Aintree Grand National - Day 3 - Saturday
Runners at the post for the Grand National at Aintree.
The climax of the three-day Grand National Festival, Grand National Saturday at Aintree is packed full of excitement, tradition and anticipation.
The feature race is of course the National itself, and over 600 million people worldwide will tune in to watch the race, along with over 65,000 spectators on the course. The supporting card isn't too shabby, either, with no less than three Grade 1 contests building up to the big race. The start time of the race was switched to 17.15 ahead of the 2016 renewal, so that it can reach as wide an audience as possible, and it's a move which seems to have paid off.
Tiger Roll created history by becoming the first horse since the great Red Rum to win back-to-back renewals of the National in 2019 - can he do the unthinkable and win a third straight title in 2020?
