It’s almost that time of year again. On April 10th 2021 (after a ‘virtual’ hiatus last year) one of the showpiece events of UK sport, let alone racing, is here. I’m of course referring to the AIntree Grand National.
Above we get to see Katie Walsh of Betway Horse Racing (and renowned former jockey!) give her personal take on the Grand National and how far women and racing has come over recent years.
Many of us I’m sure have our own take and memories related to the Grand National. Steeped in tradition and with worldwide TV viewing figures into the hundreds of millions, it’s a must see event for racing fans and casual watchers alike. It’s a shame that due to unforeseen events (that’s putting it mildly!) and pulling out this year, Tiger Roll was unable to achieve three National wins in a row. That said we do have a very short priced favourite for a change – Cloth Cap and so all eyes will be on whether he has what it takes on the day. Don’t miss it!
