Arguably the most famous horse race in history, the Grand National takes place in April at Aintree Racecourse. The first Grand National took place in 1839 and has created some incredible sporting moments. The race is special as people who aren’t usually involved in the sport tend to have a punt on the race, which means it has something for everyone.

The Grand National is 4m2f with 30 obstacles to be navigated. Famous fences include Becher’s Brook and The Chair which are a stiff test for even the greatest racehorse. The race has a presitgious role of honour with greats such as Red Rum and most recently Tiger Roll, as well as surprise winners like Royal Athlete and Mon Mome. It is known to be one of the most gruelling races, with only the toughest horses prospering.

Tiger Roll has had much speculation as to whether or not he will run with owners, Gigginstown Stud, stating that his weight would be the deciding factor. For this year’s Grand National, the Gordon Elliot-trained 10-year-old will be running off top-weight (11st 10lb) and is the ante-post favourite at 11/2. It would be an incredible achievement if he could match the hat-trick of Red Rum, and is one that every racing fan across the world would love to see take place. Others hoping to stop Tiger Roll include the runner-up of the 2019 Grand National, Magic of Light, who is currently priced at 16/1, and Ramses De Teillee (20/1).


Red Rum is currently the leading horse in the history of the Grand National, winning a total of three (1973, 1974, 1977) closely followed by fan-favourite Tiger Roll (2018, 2019).

The leading trainer title is shared between three greats, Ginger McCain, Fred Rimell, George Dockeray, each with four wins.

The largest priced horse to win in the previous two decades is Mon Mome who stormed to victory under Liam Treadwell in 2009 priced at 100/1. With so many runners in the field and some incredibly tricky jumps to navigate, the race is known to be full of surprises. In 180 years, Mon Mome was only the fifth winner with these odds, and this race, in particular, was also Treadwell’s Grand National debut making the accomplishment even more spectacular.
