  • The highest number of finishers was was 23 in 1984 and the lowest number was 2 in 1928
  • The going is key to the number of finishers with vast differences between heavy (10% and 16% of runners finished) and good (37% average from 8 races).
  • The Grand National 2016 looks set to be the classiest field of runners ever. With the going likely to be good to soft, we think that we could be in for a good number of finishers this year. We are tempted by Betfair odds on 19-20 and 21+ finishers. Head over to Betfair to place your bets.
