On the eve of the most famous race of the year, Coral traders are braced for the biggest Grand National gamble since the legendary Red Rum was sent off the 7/2 favourite in 1975.

This year’s hot favourite is Tiger Roll, a 10/1 shot when winning the race 12 months ago, but already much shorter odds to become the first back-to-back winner of the famous Aintree contest since Red Rum himself completed the double triumph in 1974.  

“The Grand National captures the public’s imagination like no other sporting event, with an estimated third of the adult population enjoying a flutter on the big race,” Coral’s David Stevens told Bettingpro.com. “This year one horse – Tiger Roll – will feature on millions of betting slips on Saturday.

“Tiger Roll was a popular winner 12 months ago, but that victory will be nothing compared to the reaction if the nine-year-old emulates the mighty Red Rum and becomes the first dual-winner of the race for 44 years. 

“One year later, Rummie was sent off the 7/2 favourite when failing to complete a hat-trick of wins, and Tiger Roll is already the same odds, and that’s before millions of bets are placed on the horse on Saturday.

“There will only ever be one Red Rum, who did complete his hat-trick when winning again in 1977, but Tiger Roll will be the most popular National runner since those days, and it’s even possible that he could become the shortest-priced winning favourite since Poethlyn won at odds of 11/4 one hundred years ago.”
