    The Scottish National is one of the biggest races of the racing calendar and the huge prize purse reflects this fact. This promises to be a thoroughly entertaining contest and as we saw with the Aintree marathon last weekend, the absence of spectators will do nothing to dilute the excitement of the actual race itself. The big difference between the Grand National and the Aintree Grand National is that the high street bookmakers will be open and while many punters opt to bet online, the reopening of the bricks-and-mortar bookies will doubtless be a boost to the traditionalists as well as the betting operators themselves.

    Henry de Bromhead clinched first and second in what was an historic Aintree Grand National last weekend, Rachael Blackmore becoming the first female jockey ever to win the race when she rode Minella Times to victory, however De Bromhead won’t be following this up by sending any entries to Ayr on Sunday afternoon. Nevertheless most of the major UK stables will be represented on Sunday afternoon and the 30 final entries will be confirmed later this week.

    As usual we will be the first to bring you news of all the Scottish National Runners & Riders.

    2021 Grand National Latest News

    Vintage Clouds was successful in the Ultima Handicap Chase on the opening day of the 2021 Cheltenham festival, the Sue Smith inmate running in the opening handicap of the meeting for the fifth successive season. As such, Smith is eyeing-up more big-race glory for the eleven-year-old in the 2021 Scottish Grand National.

    This was a result hugely welcomed by connections and the veteran grey provided the north with a first win at the Festival since Hawk High won for Tim Easterby in 2014. On the back of this, Vintage Clouds will be aimed at the Scottish Grand National at Ayr Racecourse on 17th April and the bookmakers go general odds of 20/1 on the Sue Smith runner.

    The Scottish Grand National is the biggest race in Scotland and takes place each year at Ayr Racecourse in April. This steeplechase is open to runners aged five years and older and is run over a distance of 3 miles 7 furlongs and 176 yards. In total there are 27 fences over the distance.

    This race was first run in 1858 and involved 32 jumps, many of these being stone walls. The first races were held at Houston in Renfrewshire but the event moved to Bogside Racecourse near Irvine in 1867. It moved to its present location in 1965 when Bogside closed and it was increased to its present length at this time.

    Several winners of the Scottish Grand National have also won the Aintree Grand National, most notably Red Rum who won both races in 1974, the only horse ever to have won both in the same year.
