Racing fans go in search of 2012 Grand National winner

Every year the Grand National captures the imagination of punters all across the world and millions of people read all the Grand National tips and flock to their local bookies to place a bet on racing’s most famous spectacle.

The four-mile war is the most daunting punting puzzle on the calendar and finding the winner is almost as challenging as the National course itself. Every year, horse racing fanatics spend hours on end ploughing through the form on offer trying to get an edge on the layers in the ante post market only to see their horse shirk away from the gruelling marathon and the unforgiving Aintree fences.

Not only is it the most difficult race of the year to pick a winner, it also represents the perfect opportunity for the bookies to strangle any value out of the market and the starting prices of the horses at the head of the betting are often far shorter than they should be.

This is why so many racing fans now turn to the essential Grand National tips which give them a fighting chance of winning the war with the bookmakers on National day.

More often than not National watchers end up paying for the bookmaker’s summer jaunts with wild bets and uneducated guesses on the outcome of one of the most challenging races of the entire season, but with expert tips and previews, once-a-year racing punters can gain an edge on bookmaker pitches all over Aintree.

In 2011, Donald McCain’s Ballabriggs battled to a sensational victory for his trainer and it was a result that went down incredibly well with the masses of supporters that had opted to side with Ballabriggs following the Saturday morning’s Grand National tips.

He was well supported on course and was placed at the forefront of the 2012 Aintree Grand National betting almost immediately. He will be back to defend his crown this year, but will he be able to leap to another spellbinding success on Merseyside, or will there be a new champion ready to power to glory over the world famous Aintree fences?
