Grand National 2022: Notable outsiders worth a mention


The 2022 Randox Grand National is now just two weeks away and with many leading UK bookmakers going ‘non-runner no bet’ on the famous steeplechase, it could be worth considering a couple of small each-way bets at hefty prices.

Many of the bookmakers are already offering punters six places on the Randox Grand National and as such, this gives everyone more of a chance when backing big-priced outsiders at each-way. With that in mind, we take a look at a couple of worthy considerations on 9th April.


Fiddlerontheroof  25/1

This is an interesting candidate at a hefty 25/1 price. This runner has contested some big races at Grade 1 and finished second to Monkfish at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival Brown Advisory. His stables were somewhat out of form when he finished in third position in the Mildmay in 2021 and since then has had three excellent runs.

He proved his stamina when scoring from a comeback up the challenging Carlisle hill before going down by a half length in the Newbury Hennessy and while he struggled to stay over a three-miler at Ascot last time out and finished second behind Fortescue, the ground was appalling and we should see far better conditions on Grand National day. The softer side of good would be close to perfect.

A burden of 11st 3lb seems extremely fair for his first crack at the National fences, especially given what he has achieved. In recent years there has been something of a trend for horses to triumph in this race without ever before tackling the course and at 25/1 he is a decent price.


Kildisart  –  40/1

This runner catches the eye at a solid 40/1 price. He should realistically have contested this race in the past but he’s made just a single appearance since November 2020. There was optimism about his chances in the Greatwood Gold Cup when he returned to duty at Newbury early this month but he ultimately finished in fourth position after running on in his own time, a hint that this could be a contender which needs a far longer trip.

His best performance was in the Ultima at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival when he achieved a second-placed finish and he was noted as needing a lengthy trip even then. His burden of 10st 10lb for the Grand National seems ideal and he should give its a decent run over a track on which he has yet to appear.
