Age of Mon Mome

Grand National Winners Age

The age of the horse has become an increasingly important betting trend when studying the form to see who you think will win the Grand National. For example, the trends would suggest that seven year olds have a bad record in the race, whilst once horses reach twelve you can probably put a line through them. There will always be a case against the rule, but we've provided you with a guide on what aged horses traditionally stand up in the Grand National trends.

There has been no winner under the age of eight years old in the Grand National for 70 years.
