Bet On The 2013 Betfred Grand National Trial

Grand National TrialThe Grand National Trial race is an important trial for the ever popular Grand National race, which is the biggest steeplechase race of the year.  It is held on April 6th this year and this Grand National Trial will serve as an entrance race for many of the horses participating.

The Grand National Trial is open to horses five years or older and it is run at Haydock Park.  The distance of the race is 3 miles and 4 furlongs (1 mile shorter than the Grand National) and there are 22 fences that must be jumped by the horses.

Betfred Grand National Trial Odds

Although Betfred is the sponsor of this race I much prefer betting at, and that is where I’ve found the following odds.

  • Katenko +500
  • Teaforthree +550
  • Monbeg Dude +700
  • Rigadin De Beauchene +750
  • Wyck Hill +1000
  • Cannington Brook +1200
  • Big Fellat Thanks +1400
  • Junior +1400
  • Godsmejudge +1600
  • Viking Blond +1600
  • Well Refreshed +1600

There are the odds for all of the horses in this race that currently have shorter than +2000 odds.  Like all National Hunt chase races the field is much larger than the horses listed and if you want to see the odds of the entire field you should visit

Bet365 is also offering each-way betting on this race with you receiving 1/4 of the odds listed if the horse finishes in the first, second, third or fourth positions.

Katenko and Teaforthree are the early favourites to win the trial.  Katenko has won his last two races (Johns Spirit and Fruity O’Rooney), while Teaforthree finished 2nd at the Coral Welsh National in his only race of the year.  It was Monbeg Dude who is listed at +700 odds who won the Coral Welsh National earlier this year, so he is another one to watch.

About The Race
