Grand National 2023 - Tips and Trends

This years Grand National 2023 is Saturday 15th April. The National is always run at Aintree over 4m 2 1/2 furlongs. The race last year was won by Noble Yeats who was winning as a seven year old. This shows the change in the size of the fences has really impacted the profile needed to win the race. Looking at trends since the fence changes could be a waste of time. We wouldn't be surprised if some of the seven years olds run well again.
