The 2022 Grand National takes place on Saturday 9th April 2022 at Aintree Racecourse and we’ve got our tips ready. We’ll take you through our top suggestions, outsiders, and some offers to help you maximise your profits.
Delta Work @ 8/1 with Unibet
Delta Work is the horse to beat according to the bookmakers. This horse beat two-time Grand National winner Tiger Roll in the Glenfarclas Chase at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and could make the trip at Aintree in April. Delta Work has shown real class on heavy ground this year and should have the pace and stamina to compete at the front of the 2022 Grand National.
Snow Leopardess @ 8/1 with Betfair
Snow Leopardess was around the 20/1 mark with the majority of leading bookmakers earlier this year, but has been slashed into the favourite for the 2022 Grand National, with the weather forecast at Aintree this week likely to mean she’s in contention. With rain forecast, a potentially heavy ground good play into Snow Leopardess’ hands here, as she’s already shown her quality on a similar ground this season. She’ll be the horse to beat in this year’s Grand National.
Minella Times @ 11/1 with bet365
You’d be a brave punter to back against Minella Times in this year’s Grand National. Especially if Rachael Blackmore is in the saddle once again. Minella Times won the 2021 Grand National in convincing style and could be leading at the front once again if Blackmore can get the best out of this horse in this year’s race. This horse’s form hasn’t been the best this season, with Minella Times falling at Punchestown in December 2021, before being pulled up at Leopardstown in February 2022. However, if there is a horse that can rise to the big occasion, it’s Minella Times.
Cloth Cap @ 25/1 with Paddy Power
Cloth Cap was pulled up in the 2021 Grand National when going off as the bookies’ favourite. Not many would have tipped him to return to his best form in this year’s Grand National because of a break from the action, but it’s worth noting that he has had wind surgery since being pulled up last year at Aintree. With William Hill offering a price of 33/1 for Cloth Cap to win the 2022 Grand National with their non-runner, no bet promotion (NRNB), it’s certainly worth an each-way punt.
Mount Ida @ 33/1 with Betfred
Mount Ida has displayed his qualities at the Cheltenham Festival in the past and could be worth a punt at this year’s Grand National. This horse won the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, but struggled in the 2022 Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase, as he finished seventh out of eight in a disappointing run, where he struggled for pace. But over the longer trip, Mount Ida could impress, especially if this horse is at its best.
Anibale Fly @ 50/1 with Betfred
Anibale Fly has shown real quality in previous years at the Grand National. She’s come fifth and fourth in previous years at Aintree, before being pulled up in last year’s race. She’s got a vast amount of experience compared to the rest of the field at Aintree this year and is certainly worth an each-way bet at the sizeable price of 50/1 with Betfred.

Grand National Outsider Tips
It’s not always the favourites that win the Grand National, despite the likes of Tiger Roll and Minella Times claiming victory in recent years. There have been horses with sizeable odds that come away with one of the biggest titles in horse racing and the 2022 Grand National could see another big winner.
Below is our outsider tip for the 2022 event.
Lostintranslation @ 100/1 with bet365
This horse has shown glimpses of their quality in the past, but those days might be slightly beyond Lostinstranslation. He beat Master Tommytucker and Defi Du Seuil at Ascot back in November 2021, which recaptured the glory days of the 2019 season. Lostintranslation won at Haydock, Carlisle, Cheltenham, as well as a second-place finish at Aintree that year, and so this horse could be worth some funds, as he’s got an outside chance of claiming victory at the 2022 Grand National. His experience could come in handy at Aintree this year, and it’ll be interesting to see the tactics deployed by the jockey on Lostintranslation here.
Each-way betting is becoming increasingly popular amongst punters that are looking to wager funds on the Grand National, with there being relatively large fields heading into the main event at Aintree in April. There have also been some big-price horses placing in the Grand National over the years. We’re going to give you an each-way betting tip for the 2022 Grand National, which you can find below.

Alpha Des Obeaux @ 100/1 with Sky Bet
Alpha Des Obeaux is one of the most experienced horses set to run in the 2022 Grand National and could be worth an each-way bet at this year’s race. The 12-year-old finished sixth in the Glenfarclas Chase at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and is more than capable of challenging at the front of the 2022 Grand National. This horse finished 11th at the 2021 Grand National, and depending on your chosen bookmaker, could be worth a punt as an each-way bet this year, although it’s worth looking to see what places that your chosen bookie is paying out on at this year’s Grand National at Aintree.
