About The Grand National
The most famous horse race on the planet, the Grand National is the single biggest day of the season at Aintree Racecourse in Merseyside.
Run over a mammoth trip of four miles, two furlongs and 110 yards, and run over the unique National course, the National is the ultimate test of a racehorse, and a maximum field of 40-runners head to post each season.
The race has undergone several changes in the last few years, both to boost the prize money and to improve the safety of the race for the participants - both equine and human. Indeed, with a prize fund of £1 million on offer since 2017, the race is becoming more and more attractive to the very best staying chasers in training - something shown by the fact that Tiger Roll became the first horse since the great Red Rum in 1974 to win back-to-back renewals of the Aintree spectacular.
The race hasn't been without drama during its history, and the 1993 renewal was infamously voided due to a false start. However, 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. We'll now look ahead to the latest running of the Grand National, so keep your eyes peeled on HorseRacing.net for news, views, pointers and tips in the run-up to the race at Aintree.
No race in the world can match the Grand National for history and prestige, and the roll of honour for the Aintree spectacular is a special one. Recent winners of the National include Mon Mome, who memorably cause a 100/1 shock in 2009, and Don't Push It, who gave AP McCoy his first and only win in the race 12 months later.
First run all the way back in 1839, the National has grown not only into a huge sporting event, but also a part of the culture in both the UK and around the world, with a huge TV audience sitting down to watch the race each spring.
Noble Yeats was a shock 50/1 winner of the 2022 Grand National for Emmet Mullins and Sam Waley-Cohen as he beat Any Second Now and Delta Work.
Last year's Grand National hero Noble Yeats is well fancied to emulate the legendary Tiger Roll by winning back-to-back renewals of the Aintree showpiece and the Emmet Mullins-trained raider ran a fine race to finish fourth in the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March. Lucinda Russell's Corach Rambler retained his Ultima Handicap Chase crown at Cheltenham and is now set to try and storm to glory on Merseyside, while Delta Work was a fine winner of the Cross Country Chase in mid-March and is set for another crack at the Grand National on April 15.
A classy winner of the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham, Gaillard Du Mesnil will be one of the premier Irish challengers for Willie Mullins and looks tailor-made for the test of a Grand National, while former runner-up Any Second Now is set to do battle for Ted Walsh and is looking to go one better than last season's second placed finish in this event. Longhouse Poet is another that ran well for a long way last year and was a winner last time out, while Coral Gold Cup winner Le Milos adds more depth to the event.

Grand National Fences
There are some iconic fences jumped during the Grand National and we pick out some of the most famous ones here:
Becher's Brook - 4ft 10in high
The most iconic fence at Aintree racecourse, Becher's Brook is named after Captain Martin Becher, who unseated in the ditch in the first Grand National in 1839. A different test these days with the landing side being raised, Becher's Brook is still a formidable obstacle for horse and rider.
The Chair - 5ft 2in high
The highest fence jumped in the Grand National, The Chair is only jumped once during the race, The fence is named after the chair the distance judge used to sit in to gauge the official distance between the winner and the runners behind.
Foinavon - 4ft 6in high
Named after the 1967 winner, Foinavon, this fence is one of the smaller obstacles on the track, but is iconic due to its history. Outsider Foinavon was the only horse to jump this obstacle en route to glory in the 1967 renewal, as all the other horses either fell or refused to jump.
The Canal Turn - 5ft high
Gaining its name from the nearby Leeds-Liverpool canal and is iconic for its sharp, 90-degree, left-hand turn that the runners have to take as soon as they have jumped the fence.
Valentine's Brook - 5ft high
With a 5ft 6in brook on the landing side, this fence is named after a horse called Valentine was said to have jumped it hind legs first in 1840.
