Grand National Review
Grand National is the most valuable jump horse race in Europe, with a price money in total of 1 million GBP. First time it was run in 1839 and since then it is held annually at Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool. The course has a distance of 4 miles and 3.5 furlongs ( 7 141 metres ) and the runners have to jump over 30 fences.
Some of these fences have acquired near-legendary status for their severity, particularly Becher`s Brook, The Chair and the Canal Turn. Along with the distance of this race, the Grand National is also known as the “the ultimate test of horse and rider”. The best horse so far at Grand National was Red Rum. He won three times this race : two times consecutively (1973,1974) and then again in 1977. The leading jockey was George Stevens who during his career won the Grand National five times.
In the past ten years most of the winners were over 9 years old. Last year champion was Rule The World. Vieux Lion Rouge, ridden by T Scudamore and trained by D Pipe, is a good form, winning the last 2 races : Betfred Becher Handicap Chase and Betfred Grand National Trial Handicap Chase .This is the main reason he is seen by the bookies the favorite to win this edition of Grand National.
The Grand National is the centerpiece of the three-day meeting at Aintree and in 2017 will be held on 8th April at 17:15 PM.
