Grand National Odds: Snow Leopardess to end 10-year wait for a grey winner?

Snow Leopardess is a best price 14/1 to become the first grey winner of the Grand National since Neptune Collonges in 2012.

The first dam to run in the Grand National for 100 years is the leading British contender and sits at the top of this list of most backed ante-post horses for the Aintree race so far this year.

The 10-year-old mare trained by Charlie Longsdon, who had a foal during a two-year absence from the track between September 2017 and November 2019, held off Hill Sixteen to land the Unibet Becher Chase in a photo finish at Aintree in December.

Since the start of this year, Snow Leopardess – still 14/1 with several leading bookmakers - has taken 6.94% of the bets on the Grand National 2022 through oddschecker. She is also the most backed ante-post horse of the entire season outside of those for the Cheltenham Festival.

Writing in his first Grand National preview, which includes this three-horse shortlist less than two weeks out from the race, Andy Holding had this to say on the chances of Snow Leopardess.

"Three straight victories for Snow Leopardess allied to her colour will ensure Charlie Longsdon’s grey is bound to be a popular choice, but it’s not just pure sentiment that may see her close to going off favourite come next weekend. 

"Classy enough to finish fourth at Grade 2 level over fences, she’s also proven over the National fences with her victory in the Becher Chase here earlier in the campaign, and her prominent run style suggests that she’s likely to evade early carnage in behind. All in all, she makes plenty of appeal on many fronts."

Only three grey horses have won the Grand National over four different years - The Lamb (1868 and 1871), Nicolaus Silver (1961) and Neptune Collonges (2012).
