With the 2023 Grand National now just around the corner, we will be offering 'Non-Runner No Bet' in this year's Aintree showpiece.
This year's Grand National, taking place on Saturday 15th April, looks set to serve up another classic race between a talented field of runners and riders.
Although there is not yet confirmation of all of the 40 participants involved, our Non-Runner No Bet Offer means those who wish to have an antepost bet early can do so without the risk of their selections being absent from the reckoning come race day.
This applies to bets placed from 17:30 UK Time on Friday 17th March 2023. Any bets placed on the Win and Each Way ‘NRNB’ market will be refunded if your selection does not run. In multiple bets if a selection does not run, that part of the bet will be deemed a non-runner.
Below we have outlined five of the latest antepost favourites for a Top Five Finish in this year's Grand National which punters may wish to get on early.
Becoming the first seven-year-old horse to claim Grand National glory since Bogskar in 1940 last year, the Irish-bred Noble Yeats is fancied to contend for victory again to join the likes of the famous Tiger Roll and Red Rum in securing back-to-back wins at Aintree.
Winning the National in poignant fashion last year in the final race of jockey Sam Waley-Cohen's career at odds of 50-1, the Emmet-Mullins trained Noble Yeats will be ridden by Sean Bowen at Aintree in 2023.
Fresh off the back of winning the Ultima Handicap Chase for the second successive year at Cheltenham, Lucinda Russell-trained Corach Rambler appears to have a good shot at backing up this feat with success at the Grand National.
Ridden brilliantly by Derek Fox at Cheltenham. the nine-year-old Corach Rambler will certainly arrive at Aintree in impressive form.
Placing third in the Grand National last year, Delta Work is another horse who will compete in the Grand National following success at Cheltenham after winning the Cross County Chase.
This victory is likely to see Gordon Elliott's horse fancied to go well at Aintree, with last year's strong performance underlining its credentials to go the distance.
A commendable sixth-placed finish in the Grand National last year proves Longhouse Poet can hold its own in the Aintree marathon.
The Martin Brassil-trained ride will be better off for the experienced gathered in 2022, and will be expected to be there or thereabouts in the big one on April 15th.
Runner-up to Noble Yeats last year and finishing third at Aintree in 2021, Ted Walsh will be hoping it's third time lucky for horse Any Second Now at the Grand National this time around.
Any Second Now will carry top weight in this year's spectacle, but Walsh will still be confident his 11-year-old charge will have what it takes to stake a claim for glory.
