Grand National Tipsby Darren Brett
Ballabriggs was a brilliant winner for us in 2011 at an SP of 14/1 and a £10 each-way bet on each of our selections at SP would have returned you a whopping profit of £188.76! If you had taken a price at the time we first advised the tips your profits would have been over £200! Oscar Time
and The Midnight Club were also placed to give us a bumper return from our 2011 Grand National selections.
Here are our tips for the Grand National 2013
Grand National Tip 1 Teaforthree
ticks all the right boxes for a Grand National winner; he has plenty of stamina (He won the 2012 4 mile NH Chase), proven ability in big races (2nd in the Welsh National) and he is a top quality jumper having never fallen.

Grand National Tip 2 On His Own
On His Own
came down at Bechers on the second circuit in 2012 when going ominously well in third place. His jockey that day, Paul Townend, was quoted after the race as saying that 'he was running a very big race, I was getting a great ride off him' and whilst it's impossible to forecast for certain what would have happened, it's likely he would have been involved in the finish.
We added On His Own
as an ante-post selection before Xmas when he was 16/1 and he has been extremely well backed since then and looks likely to go off favourite for the Grand National

Grand National Tip 3 Roberto Goldback
was purchased at the start of this season with the Grand National as the horse's ultimate goal. His new connections were rewarded immediately when the horse won on his first start for Nicky Henderson, taking a 56k handicap at Ascot.
Given good ground Roberto Goldback has an excellent each-way chance and will have the assistance of perhaps the finest Grand National jockey of recent years, Barry Geraghty.
Sorry. Roberto Goldback is not running in the 2013 Grand National

Grand National Tip 4 Balthazar King
could be dismissed by many punters due to his recent history of racing in cross country events but 2007 Grand National winner Silver Birch had a similar profile.
Also, Balthazar King
was an excellent winner of a non-cross country race at the start of this season where he jumped superbly and his bold, attacking style of jumping should be well suited to this race.
