GALVIN heads the betting at 14-1 for the 2022 Randox Grand National which has attracted 107 entries for the world’s greatest steeplechase at Aintree on April 9.

Ireland-trained runners represent almost half the field with 53 entries and are at the forefront of the betting with the first five in the market hailing from across the Irish Sea.

The Gordon Elliott-trained Galvin is followed in the betting (Paddy Power odds) by Any Second Now (16-1; Ted Walsh) who will be looking to improve on his luckless third place behind winner Minella Times (16-1: Henry de Bromhead) in last year’s National.

Run Wild Fred (16-1; Gordon Elliott) and Noble Yeats (20-1, Emmet Mullins) are next in the current prices for the unique four miles, two furlongs and 74 yards contest.

The Grand National weights will be announced on Tuesday, February 15.
