2022 Grand National Tips
Horses Tipped For The Aintree Glory | Saturday 9th April 2022
Winner of the Becher Chase so we know she likes the Grand National fences but being a grey and a mare means history doesn’t work in her favour. That shouldn’t stop her from putting in a great performance in the Grand National 2022.
He was a firm favourite in 2021 and despite a great race didn’t have it in the tank to challenge Minella Times and finished in 4th place. Will no doubt challenge again in the Grand National 2022.
Four runs this season, three second place finishes and over some hefty distances. Ticks a lot of boxes and could be decent each-way consideration.
Definitely a long distance chaser and one that won the Scottish National last season. Form has dipped a little, pulling up in his last two races but if he is on form on the day he could threaten.

Discover the amazing story behind
the 100/1 winner.
Past winners of the race have statistically fallen into a narrow band of age, weight and form and once you can identify which horses fit the trends, you can narrow down the field and look more closely at the horses with a realistic chance of winning.
Focus on horses between the ages of 8 and 11 years old. In the last ten years, all winners have come from this age group.
The weight a horse carries is a very important factor as obviously the horses carrying the biggest weights will find it much tougher going than those who carry less. Trends suggest that horses carrying more than 11-03 will struggle around the demanding Aintree course.
Also, look at a horse’s form and pay close attention to jumping ability. Though entry criteria stipulate that a horse must have placed in the top 4 in a race of 3 miles or more at least once, those that consistently place should be favoured.
Once we’ve whittled down the entries using the stats above, we are usually left with around 15 horses that fit the bill. From that list, we can start selecting our tips and our aim is to give you four or five horses we feel will be in with a shout at the last fence.
