Sky Bet have gone non-runner, no bet, best odds guaranteed after the Randox Health Grand National weights were relased in London on Tuesday.
The Leeds-based firm already have the non-runner/no bet concession in place for all races at the Cheltenham Festival and are also paying five places at a quarter the odds on all each-way bets.
Blaklion heads the market at 10-1 following his smooth win in the Becher Chase over the famous fences in December, having previously finished fourth in last year's National. Cause Of Causes (20-1), runner-up to One For Arthur, is another from the class of 2017 towards the heads of the betting.
"The release of the Grand National weights is always eagerly-anticipated and now Sky Bet punters can place their bets on the great race knowing they will get their money back if their horse doesn't line-up," Sky Bet Racing PR Manager Michael Shinners said.
"As ever it looks a fiercely competitive renewal and while Blaklion and Total Recall have been popular so far, there will be plenty more movers between now and the tapes going up at Aintree."
