Punters turn to veterans in Grand National with favourite Cloth Cap weak in market

Long-term Grand National favourite Cloth Cap still sits at the summit of the market but he has drifted out to around 11/2 across the board as punters turn to veterans on the day of the National. Second favourite Burrows Saint has also drifted noticeably from a general 8/1 to around 10/1 with most bookmakers.

Punters seem to be hunting out larger priced alternatives to the principles in the market and the big winner in this regard has been Takingrisks who has shortened substantially over the past couple of days. The 12-year-old was up for grabs at as much as 40/1 on Thursday, however some firms are now going as low as 12/1. Money has also been aimed towards Brian Ellison-trained Definitly Red who has gone from a general 66/1 to as low as 33/1 with some firms.

Yesterday some firms saw a noticeable shift for veteran Sub Lieutenant who has experience over the Grand National fences and was shortened from 60/1 into just 40/1 overnight. Most firms now go a general 50/1.
