One of the biggest horse racing events is the Grand National, which you are able to bet on every year.

What is the Grand National?

The Grand National is an annual handicap steeplechase over a distance of 4 miles and 2½ furlongs, (or 4 miles 514 yards (6.907 km)). Within that distance, the horses must jump a total of 30 fences over the course of two individual laps. It is the richest horse race in Europe, with recent prize funds having now surpassed the £1million mark.

The race has been run every year since 1839 and has been broadcast on free-to-air television in the United Kingdom since 1960. The Grand National is also notorious for its difficulty, featuring hurdles that are far bigger than what is found on many National Hunt tracks. In particular, Becher’s Brook, The Chair and the Canal Turn are all noted for their difficulty.

No single horse race gathers more attention from the general public in the United Kingdom than the Grand National, which has become a tradition for even non-horse racing fans to put wagers on. Every year the Grand National is run at Aintree in April, with there being an initial 40 horses entered into the race.

The unpredictability of the race makes it one of the most appealing to the public and Bet365 customers. There have been many examples of rank outsiders coming from nowhere to win the Grand National, resulting in punters picking up significant returns on their investments.

Between 2012 and 2017, we saw horses varying from in between 66/1 to 14/1 come away as the Grand National winner, showing just how serious the returns can be if you are able to spot a diamond in the rough.
