Therefore, out of 19 races, it has been able to get some position 14 times which is creditable indeed. Hence, it is worthwhile to bet on this horse, and many punters are ready to do it.
The Last Samuri
This is another quality horse to watch out for, and it is generating quite a bit of interest as far as the Grand National odds are concerned. Ladbrokes must have done quite a bit of research to find out more about this horse. It also has a good track record and has so far participated in 18 races.
It has stood first in eight of these races and has an impressive record of five-second places apart from being placed third on two occasions. Hence, in total it has a total of fifteen places out of eighteen races which are impressive for any length of imagination.
It has an odd of 16/1 in its favor which according to many punters may be a bit of injustice to The Last Samuri given the brilliant track record which it enjoys.
One for Arthur
This is an eight-year-old Bay Gelding and is trained by Miss Lucinda V Russell. The horse is owned by Two Golf Widows. It also has an odd of 16/1 and has an interesting track record as far as its overall wins are concerned. It has run a total of 18 races and has come first in six of them.
Further, it also has stood second three times and has come third on five occasions. It has a win percentage of 33.33% and therefore is a horse to watch out for. On its given day, it could surprise everyone and walk away with the top honors.
The Young Master
This is again an eight-year-old bay gelding horse foaled on March 28, 2009. It has won a total of 35 races during its entire career.
It has come first on nine occasions and stood second on two occasions and third on two occasions. This is a reasonably good record and based on its track record it has been able to get odd of 20/1.
Though this may not be the best of odd in such a tough competition, it might not be right to write off this horse given the fact that it is a highly talented horse and under the training of N P Mulholland. So, let us wait and watch if the odd offered by Ladbrokes to The Young Master is correct or not.
Ucello Conti is a nine-year-old bay gelding horse trained by G Elliot and owned by Simon Munir and Isaac Souede. The horse has taken part in a total of nine races and has not stood first in any race. However, it has two-second places and one-third place to its credit.
It also comes with an odd of 20/1 according to Ladbrokes, and there are many punters who may not exactly agree with it. The above will give an idea as far as the various Ladbrokes Grand National odds are concerned.
Apart from the above, there are other names, like Blaklion, Foxrock, Tenor Nivernals, and Pleasant Company, who also have a reasonably good chance of creating an upset on their given day.
