Junior Heads National At 12/1

David Pipe-trained Junior heads Coral’s betting for the 2012 John Smith’s Grand National at Aintree following the unveling of the weights.

Ballabriggs, the 2011 winner, and top weight Synchronised are amongst a host of 16/1 2nd favs, which also includes Prince De Beauchene, in from 25/1.

Willie Mullins has 12 entries at this stage and Coral go 9/4 that the prize head back across the Irish Sea while McCoy is 10/1 for a second victory and Paul Nicholls is 14/1 to break his National duck.

“Not many horses win at both Royal Ascot and the Cheltenham Festival, but Junior has achieved that feat, and the early betting suggests he could complete an historic treble with victory in the most famous race of all,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

“One of his closest market rivals is Ballabriggs, and having given the first family of Aintree an emotional win last year, Donald McCain will be hoping to emulate his late father Ginger once more by sending out the first back-to-back winner since Red Rum, while Prince De Beauchene caught our odds-compilers’ eyes, and is 16-1 (from 25-1) having been allotted a handy looking 10-6,” added Stevens.
