’s most famous spectacle.
The four-mile war is the most daunting punting puzzle on the calendar and finding the winner is almost as challenging as the National course itself. Every year, horse racing fanatics spend hours on end ploughing through the form on offer trying to get an edge on the layers in the ante post market only to see their horse shirk away from the gruelling marathon and the unforgiving Aintree fences.
Not only is it the most difficult race of the year to pick a winner, it also represents the perfect opportunity for the bookies to strangle any value out of the market and the starting prices of the horses at the head of the betting are often far shorter than they should be.
This is why so many racing fans now turn to the essential Grand National tips which give them a fighting chance of winning the war with the bookmakers on National day.
More often than not National watchers end up paying for the bookmaker’s summer jaunts with wild bets and uneducated guesses on the outcome of one of the most challenging races of the entire season, but with expert tips and previews, once-a-year racing punters can gain an edge on bookmaker pitches all over Aintree.
In 2014, Dr Richard Newland saw Pineau de Re battle to a sensational victory for his trainer and it was a result that went down incredibly well with the masses of supporters that had opted to side with Pinea de Re at 33/1 following the Saturday morning’s Grand National tips.
RacingTips.com editor Nick Wilby believes that there could be another shock this year and he believes punters need to be shrewder than ever.
Wilby commented: “Shutthefrontdoor and AP McCoy are sure to go off favourite for this year’s National, but race fans will be aware that there are forty horses going to post and there are chances everywhere you look.
“Last year’s winner came out of the blue and although a few Grand National experts had picked out the horse it still came as a bit of a shock. This year our tipsters are working overtime to make sure that the 2015 Grand National is a profitable race.”
