    Default AINTREE GRAND NATIONAL TRENDS 2017

    The highlight for many of the national hunt calendar, the Randox Health Grand National takes place at Aintree on Saturday 8th April. It’s always a fiercely competitive cavalry charge, you need plenty of luck to win it but there are plenty of key trends that can help to narrow the field down.

    Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years:

    Age (Win-Place-Runners)
    6yo: 0-0-2
    7yo: 0-0-23
    8yo: 1-7-67
    9yo: 3-9-111
    10yo: 3-7-103
    11yo: 3-5-56
    12yo: 0-1-27
    13yo+: 0-1-9
    Every winner since WWII (1946) has been aged 8 to 12
    In the past 10 years all 38 of 40 places were filled by horses aged 8 to 11
    All 3 winners aged 8 in last 30 years have finished in first 5 in the Hennessy Gold Cup earlier that season.
    All 25 horses aged younger than 8 have been unplaced and only 2 of 36 horses aged 12+ have made the frame.

    Weight (Win-Place-Runners)
    horses carrying 11-7 or more: 1-1-32
    horses carrying 11-0 to 11-6: 4-8-91
    horses carrying 10-6 to 10-13: 4-16-188
    horses carrying 10-5 or less: 1-5-87
    horses carrying 11-0 or more have won 5 of 10 but represented just 30.9% of total runners.
    The last 4 horses that managed to make the places, carrying 11-7+, had won previous year’s race or finished in first 6 in Cheltenham Gold Cup on previous start.
    9 of 10 winners were initially allotted a weight of at least 10-5 on publication of National weights, exception Auroras Encore was allotted 9-13.
    8 of 10 winners carried no more than a stone higher than the bottom weight
    Top Weight: 900UF3FPUP0 (0-1-11)

    Official Ratings
    horses rated 149 or higher: 4-10-134
    horses rated 136 to 148: 6-20-256
    horses rated 127 to 135: 0-0-8
    In recent years the trend has swung towards higher rated runners, with 27 of 32 places since 2009 going to horses rated 143+.
    In last 8 years
    horses rated 143 or higher: 7-20-224
    horses rated 142 or lower: 1-4-94

    Mon Mome became the first French bred since 1909 to win the Grand National when landing the race in 2009 and Neptune Collonges & Pineau De Re followed up the feat in 2012 & 2014.
    Irish bred horses have won 6 of the last 10 and filled in 30 of 40 places (75%) from approximately 61% of the runners.

    Racing Tactics
    6 of 10 winners raced prominently

    1 of 10 winners were held up

    Trainers
    Trainers who have won the race in the past 10 years and have entries this year are:
    Jonjo O’Neill (1-2-21), Paul Nicholls (1-2-36), David Pipe (1-1-27), Richard Newland (1-0-3), Sue Smith (1-0-4), Mouse Morris (1-0-5), Gordon Elliot (1-0-10), Venetia Williams (1-0-10) and Donald McCain (1-0-16).
    Willie Mullins (0-1-26) won this in 2005 but has seen just 2 of his 27 runners since then make the frame.
    Kim Bailey (0-1-6) & Dermot McLoughlin (0-1-1) saddled The Last Samuri & Vics Canvas to be 2nd & 3rd respectively in 2016.
    Rebecca Curtis (0-1-4), Tom George (0-1-4) & Ted Walsh (0-1-6) have each saddled 1 placed finisher.

    2 of 10 winners were trained in Ireland (2-11-114) from approximately 28.6% of total runners. Bobbyjo, in 1999, became first Irish winner since 1975. Between 1999 & 2007, Irish-trained runners won 6 of 9 runnings. Since 2008, Irish-trained runners have a record of 1-10-103.

    Price

    Favourites (2-4-17) have gained 2 wins in past 10 years, giving a level stakes loss of 0.50.
