2022 Grand National Runners - The Final list

The Grand National is UK's annual horse race that stops the nation. This year's edition will be an extra special running of the greatest steeplechase in the world after Rachael Blackmore capped off her miracle season with victory on Minella Times in 2021.

But fans were barred from the racecourse for safety reasons, meaning she went back to the winners' enclosure in near silence.

The 2022 Grand National will be held at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday 9th April at 5.15pm. Sponsored by Randox Health, it is a UK handicap steeplechase over 4 miles 514 yards with horses jumping 30 fences over two laps.

The £1 million showpiece is again set to feature a maximum field of 40 after 77 entries stood their ground at Monday's declaration stage.

Who are the Grand National favorites?

ANY SECOND NOW trained by Ted Walsh heads the betting for the 2022 Grand National. He recorded an impressive third-place finish in last year's renewal, especially considering that he was hampered during the race.

DELTA WORK is another popular entry, having beaten Tiger Roll to the post in the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase at Cheltenham whilst last year's winner MINELLA TIMES has seen a 14lb rise in the weights as he bids for back to back victories for Henry De Bromhead.

The likes of BURROWS SAINT (a former Irish Grand National winner), SNOW LEOPARDESS, ESCARIA TEN, ENJOY D'ALLEN, FIDDLERONTHEROOF, CLOTH CAP and RUN WILD FRED are also attractng plenty of bets while the best market movers are ECLAIR SURF and DE RASHER COUNTER.

Double winner Tiger Roll will miss this year's renewal having run his last career race at last month's Cheltenham Festival.

What are the Grand National Reserves? 

The Grand National generally has a big number of reservers to late withdrawals and non runners. Anyway, a maximum field of 40 runners will be allowed to run on the Aintree fences, with the final declarations revealed at 10am on Thursday. The remaining horses - the lowest rated ones that don't make the cut - will be balloted out 48 hours before the contest.

The reserves are:

Commodore (FR) 10 10 4 Mrs C Watson & Mrs S Graham Venetia Williams 50-1

Romain de Senam (FR) 10 10 4 Judith Wilson David Pipe 100-1

School Boy Hours (IRE) 9 10 4 Mr John P. McManus Noel Meade Ireland 33-1

Roi Mage (FR) 10 10 2 Mr D. G. Pryde Patrick Griffin Ireland 66-1


UPDATE: Commodore, School Boy Hours and Romain de Senam, all reserves, will get a run in the 2022 Grand National after a spate of last-minute withdrawals.

Easysland and Phoenix Way were both pulled out for being under the weather while Lord Du Mesnil was taken out because the ground was not soft enough.

What is the final list of Grand National runners? 

The initial entry date is at the end of January and then there are further stages through to the Grand National day when runners need to be confirmed at declaration stages which are sometimes called forfeit stages. At each stage a runners connections may need to pay a further entry fee to confirm their runner.

The last declaration stage takes place at 10am on the Thursday before the race at which point the top 40 runners in the weights are left in along with four reserves.

  • Entries closes January 28
  • Entries revealed January 29 (107 entries)
  • Weights revealed February 11
  • First scratchings deadline February 25
  • Second scratchings deadline March 18
  • Five-day confirmations April 4
  • Final declarations 10am April 7.

Grand National Non Runner No Bet

Non Runner No Bet is relatively simple concept to understand and well worth taking on any ante-post bet should it be offered. The offer allows you to place a bet on a horse in the build up to the race and if it doesn’t make the starting gates, you’ll receive your stake money back.

What this does is essentially void your bet if your horse doesn’t run, meaning you don’t lose any money for no real reason.

Frequently Asked Questions  

When is the Grand National 2022?

The National is the highlight of Aintree's Grand National meeting at Aintree Racecourse in Merseyside, which this year runs from Thursday, April 7 to Saturday, April 9. The 2022 Grand National takes place at 5.15pm on Saturday.

What is the Grand National?

It's the most famous horse race on the planet with a £1 million prize pool.

The race is open to horses aged 7 and older with a handicap of 120 or higher. All entries must also have finished in the first four in a chase of 3 miles or longer.

