2021 Grand National: Horses To Look Out For

Cloth Cap

This 9-year old trained by Jonjo O’Neill looks thrown in at the weights and that is reflected in his odds as he is a very short 9/2 favourite with Paddy Power*

Owned by Trevor Hemmings who has won this race three times in the past with Hedgehunter (2005), Ballabriggs (2011) and Many Clouds (2015).

Any Second Now

Any Second Now Grand National Odds

Ran a career-best effort in landing a Grade 2 Chase at Navan in March after the National weights had been published so his allotted weight has not been affected by that win.

Owned and bred by JP McManus this 9-year old is trained by Ted Walsh and looks a classy horse but he would appreciate ground on the soft side.

Burrows Saint


The lightly-raced eight-year-old already has one Grand National to his name, the 2019 Irish version at Fairyhouse.

Showed his well being with recent second place in the Grade 3 Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse and is sure to be a leading contender if the Saint Des Saints gelding takes to the big Aintree fences on his first attempt.

Kimberlite Candy

Kimberlite Candy Grand National Odds

Another JP McManus owned horse and trained by Tom Lacey, this 9-year old won the Classic Chase at Warwick last year but has only raced once since where he finished second for the second successive year in the Becher Chase over the Grand National fences.

A good jumper he would prefer soft ground conditions.

Minella Times

Minella Times Grand National Odds

Yet another JP McManus owned horse, trained by Henry de Bromhead and ridden by the in-form Rachael Blackmore. This will be his first time running outside of Ireland.

A winner twice from his ten starts over fences he has also racked up five second places and improved to win a Listowel handicap last September.

Magic Of Light


This supposedly doubtful stayer surprised many by beating all bar Tiger Roll in the 2019 National.

The mare was beaten just under three lengths by Tiger Roll, who will not be taking part this year, but Magic Of Light will have a better preparation on this occasion.

A poor run in the Paddy Power Mares Chase at the Cheltenham saw her finish last of the eight finishers and as a result her Grand National odds have drifted out to 20/1.
