Grand National Horses to Watch for 2021
April 2021 will see one of the world’s most prestigious steeplechases return to Liverpool. The Grand National festival is said to attract around 150,000 visitors each year. It is the most valuable jump race in Europe, with a prize fund of over £1 million.
2019’s Grand National saw Tiger Roll make a triumphant win once again for a second consecutive year. The nation was set for the champion to make it a hat-trick during 2020’s Grand National but sadly the meeting was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Race lovers are now more eager than ever to see the return of one of the world’s most iconic horses races. Who will become champion as the Grand National resumes in 2021?
Grand National Runners to watch in 2021
The 2018 and 2019 Grand National winner was on track for a third consecutive win in 2020 before the meeting was cancelled as a result of coronavirus. Horsing hero Red Rum was the last back to back winner in 1973 and 1974, will Tiger Roll be able to beat this record as the Grand National returns in 2021? Trainer Gordon Elliot will be looking to add to his list of wins, having also won with Silver Birch in 2007. Tiger Roll’s successful run dates back to his win at Cheltenham Festival in the 2016/17 season also. Tiger Roll is undoubtedly one to watch in 2021. Have you got your bets ready?
A classic runner to watch out for in 2021, Burrows Saint provided trainer, Willie Mullins, with multiple wins in 2019, including Gowran Park, Limerick, Fairyhouse and most recently, Punchestown. This handful of wins will surely stand the eight-year-old in good stead for a potential Grand National win. Definitely one to watch as the meeting draws closer.
Any Second Now
2019 saw Any Second Now take the crown at Cheltenham’s Kim Muir Challenge Cup as well as first place in the Grade 3 WhatOddsPaddy? Chase at Naas. Despite a couple of shaky performances at Cork and Fairyhouse, It seems that Any Second Now could put up a good fight during the 2021 Grand National. We are keen to see how the eight-year-old progresses over the coming months.
Easyland has proven himself to be a solid long-distance runner, having beat the likes of Tiger Roll during Cheltenham’s Glenfarclas Chase in 2020. A string of successful recent performances certainly positions him as a real contender for the 2021 Grand National, with the potential to rival some of the nation’s finest runners.
