Who will win the 2021 Grand National?

There is no proven formula for picking a Grand National winner and for the vast majority of punters, this will be little more than a bit of fun. Everyone has their own way of picking a potential winner, whether this is favourite colour, name, favourite trainer or form. As things stand, firm favourite to win in 2021 is Cloth Cap, a nine-year-old trained by Jonjo O’Neill and available at odds of around 4/1.

Other contenders prominent in the market include Burrows Saint (8/1), Any Second Now (8/1) and Minella Times (11/1).
