Betfred Anticipate £200 Million To Be Wagered On John Smith's Grand National

LIVERPOOL, England, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The John Smith's Grand National is just over 24 hours away and Aintree's official betting partner Betfred is bracing itself for a betting bonanza on the world's most famous race.

The entire nation looks forward to placing a bet on the Grand National and Betfred expect punters to put their trust in the names Walsh and McCoy as their mounts dominate the betting. 

Ruby Walsh is aboard the 7/1 jolly Oh His Own whilst AP McCoy will be on the 9/1 second-favourite Colbert Station.  Katie Walsh, younger sister of Ruby, is partnering the 10/1 shot Seabass, but that price could shorten significantly before the off.

Betfred spokesman Andrew Griffiths said:

"We think public interest in the John Smith's Grand National is as strong as ever.

"With half the UK adult population expected to have a flutter, we anticipate more than £200 million will be wagered on the world's most famous race.

" Katie Walsh is aboard Seabass again who was backed off the boards last year.  If her supporters come out in force tomorrow, there is every chance she could be aboard the National favourite come the off."
