2018 Grand National – 1000/1 Winner

Grand National 2018
It's time to find that 1000/1 winner!

Sadly, history details that you will never get so lucky betting with a conventional bookmaker. 

However, that doesn't mean you can't win a fortune when your selection jumps the last fence and hangs on to finish numero uno.

It's a hard race. A stiff 4 miles and 2 furlongs. Thirty fences, battling not one circuit but two just in case they wanted a reminder of Becher's Brook or the Chair.

Mud-spattered faces and blood-curdling screams - and that's just punters in the crowd.

Red Rum proved victorious three times in the 1970s. Aldaniti brought grown men to tears. A story made into a film befittingly called Champions. Bob Champion fighting cancer while his trusty gelding - eleven years young - had leg problems that almost ended his career. 1981 told a story of hope over adversity. 

Everyone who loves the National has their own favourite memory. The day you won the greatest race steeplechase in the world. 

You cheered your winner home.

Prize Money

Did you know that the Grand National has total prize money worth over £1m. In fact, the winner gets £500,000. It's hardly surprising Gold Cup contenders (once too snobby visit Aintree) now relish the test. For punters, the National is a chance to win big money. Betting isn't all about losing. Mon Mome won at 100/1 in 2009. It wasn't just trainer Venetia Williams and jockey Liam Treadwell who had a smile on their face. I personally knew someone who won £2000 betting ante-post for £10.

When placing a bet, check out the prices at WilliamHill. There are plenty of big-priced chances with live chances of hitting the frame. Get lucky, you could be holding a betting slip to change your life. If you had bet on the horses to finish first and second last year, you would have won £3300 for £10.

So which horses could go well at huge odds? Now there is a question.

Looking at those high in the handicap we have one horse that could go well.
