The Grand National is one of the biggest jumps races in the world and takes place at Aintree Racecourse annually in April.
The Grand National Festival is a three-day event with the featured race taking place on the final day. The race has been taking place officially since 1839 with the course and fences undergoing major changes in the race’s history.
Aintree Racecourse is where the Grand National takes place and is situated 5 miles outside of Liverpool. Over 150,000 people attend the Grand National over the three days each year to enjoy a series of races along with live entertainment and events.
The Grand National course is a distance of 4 miles and 4 furlongs making it the longest horse race in the UK and features 16 different fences. Throughout the race, jockeys complete two circuits of the course and jump a total of 30 fences with the final two missed on the second circuit.
The Grand National is broadcast live on ITV but viewers can also stream the Grand National live online via bookmaker websites such as Bet365.
The vast majority of bookmakers will accept bets on the Grand National with many offering customers betting offers for the race. These offers often include money-back specials, free bets, best odds guaranteed, extra places, faller refunds, non-runner no-bet and more.
Picking a winner of the Grand National isn’t an easy task with many of the runners failing to complete the race. Both professional gamblers and those who have never placed a bet before opt to bet on the Grand National which has made it a hugely popular event to watch for all of the family each year.
A total of 21 races take place at the Grand National Festival over three days of racing. The Grand National race is scheduled for the final day of the festival at 5.15pm.
