What is and When is This Year’s Grand National?
The Grand National is arguably the biggest race of the National Hunt season: an arduous test for both horse and rider over 4 miles, 2 furlongs, 74 yards, which has produced some of the most dramatic finishes in racing history, along with winners that have won the hearts of the nation and gone on to become household names in their own right. The difficulty of the task facing outsiders is reflected in the sometimes generous Grand National odds offered on unfancied horses. However, there are certain entry rules in place that are designed to ensure that horses running in the National at least have a fighting chance of going the distance, including the following:
- Minimum Age – In order to be eligible to enter the Grand National, a horse must be at least 7 years old.
- Experience – Horses that are entered for the National must have competed in at least three officially recognised chases and have finished in the top 4 of a race that was held over a distance of 3 miles or more.
- Handicap Rating – All horses must have a BHA handicap rating of 120 or higher. Horses from Ireland or other countries that do not have a BHA handicap rating are allowed to enter if the handicapper believes their performances in races they have run in would have merited a rating of 120 or more had they taken place in Great Britain.
The 2019 Grand National – the 172nd running of this historic chase – will take place on Saturday, April 6th at 5.15 pm and you can find all the latest offers right here, in the run up to the big event.
Grand National Free Bets
The most popular of the special Grand National offers to be found on bookmakers’ websites in the weeks and days before the race is run are the matched bonus and matched deposit bets mentioned earlier.

Whichever of the Grand National runners you fancy backing, you should be able to use your free bet to enjoy a risk-free punt on the day of the race, assuming that you meet the conditions stipulated by the bookmaker whose offer you wish to take advantage of.

Grand National Betting Odds & Markets
You can find the latest ante-post odds on individual bookmakers’ websites and on the day of the race itself, you can follow the changes in the betting markets as the odds are adjusted to reflect bets made. Bookmakers normally tighten their odds for a contender if they have taken a lot of bets for it to win and may widen the odds for a particular horse that has not attracted any interest from the betting public, especially if they do not fancy it to make a good showing in the race.
