Grand National field confirmed

The 40 horses who will compete in Saturday’s Grand National has been confirmed.

One horse came out of the 2018 Randox Health Grand National at Thursday’s 48-hour declared runners stage – the Nicky Henderson-trained Gold Present, which means that Noel Meade’s Road to Riches runs.

Blaklion is the 9-1 favourite with Coral for Saturday’s Randox Health Grand National, ahead of Tiger Roll at 10-1, following the final declarations for the world famous steeplechase.  Anibale Fly and Total Recall are next at 11-1, with the well-backed Baie Des Iles among the runners quoted at 16-1.

Bookmakers generally make Blaklion favourite, although it is very close at the head of the betting.

“Although Blaklion currently heads the National betting, what happens on Saturday will determine which runner is sent off as favourite, and we’ve seen some huge day of race gambles in the past, such as those on Papillon, Monkerhostin and Seabass, and the latter’s jockey, Katie Walsh, is on board another potential plunge horse this time around, with the grey mare Baie Des Iles already backed from 40-1 down to 16-1 this week,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
