The greatest show on turf returns for another year as 39 runners and riders prepare to tackle the Grand National at Aintree.

Noble Yeats sprung a 50/1 shock in last year’s renewal to send jockey Sam Waley-Cohen into retirement with a famous victory over the Merseyside track’s iconic spruce fences.

The Grand National is the richest Jumps race on the calendar as it boasts a mega prize pot worth £1,000,000, with winning connections taking home half of that sum.

You can run the rule over our Grand National odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

Grand National 2023 betting

Grand National odds are on paddypower.com and prices for the leading contenders can be seen on our snazzy widgets below.

Gordon Elliott has cracked the Cross Country Chase as a prep race for the Grand National and Delta Work heads to Aintree after scoring in the most unique race at the Cheltenham Festival.

The 10-year-old finished third in last year’s renewal and is set to race off a 1lb lower mark compared to 12 months ago.

Corach Rambler is prominent in the market after claiming a repeat victory in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

The Lucinda Russell-trained gelding also boasts course form thanks to a win in a Class 3 novices’ limited handicap chase over regulation fences in October 2021.

Ain’t That A Shame has climbed towards the top of Paddy Power’s betting for the Grand National as punters latch onto the Rachael Blackmore factor.

The Henry de Bromhead-trained gelding broke his maiden status over fences at the seventh time of asking last time out.

Noble Yeats, the defending champion, is next in our Grand National market despite being rated 19lbs higher by the handicapper compared to last year’s success.

The eight-year-old took his form to new levels by bagging the Grade 2 Many Clouds Chase at Aintree in December before staying on superbly to finish fourth in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
