Grand National Favourites: A look at the leading fancies for the Aintree marathon

Delta Work is a leading favourite for the 2022 Grand National
Delta Work is a leading favourite for the 2022 Grand National

Since the turn of the century only four favourites or joint favourites have been victorious in the Grand National, and we take a look at those heading the betting for the 2022 renewal, which takes place at Aintree on Saturday afternoon...

The legendary Tiger Roll was the last winning favourite back in 2019 when he was sent off a 4/1 jolly for the world's greatest steeplechase, and it's his conqueror at last month's Cheltenham Festival, Delta Work, that sits at the head of the betting for the 2022 renewal. The Gordon Elliott-trained multiple Grade 1 winner stormed to victory in the Cross Country Chase at Prestbury Park last month, and he's now a best-priced 8/1 market leader for the Grand National. A real class act, the Gigginstown House Stud-owned will have a significant weight burden to carry, but he's no doubt the class horse in the contest, and has to be one of the leading contenders.

Challenging Delta Work for favouritism is the Charlie Longsdon-trained Snow Leopardess, who was a stunning winner of the Becher Chase over the Aintree National fences earlier in the season, and the grey mare has come in for continued support over the last few weeks, and she's also trading at a best-priced 8/1. The ten-year-old will have a relatively light weight to carry as she goes in search of her fourth win on the spin, and she will most certainly spearhead the British challenge for Grand National glory.

Odds correct as of 2022-05-21 08:21 Odds subject to change.

Ted Walsh knows how to win the Grand National having saddled Papillon to victory back in 2000 and the Irish handler will saddle the well-fancied Any Second Now, who is currently a 10/1 chance to strike gold on Saturday. Placed in last year's Grand National behind Minella Times, who is currently 16/1 to retain his crown, Any Second Now warmed up for this event with a fine victory in the Bobbyjo Chase, and he must be regarded as a major contender.

Escaria Ten was just beaten by Any Second Now in the aforementioned Bobbyjo Chase in February, and he's next in the betting at 12/1, while Enjoy D'allen (14/1) and Fiddlerontheroof (14/1) are the next two in the betting for what looks a wide open renewal of the Aintree event.

So, this year's running of the Grand National looks extremely competitive and there could be a whole number of contenders that go of favourite for the event, but will the market leader be the fifth winning favourite this century? Find out at 17:15 on Saturday afternoon.
