Bookies Cheer On Danger Mouse

Cause Of Causes is the best-backed horse with William Hill ahead of the Scottish Grand National. He leads the market at 8-1 along with Measureofmydreams.

Meanwhile, William Hill are taking money on Golden Chieftain and Berea Boru. Both have shortened, with Golden Chieftain now 14-1 from 20-1 and Berea Boru 16-1 from 33-1.

Mouse Morris won the Irish Grand National at the end of last month with Rogue Angel and then added the world’s biggest National Hunt prize, by winning the Crabbie’s Grand National with Rule The World. He is represented by 20-1 chance Folsom Blue in the Scottish Grand National.

“Cause Of Causes is the worst result for bookmakers and we’ll be cheering on Mouse Morris to repeat the feat after his Aintree heroics,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