30 fences are taken by a 40-runners field over a trip just short of 4¼ miles.

The race hasn't been without drama during its history. The 1993 renewal was infamously voided due to a false start. In 1997 the race was moved on Monday after an IRA bomb scare cancelled the original race on the Saturday, while there was only four finishers in a particularly attritional 2001 renewal. The event was cancelled for the first time in its 180-year history in 2020 due to health concerns surrounding the outbreak of Covid-19.

How to bet on the Grand National?

Betting on the Grand National is many people’s only wager of the year so can prove confusing for many who look to navigate through online bookmakers and each horse racing market.

But it really doesn’t need to be a hardship and betting on horse racing can be incredibly simple, particularly the Aintree Grand National.

The entire process of placing a bet on the Grand National can be done in just a few clicks. Learn here how to bet a horse on the Grand National!

What TV channel is the Grand National on?

You can watch all the action live on ITV1 and Racing TV.

How many horses run the Grand National

A maximum field of 40-runners will head to post on race day. The 40 Grand National runner line-up, as well as reserves in case there are any late withdrawn runners, will be officially confirmed on April 7. If horses withdraw and become non runners after this point then the field will start with less than 40 runners.

Who won the Grand National last year?

The 2021 Grand National was won by Minella Times. Rachael Blackmore became the first female jockey to win this race. 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.  

What about Grand National non runners?

Horses may have injuries or ilnesses but there are a number of additional reasons. Some horses prefer certain ground conditions (eg. heavy ground) and if these aren't in place connections may decide not to run their horse. Some horses have multiple entries and may decid to run a different race (eg. the Irish Grand National that is run few weeks later).

Who is the most successful trainer in the Grand National

Three trainers have recorded four wins in this race -  George Dockeray, Fred Rimell and Ginger McCain. McCain saddled  Amberleigh House in 2004 to add to his three victories with legendary horse Red Rum (1973, 1974 and 1977), one of the few Grand National horse to have won the race over consecutive years.

Who is the most successful jockey in the Grand National?

George Stevens claimed the National five times back in the 19th century. His most recent victory was recorded in 1870.

What is the most famous fence at the course and other tricky fences?

The Becher's Brook is the most notorious obstacle over the National course. It is named after Captain Martin Becher, a jockey who fell at this stage and hid in the brook to avoid injury. Jumped as the 6th and 22nd fence, it may not be the biggest obstacle but its difficulty comes from the fact the landing side is 10 inches lower than the take off side.

Other famous Grand National fences are the Valentine's Brook (fence 9 & 25), the Chair (fence 15), Foinavon (fence 7 & 23), and Canal Turn (fence 8 & 24).

When are the Grand National weights revealed? How are weights determined?

During February each year all the Grand National entries are allotted running weights for the race. Weights are based on the official rating which the handicapper gives each of the horses entered.

Actually, each horse already has an official rating for use in handicaps but the Grand National official handicapper will adjust this where they think necessary to produce a rating just for this race.

What are the other notable Grand National?

The Irish Grand National is run at Leopardstown on Easter Monday. The Scottish Grand National is run at Ayr towards the end of March or early April. The Welsh Grand National takes place at Chepstow Racecourse in December each year.

Are there any trials for the Grand National?

There are two big races in the UK which serve that defined purpose - the Becher Chase at Aintree in early December, and the Grand National Trial at Haydock every February.

Other races that are considered good preps are the Welsh National at Chepstow, the Cross Country Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, the Grand Sefton Handicap Chase (which is a National Hunt Chase race run over the Grand National fences at Aintree), the Eider Chase at Newcastle, the Grimthorpe Chase at Doncaster, the Betfair Chase, and the Paddy Power chase. Moreover, the Bobbyjo Chase tends to be a target for Grand National runners in Ireland.

Has any horse won two Grand Nationals in the same year?

Red Rum was the champion of two grand nationals in 1974 when it won the Aintree showpiece and Scottish National. No other horse has previously won two nationals in the same year, though some horses won both races in different years.

Furthermore, no horses have won the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival and this marathon trip at Aintree.
