Grand National 2021: Cloth Cap cut to clear favourite
The Grand National 2021 weights have been announced and dual winner Tiger Roll has been allotted 11st 9lb. The 11-year-old has been cut to as short as 10/1 by some bookmakers since the announcement, but several are standing firm at the best price of 20/1.
Whether Tiger Roll will run is up to owner Michael O’Leary, but having missed out on an attempt to equal Red Rum’s hat-trick last year, racing fans will be hoping he gets his chance.
The Trevor-Hemmings owned Cloth Cap is the most significant market mover since the weights were announced. The nine-year-old was available at 25/1 earlier today but is now as short as 12/1. At a best price of 16/1, he’s the new favourite for this year’s Aintree showpiece.
Kimberlite Candy another market mover
Kimberlite Candy has been clipped in from 25/1 into a best price of 20/1, having been allotted 10st 10lbs.
Presenting Percy follows the top three in the market at 25/1, but is as short as 16/1 in places. The dual Cheltenham Festival winner was scratched from the Gold Cup last week and is heading for Aintree.
2019 runner-up Magic Of Light is also a best price of 25/1, while Christian Williams’ Virtual Grand National hero Potters Corner is another at those odds.
