Tidal Bay Creates all the Right Waves with Betfred for This Year’s Grand National

February 12, 2013

LONDON, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Top weight Tidal Bay is becoming increasingly popular for the John Smith’s Grand
National at 16/1.

Betfred, the official betting partner of the Grand National, have clipped the Paul
Nicholls trained gelding from 20/1 to 16/1 after it was revealed the Lexus Chase winner
has been given 11 st 10 lbs at the official Weights Lunch held today at the Savoy Hotel in
London.

Betfred spokesman Mark Pearson,

“Although no top weight has won the National since Red Rum in 1974 the handicapper has
definitely given him some leeway and of course never under estimate the Paul Nicholls
factor following his success in last year’s race.”

There are now three co-favourites for the National with last year’s third Seabass in
from 16/1 to 14/1, joining the Willie Mullin’s pair of On His Own and Prince de Beauchene
at the head of the market.

Three of the first four in the betting, On His Own, Prince de Beauchene and Tidal Bay
are all owned by Andrea and Graham Wylie and Betfred make them 5/1 to have the winner of
the National.

Finally Betfred boss Fred Done this week paid out early on Manchester United winning
the Premier League title, costing him over GBP300,000. His friend Sir Alex Ferguson is
16/1 with http://www.betfred.com to land the Grand National and cost him more cash.
The Manchester United manager has both Harry the Viking and What A Friend entered in the
race.
