The world’s most famous horse race is just weeks away, so now is the time to swot up on the runners and get ready to bet on the Grand National 2018.

Current favourite

Last year’s race saw One for Arthur romp to victory, ridden by Derek Fox. However, the eight-year-old won’t be back this year to defend his title, due to an injury.

Blaklion is the current favourite after winning the Becher Chase over Grand National fences in December. Total Recall is also on good form and among the front runners, as is Cause Of Causes who came second in the Grand National last year.

So who will your money be on? If (like us!) you tend to pick the prettiest pony, why not do your homework this year before you place your bets.
