I Just Know becomes popular choice as he looks set to take one of the bottom weights.
I Just Know stepped up in trip last month to romp to victory at Catterick in the North Yorkshire Grand National Handicap Chase, but the money has only started coming for the Sue Smith-trained horse following weights being revealed for the Grand National.
It was confirmed last night that the eight year-old will carry 10st 4lbs come April, which leaves him 55th in the Randox Health Grand National weights’ list.
It’s likely he’ll get be one of the bottom weights and it appears the 100/1 price is far too good to turn down for the big one.
Since the weights were revealed, I Just Know’s odds have been cut with a selection of firms on Oddschecker but he still remains a three-figure price with one bookie.
Despite his odds suggesting an unlikely victory, Sue Smith’s horse has been the most backed today with 24% of all bets.
Total Recall has been the second most popular horse with punters since the weights were revealed. Willie Mullins' horse was 13th in the weights and has accounted for 11% of bets today.
The increase in support for the Irish nine-year-old has led to Total Recall’s odds being cut from 20/1 to as short as 12/1 (16/1 best odds).
Seeyouatmidnight’s odds were cut with the majority of bookmakers on Oddschecker overnight, and is now as short as 33/1 for the big race at Aintree. Cause of Causes is another that’s been slashed by the bookies, with the majority going 20/1 on Oddschecker.
Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: "The weight declaration always brings about movement in the Grand National market and it seems that punters are willing to take a small gamble on I Just Know. We've seen odds on the eight-year-old slashed from 100/1 to 40s in places, which is the biggest cut we've seen over the last 24 hours."
