As most of us are aware, the Randox Health Grand national offers a staggering £1,000,000 prize fund and those lucky enough to win or finish up to tenth place get a slice of the pie. In 2018, changes to the distribution of the prize fund mean that, while the pot stayed the same at a […]

The Grand National entries for 2022 were released on Tuesday and naturally punters begin in earnest to go through the list of names with a fine-tooth comb, looking for their early ante-post fancies. Venetia Williams trained Mon Mome to win the 2009 renewal of the Grand National and I seriously believe she has the ammunition […]

As we gear up for the 174th renewal of the great race, which will be held at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday, April 9th 2022, it all starts with the entries.

The stunning grey Snow Leopardess (4-1 fav) made history at Aintree at the weekend by becoming the first mare to win the Grade Three Becher Handicap Chase over the Grand National fences, but unless her doting breeder has a major change of heart, it’s highly unlikely we’ll see her line up in the 2022 Grand […]

How great is it to see racing back in full swing? It seems like only yesterday we had to watch the biggest festivals in the UK with no crowds.
