The Grand National is the most popular horse race in the world. People from all over the world like to place bets on this Aintree steeplechase and watch the forty runners and riders encounter a series of obstacles before the long run home.
The 2020 Grand National has unfortunately been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the race originally scheduled to take place on Saturday 4th April at 5.15pm UK time. The 2021 Grand National will take place on April 10th 2021 and will be televised on ITV1, while betting customers are able to access live streaming of the race through their online bookmaker.
The Grand National runners and riders are available at this Grand National site, along with Grand National odds so that you can choose the horses that you think will win the big race.
Punters have different ways of trying to pick the Grand National winner. Some customers back the horse that they get in the Grand National sweepstake, while others go for a horse with a name that they like.
Alternatively, many Grand National bets are placed on horses ridden by popular jockeys, while some punters like to enjoy Grand National betting on horses that have previously run well in the Grand National.
When it comes to backing the Grand National winner, we recommend that you look at the form of each horse in the race. It also pays to look at the Grand National weights considering that the Grand National is a handicap race which means that runners are carrying different amounts of weight.
Grand National free bets are often available when you open a bookmaker account on the day of the race, while those who start betting with an operator beforehand will get the chance to bet on the Grand National Festival which takes place between 8-10 April 2021.
Grand National betting is popular and you often get the Grand National winner odds at a big price such as 40/1, 50/1 or 66/1 so it’s worth looking outside of the favourites for your bets.
Grand National each-way betting is also popular and many bookmakers have increased Grand National place terms which means you can back a Grand National runner each-way and get paid out if it finishes in the first six places.
A Grand National each-way bet means that you don’t have to back the winner in order to make a profit and you can also bet on more than one runner for added excitement when it comes to watching this massive race.
Grand National Tickets were completely sold out, however refunds will be made automatically following the announcement that the event was to be cancelled.
While the cancellation of the Grand National is undoubtedly a massive disappointment for all concerned, tickets for the 2021 event will go on sale in just four months’ time and we will provide full details of how you can obtain these.
