With 40 confirmed runners for the 2023 Grand National, now is the perfect time to get your bets placed for this prolific race. However, with 40 horses listed in the pre-race markets, there are now huge discrepancies in the odds spread across the board. But if you keep your focus on the main favourites, you’ll no doubt see the most recent Noble Yeats odds:
- Ladbrokes – 12/1
- Betfred – 11/1
- William Hill – 12/1
If this name rings a bell, I’m not surprised. You may know this horse for his spectacular performance in the 2022 Grand National. As a reminder, Noble Yeats won the 2022 Grand National at a pre-race price of 50/1. This instantly put Noble Yeats on the radar of punters around the UK, and it turned the horse into an overnight sensation.
As for the 2023 Grand National, Noble Yeats is back for another bite of the cherry. Only this time around, he is in the mix as one of the main contenders. With that said, what should you read into the current Noble Yeats odds? Let me provide an overview right now.
What’s Fueling the Noble Yeats Odds of 12/1?
As things stand, thanks to the odds of 12/1 listed at Ladbrokes, Noble Yeats is the joint 3rd favourite to win the Grand National today. His odds are matched by Any Second Now, and they are narrowly behind the joint 2nd favourites – Delta Work and Corach Rambler. These two horses have a price of 9/1 at the moment. So clearly, Noble Yeats is right there with the major names this year.
However, while he is the reigning champion for the Grand National, do the Noble Yeats odds reflect his true chances? Allow me to reveal two key reasons why he is still a top contender this year.
4th Place Finish at the Cheltenham Gold Cup
On an annual basis, the Grand National follows shortly after the Cheltenham Festival. Therefore, this racing meet always serves as a solid indicator of where a horse is at in terms of form. And in the case of Noble Yeats, I was impressed with his performance in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Obviously, this is a huge event, and he rose to the occasion.
He might have finished 4th, but he showed that he still has the staying power in these longer events.
Proven Success on the Aintree Course at This Distance
Of course, I had to reiterate how huge it is that Noble Yeats won the 2022 Grand National. The stars just seemed to align for Noble Yeats and his jockey, Sean Bowen, last year. Yet personally, I don’t believe that you can win an event like the Grand National by accident. And while this still captures the headlines for Noble Yeats, people forget that he backed this up with another long-distance victory at Aintree in December 2022.
Noble Yeats Odds for the 2023 Grand National – Worth the Punt?
With a price of 12/1, I feel that this shows staggering value given that Noble Yeats is the reigning champion. However, I’ve got to ask – can he really outlast horses like Delta Work, Any Second Now, and others? Sure, he could, but I wouldn’t say that this is an inevitability, not by a long way. So while yes, the Noble Yeats odds are worth taking, I’d go in lighter on this market if you plan on backing him for the win.
