WHAT ARE THE RANDOX GRAND NATIONAL WEIGHTS?

 

The Randox Grand National is a handicap race, which means horses carry differing weights according to how well they have performed previously, to make for a more even race. The Randox Grand National weights determine each horse’s handicap during the race, with the highest weight of 11 stone 10 allocated to the best-performing horses. All horses must carry at least 10 stone, the required minimum to run in the Randox Grand National. The weights are announced in February each year, and set in stone regardless of what each horse does between the weights announcement and the race.

WHEN WILL THE RANDOX GRAND NATIONAL RUNNERS BE ANNOUNCED?

 

The final 40 Randox Grand National runners aren’t confirmed until the Thursday of the Randox Grand National Festival, at 10am. The top 40 runners in the weights which haven't been withdrawn are confirmed, as well as 4 reserves in case there are any late withdrawn runners. 


On Friday at 10am, the final 40 Randox Grand National runners are officially declared. If there are any withdrawals after this point the reserves are no longer able to replace non runners, meaning less than 40 horses will run. If you’re taking part in a Grand National sweepstake, now is the time to pick your horses!

WHEN IS THE RANDOX GRAND NATIONAL?

 

 

The Randox Grand National 2021 will take place on Saturday 10th April - the highlight race of the three-day Grand National Festival which runs from Thursday 8th April.

 

 

 

WHAT TIME IS THE GRAND NATIONAL?

 

 

The Randox Grand National Steeple Chase takes place at 5.15pm on Saturday 10 April. In the past the race used to take place earlier, however, it was moved to a more suitable time that wouldn’t clash with other sporting events taking place on the same day.

 

WHERE CAN I WATCH THE RANDOX GRAND NATIONAL?

 

Viewers can tune in to watch the Randox Grand National on ITV on their televisions or online through ITV’s streaming service, as well as on Racing TV. Find out more with our guide on where to watch the Grand National.

 

WHO WON THE RANDOX GRAND NATIONAL IN 2020?

 

The Randox Grand National 2020 was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. However a televised Virtual Grand National took place instead, using CGI technology and advanced algorithms to determine the outcome. The forty runners who would have been most likely to race at Aintree took part in the virtual Grand National, which was won by Potters Corner.
