When weighing up who to back in the Grand National, one of the key things to take into consideration is which horse is the top weight. This year, the honour – if you can call it that – falls on Anibale Fly to be the top weight in the 2019 Grand National.
The JP McManus owned Bay Gelding tops the weights at 11st 10lbs. This is 4lbs heavier than Valtor (11st 6lbs), and 5lbs heavier than short priced favourite, Tiger Roll, who is 11st 5lbs.
