After cashing in with Minella Times 12 months ago, we’re hoping to bash the bookies again with our Grand National 2022 tips.
All eyes will be on Aintree this weekend and there is an open look to the world’s most famous race this year, which is reflected in the latest prices.
Here are our three picks for punters to consider and their latest Grand National 2022 odds:
SNOW LEOPARDESS @ 8.0
Charlie Longsdon’s grey mare will be popular with once-a-year punters due to her striking appearance, but also appeals to shrewd judges following a hat-trick of victories this term.
Snow Leopardess kept on well to score at Bangor in November and then held on gamely to land the Becher Chase over these fences in December, justifying favouritism against 20 rivals on soft going.
She returned from a 71-day break to jump nicely in a February triumph at Exeter, has since been laid out for this contest and connections will be delighted with any rain falling on Merseyside in the build-up.
FIDDLERONTHEROOF @ 17.0
Colin Tizzard’s charge was an expensive purchase from Ireland in his younger days and could now be ready to repay the faith shown in him by taking home the £500,000 first prize on offer here.
Fiddlerontheroof was just short of top class as a novice over hurdles and fences, being only 6/1 in the 2020 Supreme won by Shishkin and then chasing home Monkfish at last year’s Cheltenham Festival.
However, this season he has looked more like the finished article, following up a Carlisle win by finishing a close second of 21 in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury, while there were excuses for being collared on the run-in at Ascot last time out.
RUN WILD FRED @ 15.0
Trainer Gordon Elliott and owners Gigginstown House Stud opted against giving Tiger Roll the chance to match Red Rum’s three wins in this race but they still send over a strong team from Ireland.
Delta Work will be popular in Grand National each-way tips after landing the cross country race at Cheltenham, but Run Wild Fred also went into many notebooks after a solid effort at the Festival.
The eight-year-old was no match for Stattler in the National Hunt Chase but that was another encouraging display from this out-and-out galloper who was also second in last year’s Irish National on just his fourth outing over fences.
