The Cheltenham Gold Cup 4th What A Friend has been backed from 14s to 12/1 with for the Grand National.
He has also been introduced as the firm’s 3/1 favourite to go off market leader on the day.
spokesperson Charlie McCann: “It is no surprise that punters have come for What A Friend given he is 15lb well in on official figures after his terrific run at Cheltenham and we have had to clip him into 12s from 14s.
We also make him 3/1 to go off market leader for the race; we are asking will punters get behind AP and Don’t Push It again? Or perhaps Sam Waley-Cohen and Oscar Time as he bids to do the Gold Cup/National double? What about Ruby Walsh if he rides The Midnight Club? Or Silver By Nature if the heavens open? It looks a very difficult puzzle to solve at this stage.”
Who will go off market leader for the 2011 John Smith’s Grand National?
