Pick Your Grand National Winner for 2017
Millions of people across the world, will be glued to the 2017 Grand National on Saturday 8 April. Not only is it one of the most watched and richest horse races in the world, but it is also one of the most wagered sporting events in the calendar. Even those who don't really like horse racing are liable to have a flutter on the Grand National.
What makes it such a special race? For a start, it is one of the most unpredictable horse races out there. The course is considered to be one of the toughest in the world. Consisting of two circuits of the Aintree track, runners and riders must negotiate 30 fences. Some of these are famous in their own right for their difficulty, such as The Chair and Beecher's Brook. All of which means that as much as half the starting field may not finish the race. And so, the Grand National is the perfect race for unpredictability and perhaps a lucrative upset.
So who will write their name into Grand National folklore this year? Which horse and jockey will etch their name into sporting history? Last year, 33/1 shot Rule The World lived up to his name, finishing at the head of the 39-horse field, giving jockey David Mullins and owner Mouse Morris a day they will never forget.
