Forget the office sweepstake and get your cash on one of FHM’s tips for the Grand National:

On The Nose

Hear The Echo won the Irish National in 2008 and has been trained with Saturday’s race in mind ever since. With a generous handicap, he looks the pick of the Irish contingent, who historically do well this weekend. Back to win at 16/1 with Sporting Bet.

Each Way

Knowhere was going well and placed handily when he lost his rider on the second circuit at Aintree last year. If there really are horses for courses then Ladbrokes’ 66/1 is worth an each way punt.

Early Winner

No fallers at the first last year so why not the same this year? Back it at 3/1 with Blue Square and you could be celebrating before the race proper has started.
