The horse selected was Seabass, currently at odds of 9/1 to go one better than in 2012 and with the Grand National.
Seabass was the 8/1 joint favourite going into the 2012 Grand National, and the Irish gelding almost repaid punters’ faith. Finishing in third place, five lengths behind winner Neptune Collonges and second-placed Sunnyhillboy (who was beaten by a nose), Seabass was well in it with two fences to jump, but just didn’t have an extra gear in the final run in.
It was still a worthy run in a race that is tough to finish, let alone place in, and it capped off a run of seven straight victories with a sense of achievement for the trainer Ted Walsh and, especially, his daughter Katie who gained the highest finish in the Grand National for a female jockey.
Bets.co.uk have tracked more than 20 horses in the build up to the Aintree bonanza and their analysis has given Seabass as the potential winner.
