The 2017 Grand National was the classiest field of runners ever and 19 runners completed the course. That was the joint highest number of finishers since 21 horses completed the course in 2005.

First Fence Fallers

Bookmaker Bet 365 have added the following market regarding fallers at the first fence for 2019:
All runners to jump the first fence is 6/4

A bet which will be all over after the first fence! Hopefully, your win bet won't be!
The fast pace the runners travel to the first fence often results in fallers.
1998, 2000 and 2006 saw five fallers and 2002 saw nine fallers
2013 saw no first fence fallers
2014 saw one faller at the first fence
2015 saw three first fence fallers
2016 saw one faller at the first fence
2017 saw two fallers at the first fence
2018 saw two fallers at the first fences
Very hard to predict of course but let's hope for no first fence fallers.

UK or Irish trained winner?

Paddy Power are favouring an Irish trained winner at 8/11 whilst a UK trainer winner is Evens
The Irish won it last year with Tiger Roll and also won it back in 2016.
In the bigger picture, nine of the last eleven winners have come from UK trained runners.
In the long-term looking at the past twenty winners, its a twelve to eight split in favour of the UK!

The Winning Distance

At least with this bet, you are guaranteed an interest right until the end of the race! Winning distances have varied greatly over the last ten years with the average being around 10 lengths. It's a good idea to pay attention to the going with this novelty market as well.
Bet 365 have a winning distance market up for the 2019 Grand National with the current choices:

Under 3 Lengths at 9/4
Between 3 & 6 Lengths (Inclusive) at 9/4
Over 6 Lengths at Evens
