The latest betting for Aintree is available on the Grand National Odds Comparison Chart which is one off the most popular bets of the year. It is the toughest race in the sport for punters when it comes to finding the winner with a whole host of contenders in with a chance. There is however a fiercely competitive ante post market on offer through the season and we will be following all the latest market movers in the build up to the big race in April.

Grand National Form

One of the main reasons that the Grand National is so popular with the Public is that when it comes to Grand National Form there is so little form to go on. The Becher Chase at Aintree is perhaps the most important trial of the season as it is run over the same National fences as the big race in April. Punters can get an idea for which horses enjoy the big challenge of the fences when the Becher takes place in late November of early December each winter.

Over in Ireland, the Bobbyjo Chase often proves to be a good form guide with the National in mind and we will of course be keeping a close eye on that race once again this season.

Aintree Grand National Live

The Grand National at Aintree is one of the biggest sporting events on the calendar in the UK and as such receives TV coverage to match. Channel 4 are the main broadcaster of the race and the Grand National Live is one of their most important events each April, they give it extensive coverage on National day as well as through the three days of the Aintree Festival. The Grand National is a protected sporting event in the UK which ensures it receives the terrestrial coverage it deserves each season.

Aintree Racecourse

What makes this race different to all others is the special Aintree Racecourse which is only run on a couple of times a year. The horses generally have had little experience of the Grand National Fences and as such it is the biggest test of all for any jumper. To get a better understanding of what's facing the brave jockeys and horses just go to our section devoted to this. We think it is also useful to look back on previous Grand National Results as there can be some good hints to help you narrow down your 2017 Aintree Grand National Picks.
