Aintree Betting Tips
The 2022 Grand National is one of the headline races of the season, and with my runners who featured at the Cheltenham Festival expected to feature, we're banking on some exciting races at Aintree over the coming days. Before the main event itself, there are three days of UK horse racing for punters to sink their teeth into, and we'll have all our Aintree betting tips for all the feature races.
However, if you are looking to place a bet on the Grand National, we have the odds at Bet UK if you favour the ante post-market.
Aintree Day Two Betting Tips
Bet of the Day
Jonbon - Top Novice's Hurdle
When it comes to finding the top novice hurdler of the season, Cheltenham and Aintree are normally the places to look. With that in mind, we're going for Jonbon who finished second on the Supreme and will look to go one better here. He's shown strong form all the way through the season, and his trainer will be hoping he can top it off with a win here, given that he's over a preferred distance.
Dark Horse of the Day
Captain Guinness - Marsh Chase
Our dark horse of the day in the UK horse racing betting market is Henry De Bromhead trained Captain Guinness. A winner in Ireland back in February, he's shown strong form this season and makes his first appearance at Aintree. Running over a preferred distance, he should have a strong chance to add to his tally here.
Longshot of the Day
Royal Rendezvous - Topham Chase
Run on the Grand National course, the Topham Chase is another chance for UK horse racing betting punters to see the National fences before the main event itself. Royal Rendezvous is Willie Mullins' chance for this race and is partnered by Paul Townend. He is one of the higher weights on the card, but he should perform well here given his form.

In total, they will travel over 4 miles before reaching the finish line. With relatively small beginnings, the Grand National has now become a worldwide phenomenon with a staggering prize fund of over £1 million.
Grand National Winners
2018 saw the race won by Tiger Roll ridden by Davy Russell and trained by Gordon Elliot. The Irish horse held off a late challenge from Pleasant Company to win the illustrious race by a photo finish. In terms of famous past winners, the first official victor was Lottery back in 1839, a horse ridden by the jockey Jem Mason. Fast forwarding to the 1970s and it was Red Rum who became immortalised with 3 Grand National wins in 1973, 1974 and 1977. In more recent times, winners have included Ballabriggs, Many Clouds, Rule The World and One For Arthur.
