The 2020 Grand National has unfortunately been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but the Virtual Grand National will be stepping into its place on Saturday. The UK's leading bookmakers have announced that all profits from the race will be donated to NHS Charities, and with that in mind, we won't be promoting the race on our platforms. Instead, we'll be looking ahead to the 2021 Grand National in 12 months time - in which Tiger Roll will hopefully bid to seal an historic hat-trick of wins in the race.

You can donate to the NHS charity here:-

Grey horses have developed something of a magical status when it comes to Grand National betting, with thousands of casual punters backing them each season on the morning of the big race. Only three greys have ever won the National, with Neptune Collonges being the most recent in 2012.

Who was the last grey horse to win the Grand National?

Neptune Collonges was not only the most recent winning grey of the Grand National in 2012, he is Paul Nicholls' one and only winner in the race. The 33/1 chance beat Sunnyhillboy by a nose in the closest ever finish in a Grand National.
