Taking place in early April at Aintree Race course in Liverpool, England, The Grand National has firmly established itself as the greatest horse race on earth. The unique mix of a gruellingly long course and heart-cluthingly high ‘fences’ together with so much tradition and legend make the race an absolute must on the sporting calender.

Since its inaugural running in 1839, The National has thrown up so many great stories of heroism, luck and tragedy that the race has captured the imagination like no other. Race fans as well as the general public line the streets outside betting shops to take part in a bit of grand national betting, and everyone has an opinion on who will win.

Last years winner was 7-1JF Comply Or Die and the same horse is sure to be a strong contender this time round. The extra weight he will be carrying looks unlikely to put off the the punters, who well remember how gracefully he sauntered around Aintrees gruelling 4 mile course, and how easily he mastered her 30 fences. Last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Denman has also been entered and should be amongst the favourites, but it is worth noting that Only Grittar (7/1), West Tip (15/2), Rough Quest (7/1), Earth Summit (7/1) and Hedgehunter (7/1) have been returned at less than 10/1 since 1978.
