About The Grand National

The Grand National horse race is run annually on the first Saturday in April at Aintree racecourse, Liverpool. It is the ultimate test of the thoroughbred. The near four and a half mile course includes 30 daunting steeplechase fences.

This year the race is on Saturday April 2 and it is the last chance you will have to see Tony McCoy ride over the famous Aintree fences. The 19-times champion jockey is retiring this year but if he wins the big race on Saturday he has indicated that he will likely retire there and then. If you believe the odds then he has a huge chance as he rides the favourite Shutthefrontdoor for owner JP McManus and trainer Jonjo O’Neill.
