Children List has been the least backed horse in the race
With bookies offering generous each-way terms in the Grand National it’s not rare to see horses with odds around the 100/1 backed with the similar amount of enthusiasm as the shorter priced favourites.
However, Children’s List hasn’t seen the same amount of loving from punters as his other competitors.
The Willie Mullins’ trained horse has been the least backed horse in the race via Oddschecker in the last 24 hours, only accounting for 0.74% of bets in the market.
Bettors who study the form ahead of the Grand National surely have been put off by the horse pulling up last time out when stepping up in trip in heavier conditions.
In fact, form would suggest not much is going for this Mullins entry, but you can’t underestimate the great man on a day like today.
Betfair are the only firm going 100/1 on the horse, with five operators pricing him up as short as 66/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “If Willie Mullins is to win his second Grand National it's extremely unlikely it will be Children's List whose praises we are singing come the end of the race.
“If you're a fan of the Irish trainer then Total Recall is the direction you want to be looking.”
