The grand national race time is normally within a range of 9 - 10 minutes so the grand national shoud finish around 17.25. Recent grand national times have been 9m, 3.50s, 9m 29.00s and 8m 56.80s over the past three years. However, with 40 runners at the start there are often delays to the Grand national start time so whilst the planned race off time is 17.15, the actual start of the grand national may be shortly after.

Why is the Grand National so popular?

The grand national race has a long history stretching back to the official first ever grand national race showing on many records as taking place in 1839. However there are records of a grand steeple chase at aintree going back further. It wasn't in fact until 1947 that the race was first named The Grand National Handicap Steeplechase. It is this long history and popularity as a major betting event that has captured the hearts of the British public.

Many of us grew up watching the Grand National as a child, taking part in sweepstakes and then eventually placing bets ourselves once we reached 18. Depending on our age we can recall famous winning horses such as Red Rum, Mr Frisk, Party Politics, Royal Athlete or maybe just the name of a winner if we have been lucky enough to back one. At Grand National Guide we are rather fond of Rule The World who won for us at advised odds of 50/1 the year before last. Make sure you check out our 2018 Grand National tips!
