GRAND NATIONAL TIPS
The Grand National is the world's most famous chase, a 40-runner cavalry charge over 30 of Aintree's unique fences. It is a handicap, with the better horses carrying the most weight while the outsiders carry the least.
It’ll be an extra special running of the greatest steeplechase in the world after two years ago the race was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The 2021 Grand National was won by Minella Times. Rachael Blackmore became the first female jockey to win this race. But fans were barred from the racecourse for safety reasons, meaning she went back to the winners' enclosure in near silence.
Henry de Bromhead trained both the first and second placed horses as the 100/1 shot Balko Des Flos finished runner-up to his stablemate. Any Second Now, Burrows Saint and Farclas completed the frame.
A £1 million in prize money will be at stake on Saturday April 9th at Aintree for the 2022 Grand National, the 174th of the race. The winner receives a cool £561k – a life-changing amount for most horse racing owners.
