Grand National 2023 Odds: Any Second Now favourite to claim Aintree crown

Any Second Now was a gallant runner-up behind Noble Yeats in the 2022 Grand National
Any Second Now was a gallant runner-up behind Noble Yeats in the 2022 Grand National

We take a look at the odds for the 2023 Grand National, which takes place at Aintree racecourse on April 15, and it's set to be another scorching contest next spring...

Noble Yeats and Any Second Now fought out a thrilling finish to the 2022 Grand National with the former prevailing to land the spoils at 50/1, with the 15/2 favourite Any Second Now having to settle for a gallant runner-up spot, as he placed in the Aintree showpiece for the second year on the spin.

Well, it's no surprise to see the pair as the prominent duo at the head of the betting, and both are 20/1 chances for the Merseyside marathon next April, and they both showed a real zest for the unique jumping test, and both should certainly figure in next year's contest.

Pulling clear of the rest of the field, Noble Yeats handed top amateur Sam Waley-Cohen his first Grand National win in his last ever ride, as the Emmet Mullins-trained novice just managed to pull away from Ted Walsh's Any Second Now up the straight, and it would prove to be another disappointing final furlong for Any Second Now, who finished third behind Minella Times back in 2021.

Still only seven years old, Noble Yeats is destined for a long career ahead of him at the top table of staying chases, so he's sure to attract support in next year's event, but Any Second Now will be 11 years old next season, so has his chance gone for Grand National glory?

Christian Williams has become a name synonymous with staying handicap chasers this season and he has a hugely exciting duo that could turn into real 2023 Grand National contenders and they are Win My Wings and Kitty's Light. The former, who is another etched in at 20/1, was a sparkling winner of the Eider Chase at Newcastle two starts ago, and then followed that up with a dominant romp in the Scottish Grand National at Ayr a couple of weeks ago.

Travelling serenely into the Scottish National, Win My Wings quickened in sensational fashion and went on to beat Kitty's Light by a whopping seven lengths, and he shaped like there's a lot more to come next season. Aintree is sure to be on the agenda for this progressive nine-year-old and he has to be considered a leading candidate at the moment.

Only a six-year-old, Kitty's Light is another with bundles of ability and having finished a staying-on second in the Coral Trophy at Kempton Park he then ran a cracker in defeat at Ayr, and at 25/1 for the 2023 National he could make appeal. Still very young, Kitty's Light will look to emulate the seven-year-old Noble Yeats by being victorious at a young age, and he will be the second shot fired by the Williams gun.

Colin Tizzard's Fiddlerontheroof (33/1) and Gordon Elliott's Delta Work (33/1) both ran fine races at Aintree at the weekend, and they could be set for another crack at the world's greatest steeplechase, while Longhouse Poet and Santini could be another pairing from Saturday's contest that improves for a second crack at the event, and he is another 33/1 chance worth mentioning.
