Vieux Lion Rouge 20/1 For Grand National

Vieux Lion Rouge put in a great round of jumping to win the Becher Chase at Aintree and is now 20-1 co-favourite to win the Grand National with William Hill.

“Vieux Lion Rouge came back in after winning the Becher and looked like he could go round again. He deserves his place at the top of the Grand National betting,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
