Grand National runners list: Final line-up is revealed
Who are the Grand National runners for 2022?
The final field for the 2022 Grand National is finally revealed and there was some late drama with Farclas and Caribean Boy both dropping out of the reckoning to allow Eclair Surf (12/1) and Fortescue (33/1) to sneak into the field as the final two Grand National runners.
With two-time winner Tiger Roll already removed from the list of possible runners alongside Conflated and Galvin, Henry de Bromhead’s Chris’s Dream joined them on the sidelines earlier this week .
Ireland are responsible for exactly half of the 40 Grand National runners as they look to win the race for a fourth straight time and it is no surprise to see those from the Emerald Isle dominating the top of the Grand National odds.
Others from Elliott’s Cullentra House stable to catch the eye include Run Wild Fred (20/1) and Mount Ida (20/1) off a mark of 156, who will attempt to become the first mare to win the race since Nickle Coin in 1951.
Last year’s third Any Second Now (8/1) is right towards the top of the betting following his victory in the Bobbyjo Chase. He has been given a mark of 159 to contend with, 7lb higher than in 2021.
Burrows Saint (20/1), fourth last time, shaped like the winner in 2021 before the petrol tank flashed empty two from home and is allowed to return off the same mark.
He is an interesting entrant, while others that catch the eye among the potential Grand National runners include Irish Grand National scorer Freewheelin Dylan (50/1), Mighty Thunder (33/1) and Becher Chase heroine Snow Leopardess (7/1), who has been backed into favouritism in recent days.
This year’s race is on Saturday April 9 at 5.15pm and will be live on ITV and Racing TV.
