Horses at Grand National

Grand National Horses to Watch for 2019

April 2019 will see the world’s most prestigious steeplechase return to Liverpool. The Grand National festival is said to attract 152,000 visitors each year. It is the most valuable jump race in Europe with a prize fund of over £1 million.

2018’s Grand National saw Tiger Roll make history with a triumphant main event win. But who will make history in 2019?

Which Grand National Runners should we keep an eye on?

Tiger Roll

The 2018 Grand National winner will no doubt be hoping for a consecutive win ahead of the 2019 festival. Horsing hero Red Rum was the last back to back winner in 1973 and 1974, will Tiger Roll be able to match this victory? Trainer Gordon Elliot will be chasing a triple win to match his previous 2007 and 2018 wins. Tiger Roll’s successful run dates back to his win at Cheltenham Festival in the 2016/17 season also. Tiger Roll is one to watch in 2019, have you got your bets ready?

Pleasant Company

Runner up Pleasant Company had an extraordinary run in the 2018 Grand National. Despite being headed by Tiger Roll he is set to be a major contender in 2019’s race. With wins at Punchestown and Fairyhouse in the 2016/17 season he is definitely one to watch. As one of the oldest front runners at the age of 11, there is no sign of him tiring out. Trainer Willie Mullins will be hoping to narrow the gap since his previous win in 2005.

Anibale Fly

One to watch Anibale Fly will look to make history for his Irish trainer Tony Martin with a 2019 win. The horse’s strong stamina has played in his favour in the past with a third-place victory at Cheltenham. The 2018 Grand National saw Anibale Fly finish in fourth place with a 159 rating. As the Grand National festival draws closer there is no doubt the support for Anibale will fly in. Would he get your bet?

One For Arthur

Grand National 2017 winner will look to regain his title in a 2019 comeback. The Scottish trained horse missed out on the 2018 Grand National due to injury. Yet he still remains a Grand National favourite. As a previous winner, his chances of victory are high and there is no doubt the 2018 break has paid off. One for Arthur will look to replicate Red Rum’s victory with a double win in 2019. Trainer Lucinda Russell is confident her horse can come back triumphantly. Excited about the 2019 season she said her horse has both bravery and the ability to come out victorious.
