Who to back for the Grand National?
It must be one of the toughest racing questions there is.
Conventional wisdom of course states it is a race for mugs.
I’d agree to an extent.
If betting at starting price for example yes you can definately expect a high bookmaker over round against you. On the other hand if you work to the top prices of all competing bookmakers and betting Exchanges you are betting into close to a 100% book.
As such poor value is not they key issue.
It is perhaps more of a low strike rate issue assuming you are trying to pick the one horse that will win.
What will I be backing myself?
Not sure yet is the honest answer.
