What to expect at the Grand National 2013?

Expect the unexpected. Nobody thought Neptune Collonges would take home the crown in 2012. Everyone did not expect an eleven year old grey would win the said event but surprisingly that horse won. Horses’ weight is one of the factors to consider in picking a winning horse. Normally, horses that are beyond the 11-02 stones weight is downright at the losing end but with the recent win of Neptune Collenges, experts believe that weight is not that much a factor now in the Grand National. Moreover, horses that carries around 11-06 for its entire career is a fair choice. The rule of thumb is look at the weight the horses are already used to carrying before.

Another factor to consider is the horse’s racing stamina and endurance. Meaning, the horse can ran at a pace that is consistent all throughout without ever slowing or suddenly stopping. You don’t want that.

Last but not the least; look for the horse’s experience, for as they say, “Age before beauty.” Horses that have ran at least 8 races are more likely to win races or at the top of the racing results. But with the recent technology and trainings, 30 percent of the 2013 entries are 11 year old and over with the heaviest goes to the 12 year olds. Anyway, safest bet would be to choose from nine to 10 year old horses and stay away from 7 year old and below since only one has won and a small percentage even finishes the entire Grand National course.

With all that being said, horse-racing analyst (the really expert ones) would always tell you to bet on grand national with William Hill Online or other established bookmakers since they know what they are talking about.
