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 last year’s race was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Tiger Roll was denied of the chance to make it three wins in a row becuase that cancellatation – and owners Gigginstown have withdrawn the legendary 11-year-old from this year’s renewal due to an “unfair weight burden”.
A £1 million in prize money will be at stake on Saturday April 10 at Aintree for the 2021 Grand National, the 173rd edition of the race. The winner receives a cool £561k – a life-changing amount for most horse racing owners.
