Grand National Tips: 5 Outsiders That Could Outrun Their Aintree Odds

We’re getting closer to the 2024 Grand National, with a field of 34 runners going to post for the world’s most famous steeplechase. 

The market is starting to take shape, with Corach Rambler trading as favourite with betting sites and it’s little surprise to see last year’s winner being backed considering he was third in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Ahead of Saturday's big race why not take on our Grand Jump challenge below. Also don't forget to enter our competition to be in with a chance of winning £/€1,000!

However, many punters will instead be looking at selections trading at a more backable each-way price and we have come up with five suggestions. 

It’s great to secure extra places when it comes to your Grand National betting – hopefully our runners can give you a good run for your money at the very least.

Mahler Mission

John C McConnell has never saddled a Grand National winner although there are high hopes for an eight-year-old who has put in a couple of impressive performances already this season. 

He has been runner-up in both outings to date and has been kept wrapped up in cotton wool since an eye-catching display at Newbury in December.

On that occasion, he finished second to Datsalrightgino and that came after a seasonal debut at Carlisle when landing the runner-up spot. 

It should also be noted that the horse was travelling strongly and looking a likely winner of the 2023 National Hunt Challenge Cup at the Cheltenham Festival when falling two fences out.

Nassalam might be saddled with a hefty 11-7 for the 2024 Grand National although he could still run a big race for trainer Gary Moore. 

The seven-year-old was pulled up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, but we can’t ignore that amazing run in the Coral Welsh Grand National where he was able to claim an outstanding 34 length triumph.

If the going is on the heavy side of soft at Aintree, then this could play into the hands of a horse who will keep plodding on irrespective of the conditions. 

Before winning the Welsh National, he had previously landed the spoils in a Welsh Grand National Trial race and should be able to find his jumping rhythm in Liverpool.


Tom Ellis is a little-known trainer who has been the top point-to-point handler over the past five years and he’s taken out a professional license in order for Latenightpass to run in the Aintree showpiece.

The 11-year-old previously displayed smart form under the tutelage of Dan Skelton and was among the finishers in the Albert Bartlett Prestige Novices' Hurdle at Haydock.

Back in December, there was a Cross Country Chase victory at Cheltenham when fending off 12 other rivals and this came after a runner-up spot in a similar race at the same track. 

In last year’s Aintree Festival, we saw the horse run in the Foxhunters’ Chase where he was able to secure a fourth-placed finish.

Willie Mullins will be mob-handed when it comes to the 2024 Grand National and perhaps Capodanno represents the best each-way value. 

The eight-year-old runs in the colours of owner JP McManus and ran reasonably well at the Cheltenham Festival when finishing fourth in the Ryanair Chase.

He should benefit from a longer trip this time around, with a victory coming in the Paddy Power Cotswold Chase at the end of January when obliging over a trip that was over three miles in distance. 

Capodanno will aim for a better outcome than a year ago when being pulled-up in the 2023 renewal.

Coko Beach

Gordon Elliott saddled Tiger Roll to consecutive Grand National victories and perhaps Coko Beach can follow in his footsteps. 

The nine-year-old has already landed a couple of victories this season, the latest of which came at Punchestown. 

He was sent off as the 11/8 favourite with betting apps in a Cross Country Chase and duly obliged with a win.

Coko Beach has already demonstrated prowess over the big Aintree obstacles when finishing second to Chambard in the Becher Handicap Chase in December, and also previously won a three-mile handicap chase at Navan when coping really well with the heavy conditions.
