Next up as we continue our look at all the horses who are set to compete in the 2024 Aintree Grand National is one who hasn’t been seen on track at all so far in the calendar year. No horse this century has come into the race and won without at least one run between the start of January and the big race but is this the one to buck that trend?

The team here at Betfred Insights have put together a vetting profile for this horse and you can find out exactly what Mahler Mission’s Grand National Odds are along with what his chances are of going on to win the race this year…

Mahler Mission Grand National 2024 Betting Profile

  • Horse Name: Mahler Mission
  • Horse Age: 8
  • Trainer: John McConnell
  • Jockey: Ben Harvey
  • Weight: 11-4
  • Betfred Odds (as of Midday, Thursday, April 11, 2024): 18/1
  • Previous Grand National Results: N/A

Trainer John McConnell enjoyed a rather interesting and mixed 2023 having finally won at the Cheltenham Festival, when bargain buy Seddon won the Plate Handicap before backing that up with victory at the Punchestown Festival in the Fitzwilliam Sports Handicap Hurdle.

Seeing promising Kinbara suffer a fatal injury and Encanto Bruno being moved from his stable to that of rival Gavin Cromwell could not have been easy and form deserted the yard throughout the second half of the year, due in large part to aspergillus in the hay.

2024, however, offers brand-new hope and the extremely talented Mahler Mission could lead him all the way to the Winner’s Enclosure at Aintree.

This eight-year-old fell when leading the WellChild National Hunt Challenge Cup Amateur Jockeys' Novices' Chase at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival as a 13/2 shot with two fences to go whilst four lengths clear. That would be the only occasion in the whole of the campaign when this horse didn’t finish at least in the top three positions, including a win over at Navan where he beat the talented Tenzing.

Backing Mahler Mission to win the Grand National will come with a sense of blind faith that he’s in good form. Not seeing him race since 2023 has to be a bit of a concern but it could mean that he’s fresh and ready for what could be the greatest day of his young career. If he finishes the race, then you’d have to fancy this horse to place, and with Betfred paying out seven places this year for the big race, he’s going to be a trendy each-way pick who’ll also see some money on the nose.
