The Grand National

The world famous Grand National is the most famous race in the calendar as much of the UK comes to a standstill to watch the horses negotiate the four and half mile race and its 30 hurdles.

It is a race that makes legends out of horses, and none more so than the great Red Rum who claimed victory three times in the 1970s. In more recent times the winner has tended to be more experienced with several winners aged 9 or 10 which is worth noting when considering your ante-post bet.

It is a great opportunity for the punter, whether new or experienced, to get involved in the ante-post betting ahead of the big day at Aintree in April.....
