It’s been eight years since the Grand National winner’s odds were shorter than 10/1, with five of the last seven winners being sent off at odds of 25/1 or larger.
In fact, the average odds of the last 10 winners is just over of 33/1, with 100/1 2009 victor Mon Mome included in this group.

The Grand National is unique because not only do the horses run over the marathon distance of over four miles, but they jump 30 fences in total.
