Grand National Horse Racing By Jon Ivan-Duke

Updated Grand National Betting + Mccoy Starting Price Special

The provisional field of 40 runners for Saturday’s Grand National has been announced and AP McCoy’s mount Shutthefrontdoor is the 7-1 favourite with William Hill. Bookmakers are bracing themselves for a mammoth gamble on ‘The Champ’, as he prepares for his final ride in the great race.

However, it’s still difficult to predict exactly what price McCoy’s mount will start, with William Hill offering odds on the starting price.

What Will The Starting Price Of AP McCoy’s Ride In The Grand National Be?:

  • 5-4 5/1, 11/2 or 6/1
  • 6-4 9/2 Or Less
  • 11-4 13/2 Or Bigger

“If McCoy is among the winners at Aintree, then more people will back him and the cumulative effect could be that Shutthefrontdoor starts as the shortest-priced favourite since Red Rum,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “AP McCoy is a name that people are familiar with and the expected wave of public affection is likely to be backed up with pounds from the punters.”
