When a race is coming up there are always clear favourites to win the race, have a look to see which these are and shortlist them. To see which horses are competing, lists the runners for the competition, along with a few stats so it’s easy to get a clear look at who to go for.

Chances are that if they have, it may not happen again. Red Rum is the only horse to have won the grand national more than once.

It can sometimes be important to look at factors such as the jockey and its trainer. What are his/her skills and experience? But ultimately, this is all represented in the horses past performances, so look at how the horse has performed in the past. Do the jockey and rider seem to perform well together? Does it have a particularly good trainer with plenty of experience?

Following these tips should increase your chances and win that all-important race, but the more you know, the better your chances!
