Here's the full list of all the horses running in the 2013 Grand National ordered by their odds.



Seabass
Number 6 Age 10 Weight 11-6
Ran an excellent race to finish third last year, could he go two places better in 2013?
9-1

On His Own
Number 15 Age 9 Weight 11-0
Going well when falling last year. Has a massive chance this time. Ridden by Ruby Walsh
10-1

Cappa Bleu
Number 18 Age 11 Weight 10-11
Third in Welsh National and fourth here in 2012. Could still be well handicapped
12-1

Chicago Grey
Number 26 Age 10 Weight 10-7
Brought down early last season, trainer thinks he has improved
12-1

Colbert Station
Number 13 Age 9 Weight 11-1
Subject of a big gamble when winning at Leopardstown over Christmas. Champion Jockey AP McCoy's ride
12-1

Teaforthree
Number 10 Age 9 Weight 11-3
Bags of stamina, excellent jumper, top quality form. Our number one pick.
12-1

Balthazar King
Number 17 Age 9 Weight 10-12

Sunnyhillboy
Number 8 Age 10 Weight 11-4
Came agonisingly close last year, can he get revenge in 2013?
25-1

Always Waining
Number 20 Age 12 Weight 10-10
Connections have gone for the National rather than going for an amazing fourth win in the Topham. Should we take the hint?
33-1

Regular contender in big staying handicaps but hasn't won for a while
100-1

Mumbles Head

Some people do far worse to their kids than force them into heart attacks.
