Preview – The Grand National

Aintree Race Course

The biggest horse race of the year takes place this afternoon.

With the names of the riders announced on Thursday, the horses named as favourites by the bookmakers early on were Anibale Fly, Blaklion, Tiger Roll and Total Recall. There are four races across the day at Aintree so there is plenty of warm-up before the big one.

The Grand National is on ITV at 14.00, with the main race due to start at 17.15.
