Grand National Weights

The weights for the Grand National are announced each year at a lavish ceremony.
The weights for the Grand National are announced each year at a lavish ceremony.

The announcement of the weights for the Grand National is always a landmark moment, and nowadays it has become trendy for the marks for the race to be announced at a lavish ceremony - either in London or Liverpool.

The marks which are handed to runners in the Grand National can differ slightly from their official ratings - particularly at the top of the order, where the weights tend to be condensed slightly in order to encourage the connections of the very best horses to run. Plans are hatched by connections well in advance of the announcement to ensure that their horse has the best weight possible, and trainers across the UK and Ireland attend the weights announcement with bated breath.

The idea of a handicap is that in a dream world, all of the horses will cross the line together, thus giving each runner a fair chance of winning. As such, the horses with the best form will therefore be given the highest amount of weight.
