The Grand National is the biggest horse race in the world, the culmination of three days of superb action at Aintree which runs from Thursday 11th to Saturday 13th of April in 2024. We will have runner by runner previews and tips for all twenty-one races at the meeting as well as all the news, trends and tips you need to make the most of the three days.

Day one sees the ‘Gold Cup’ of the meeting in the Aintree Bowl as well as the Aintree Hurdle, a Grade 1 over two and a half miles and a race that even the packed schedule of the Cheltenham Festival is missing. A unique test of speed and stamina round this flat track, it’s the final one of four Grade 1’s on the card as well as the first look at the big fences in the Foxhunters.

Friday is ‘Ladies Day’, also known as Fabulous Friday, and features four Grade 1 contests on the card including the highlight, namely the Melling Chase. With a distance of two and a half miles, it’s the Aintree equivalent of the Ryanair at Cheltenham, with a number of those who contested the Festival expected to make the trip to Liverpool.

The final day of the meeting is Grand National day, a race that attracts those once a year punters, drawn by the history and prestige of one of the most famous races in the world. It’s a fiercely competitive contest, as shown by the fact that only two horses have ever managed to win the race more than once – Red Rum in the 1970s and Tiger Roll in the 2010s.

It’s a tough race and the bookmakers seem to have settled on one antepost favourite for this year’s edition; Corach Rambler, who became only the fourth horse in nearly 80 years to win back-to-back Festival Trophy Handicap Chases in March 2023, and also won last year’s Grand National in style. The claims of the defending champion are plain to see after his Gold Cup third.

2024 promises to be another superb renewal of the Grand National, and myracing has you covered with expert Aintree betting tips and free bets. Check back daily for the latest tips for Thursday, Friday and Saturday’s cards.

What types of bets can I do on the 2024 Grand National?

There are two types of main bets for the Grand National. Win-only bets involve your horse winning the race outright. Conversely, if you’d prefer to hedge your bets, you can opt for an each-way bet. This is effectively two bets – one for your horse to win and the other for your horse to place, which means they can finish 1nd, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and sometimes 5th and your bet will still come in.

For those who like low-risk, high reward type bets, many people like to bet on exotic markets. The most popular type of exotics are the Exacta, which requires bettors to select the horses that will come first and second, and the Trifecta which means correctly predicting the first, second and third horse (in that order).

Tote are undoubtedly the best bookmaker to offers these bet types with a large range similar bets and combinations, meaning the subsequent rewards can be substantial for small stakes.
