2023 Midlands Grand National Betting Odds at Uttoxeter racecourse

Saturday, 18 March 2023

There are any number of horses who are in with a serious chance of landing a victory when it comes to this long distance race at Uttoxeter Racecourse. Guetapan Collonges has scored two wins this season and the Charlie Longsdon-trained runner could run a big race, although Kitty’s Light and Revels Hill are also among the market leaders and Does He Know is also in contention.

Much will depend on the weights allocated to each runner and we might see as many as twenty runners lining up in the Midlands, with plenty of horse racing betting sites offering extra places when it comes to the various runners. Let’s have a multiple approach and look to take a shortlist of horses to compete against their rivals.

2023 Midlands Grand National Betting Tips

Guetapan Collonges should go well off a mark of 10-3 and there was plenty to like about the horse’s previous victory which actually came at Uttoxeter Racecourse. Brian Hughes gave the horse a tremendous spin and he was able to land the spoils by a length ahead of race favourite Mister Coffey, with the horse having previously finished fourth in a handicap at Warwick.

Iwilldoit was the winner on that occasion and you can certainly get a backable price about the Sam Thomas-trained runner when it comes to the Midlands Grand National. Part of the reason why the horse is trading at big odds comes down to the fact that the horse is now carrying 11-12 and that is quite a big penalty.

Kitty’s Light goes off a mark of 10-11 and the seven-year-old won a handicap chase on the all-weather at Newcastle Racecourse when obliging as the 7/4 favourite. This was a two and a half length win and this was despite the fact that the horse didn’t jump fluently but still managed to record a nice win which suggests that she’s one for the shortlist.

Revels Hill will go for Harry Fry and could be well-handicapped and he was able to finish third at Ascot in the Swinley Handicap Chase, with the horse also performing well in the Royal Ascot Racing Club Handicap Chase when finishing second behind Your Darling. There could be some merit in an each-way bet if the horse is able to get into his jumping.
