For all Baie Des Iles’ fans out there, you have a reason to worry. Unfortunately, the fall that the horse experienced at the Down Royal on Saturday may cost her the Randox Grand National. Although the decision is yet to be confirmed, her trainer Ross O’Sullivan said that they will not commit her to the race before they are satisfied that she has recovered fully. Before she fell, the horse was at the front and gaining momentum but with just three fences to glory, she toppled and fell according to her jockey Paul Townend. An ante-post bet at the horse definitely has some of the best odds across most betting platforms given its risky nature. Nevertheless, since the chances of the horse not competing are greater than the vice versa, a No-Runner-No-Bet, is one of the best ways to go about her. It was agreed that the horse is taken to France as a decision is made on whether she will be suitable for competitors such as Tiger Roll.

In addition to the £1 million prize money mentioned earlier in the article, all the horses that will make it to the top ten positions will not go home empty-handed. Although this might seem a small number compared to the total number of horses racing, it is the farthest any horseracing event in the world has ever been willing to stretch to. This is how the money is divided: The first horse receives £561,000, the runners-up £210,000, the third around £100,000, the 4th£52,000and the fifth about £26,000. Jockeys’ remunerations are fixed but most have arrangements for some consideration from the horses' owners in case they manage the top positions. Some even go ahead and make it professional by agreeing with the owners the ratio in which they will share the prize money. The crown does not only bring with it the prize money but also appearances. The winner gets to receive payments to appear in certain events and coupling this with the difference existing between their prizes, the competition for the position is very high.
