Tips for Grand National 2017 Betting
Historically the Grand National field has featured a fair proportion of ‘no hopers’ but, such is the nature and stature of the race in this era, none of the 40-strong field taking part in 2017 can or should be overlooked.
Somewhere among the major national newspapers, who all offer great coverage of the great race, there will be Grand National tips for every single runner!
But regardless of what the jockeys, trainers, form students or celebrity tipsters tell you, the one and best Grand National tip is to seek out the best betting offers, concessions, enhanced odds and enhanced each-way place terms and take full advantage of them.
Furthermore be sure to place your Grand National bets long before the great horse race begins as the overwhelming number of runners will shorten in price as the minutes to ‘tapes up’ unwind. And, naturally, whoever you bet with, make sure they offer the ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ concession.
Grand National Useful Apps
As previously stated the major bookmakers throw the proverbial kitchen sink at their Grand National app or micro-site bolted on to their traditional betting app.
The Betfair, bet365 and Ladbrokes Grand National apps are amongst the best.
But, while bookmakers apps with their range of ‘spotlights’, ‘form figures’, ‘previews’ and ‘live streaming’ offer an excellent way of deciphering and enjoying the Grand National, there are yet more options…
The App Store also lists many custom-made Grand National apps offering Grand National updates, news and history for the most part designed and produced by enthusiastic racing fans and historians.
But for Grand National betting 2017 and Grand National runners tips surely the best apps to download are those of the major national newspapers.
Most, in the UK and Ireland, have an arrangement in place with a high-profile jockey or trainer meaning these have the exclusive views and news from the likes of Gordon Elliott, Ruby Walsh, Paul Nicholls and Richard Johnson.
