The Grand National is only a matter of days away and we have tips and predictions for the 2018 Grand National at Aintree.

Total Recall is our top tip to take out the 2018 Grand National and he's looking to bounce back after falling in the Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase last month.

That run might have taken some steam out of the nine-year-old but Willie Mullins is a master trainer and he'll have this promising chaser ready to fire come April 14.

The son of Westerner had been in scintillating form prior to the Cheltenham fall, which included three consecutive wins.

His first came in the Ladbrokes Munster National Handicap Chase at Limerick where he cleared out to beat the likes of Alpha Des Obeaux and Phil's Magic, which are both in the Grand National betting markets.

He followed that up with another win at Newbury in the Trophy Chase and he was quickly establishing himself as one of the more promising chasers in the business. 

2018 started off with an easy win at Leopardstown over hurdles for Total Recall and although he fell last start, he was travelling well throughout.

The 11/1 on offer with bookmakers is well worth taking and if his recent form is anything to go by, look for Total Recall to loom into the race with a few jumps left.

Tiger Roll is an interesting type in the market at 12/1 and his experience and breeding could see him in the thick of the finish.

The Gordon Elliott-trained eight-year-old is looking to win the Grand National via the Glenfarclas Chase at Cheltenham and although this is a rise in class, he looked impressive in winning over Urgent De Gregaine.

That was his first win since capturing the National Hunt Challenge Cup in March 2017 and he was able to finish second behind Pallasator on the flat in the John Shortt Legends Challenge. He finished 8.5 lengths behind the winner on that occasion but it was a good hit out for future jumping races.

He has been a good money earner for punters throughout his career. The son of Authorized has earned punters £50.13 for every £1 invested and that's a great return.

Our third tip is Seeyouatmight, which is currently paying 20/1 with bookmakers.

The son of Midnight Legend might not have the credentials that other chasers have in this years Grand National, but the seven-time winner performed well in the Scottish Grand National and that form should stack up nicely.

He ran three lengths behind Vicente but made a mistake with three fences to jump. That likely cost him the chance of winning and he only lost second place right on the line.

He won't be at the top of the list for most bettors but he represents value at the current odds.
