Grand National Steeplechase

The Grand National Steeplechase is recognised as the most popular horserace on the planet, and is watched by an estimated worldwide audience of over 600 million people every year.

The Grand National also offers the largest purse in national hunt racing, offering over £1 million in prize money.

Race Details

The Grand National is a Grade 3 handicap steeplechase run over a distance of 4 miles and 4 furlongs on Aintree racecourse’s Grand National course. The race is open to 6 year old and above racehorses.

The long distance covered by the runners in the Grand National is just one factor that contributes to its toughness. The other is the severity of the fences, with runners required to clear 30 fences to complete the race.

Handicaps play a pronounced role in how the Grand National plays out, and trainers will often withdraw heavily weighted entries from the race rather than expose them to dangers of jumping the dangerous Aintree fences under top weight.

Grand National Betting Tips

The Grand National is one of the biggest betting events of the year, with hundreds of millions of pounds wagered on the race by racing fans around the world. The race is famous for offering excellent value, with any number of prospective winners paying out at top prices.

The Grand National is also famous for being something of a lottery, as effective work by the handicapper can result in a highly open, competitive field. Nevertheless, certain trends have highlighted the fact that both weights and racehorse age have a measurable impact on the performance of entries in the race.

Grand National Winners

The severity of the Grand National has ensured that its winners, whilst not always rated amongst the finest in national hunt racing, have reserved a place in the sport’s history books.

Multiple winners of the race are unusual, which means that those horses who achieve more than one win are amongst the most celebrated in the world of horseracing. Red Rum, who overcame pedalostitis to win the race three times, is one of the most famous racehorses in national hunt history.
