Grand National 2023 Runners & Odds: Entries headlined by 2022 winner Noble Yeats

Last year's winner Noble Yeats heads the market for the Grand National 2023 after the entries for the race closed this lunchtime.

Noble Yeats

Noble Yeats (14/1 best price favourite) heads the 85 entries (down from 107 last year) for the Grand National 2023, although the eight-year-old's participation in the blue riband race at Aintree on Saturday 15th April may depend on his plans for the Cheltenham Festival.

Having finished 2nd to Ahoy Senor in the Cotswold Chase on Cheltenham Trials Day last month, his best price for the Cheltenham Gold Cup held firm at 8/1 (since nibbled into 7s).

Ryan Summerville (@ryanOTHx) had this to say at the time: "I thought the Cotswolds showcased Noble Yeats as the best potential Gold Cup candidate. Noble Yeats was outpaced when the race kicked into gear but he stayed on strongly up the hill.

"That put to bed any questions about his course form and it looked the perfect trial for March. I am surprised he hasn't been clipped in a bit as 8/1 looks a bit big after that run."

Any Second Now

Another of the notable entries for the Grand National in April is last year's runner up Any Second Now (20/1), who also finished 3rd in 2021 behind only Minella Times and Balko Des Flos. 

The 11-year-old was 4th of seven in the Irish Gold Cup at the Dublin Racing Festival last weekend, 15 lengths behind the winner and Cheltenham Gold Cup ante-post favourite Galopin Des Champs.

Corach Rambler

A third key entry is Corach Rambler (best price 20/1), last year's Ultima Handicap Chase winner, who could feature in this weekend's Grade 2 Betfair Denman Chase at Newbury having not been seen since a 4th place finish in the Coral Gold Cup Handicap Chase at the same venue in November.


The same race at Newbury could also be the stage for Iwilldoit’s second run out of the year – his first being a 2 ¾L win at Warwick last month. He remains entered for the Grand National in April for what would be his debut in the race (best price of 25/1).

Weights for the big race will be revealed on Tuesday 21st February.
