Grand National Day

A maximum field of 40 goes to post for the one million pound Grand National at Aintree with experts believing it is one of the most open in years.

That goes to post at quarter past 5

There is a couple of grade ones before that, with the Betway Mersey Novices Hurdle at 2.25 and the Novices chase at 3 o’clock.

Here at home, The Group Three Ballysax Stakes is the feature of a seven-race card at Leopardstown where the first is off at 10-to-2.
