Grand National 2016

Bet on the Crabbie's Grand National With William Hill

Saturday 9th April

Crabbie's Grand National betting

The very best 2016 Grand National Betting odds with William Hill

Sometimes a sporting event comes along that unites a nation. The Crabbie's Grand National is by far the most popular betting occasion in the calendar. Every household throughout the land will have their bet slip in hand as the horses line up for the world’s most famous race.

The excitement will be at fever pitch as the tapes rise and the 40 runners charge towards the first of thirty fences and it won’t stop until the results are posted. Bechers Brook, Foinavon, The Canal Turn, Valentines, The Chair, Melling Road and so much more…..history has been created on every part of the Aintree Grand National course as horses fly over the fences, running for glory.

Legends have become more than household names through the years, from the aptly named Lottery winning in 1839, to lady luck gifting Foinavon glory in 1967. 6 years later, Red Rum added his name to the roll of honour, before returning in 1974 and ’77 to surpass all that had gone before, by winning three Nationals. It takes a leap of the imagination to think we will see his like again.

In recent years, some of the biggest gambles in history have seen celebrations of astronomical proportions. The father and son combination of Tommy and Paul Carberry’s Boobyjo, Hedgehunter for Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins and the Barry Geraghty ridden Monty’s Pass to name but a few. While the McCain family, of Red Run fame, continued to plunder the biggest prize in racing, with Amberleigh House winning in 2004 and Ginger’s son Donald taking the glory with Ballabriggs four years ago.

  • The betting odds collapse on whatever horse AP McCoy elects to ride and Don’t Push It, in 2010, gave the champ his first taste of National glory. Mon Mome and Auroras Encore caused the biggest surprises, taking the 2009 and 2013 renewals at odds of 100/1 and 66/1.

    Last year, Pineau De Re, who had fallen on his only other attempt at the National fences, created his own bit of history, as he strode past the Elbow and powered to the winning post five lengths clear of his toiling rivals. His jockey, Leighton Aspell, and trainer, Dr Richard Newland, known as the ‘Good Doctor’ are not, with respect, the sport’s biggest names. Nevertheless, their lives changes forever as they realised their dreams in front of the packed stands, millions and millions watching on TV’s around the world, and fans who had placed bets online.

    Every winner has their own story to tell and every winning bet, whatever the amount, is special!

    The 2016 Aintree Grand National has an unbreakable aura that surpasses all others and we wait to see who will have a tale to tell after this year’s race. Follow the glamour and excitement online or from the stands at Aintree, but just be sure to check out the fabulous horse racing betting news, tips, odds and results at William Hill online.
