All you need at the races

The Grand National at Aintree is a British institution and with a quarter of the population expected to have a flutter on the race, it is the biggest betting event on the sports calendar.

The four-and-half mile marathon requires great stamina and bravery too, with 30 fences to jump including the daunting Bechers Brook and The Chair. While changes have been made to make the fences safer to jump, two circuits of the Grand Natinal course and 30 obstacles to tackle ensure it remains one of the most demanding equine contests. The race often throws up surprise winners, in the last six years we've seen a 100/1 winner in Mon Mome and two years ago Aurora's Encore won at 66/1. Even when the favourite does oblige as it has done three times in the last ten years, the odds are a big enough to give successful punters a decent profit for a small outlay.
