Virtual Grand National 2020: Where and when can I watch it?

Today should have marked one of the biggest dates in the horse racing calendar with the Grand National at Aintree.

Despite the cancellation of the event due to the Coronavirus a virtual televised race will take place Saturday 4th April.

The coverage will be broadcast on ITV from 17:00 BST with the race set to start at 17.15pm.

Odds

Bookmakers have been given set odds and the winnings will be donated to NHS Charities Together. NHS Charities Together is the umbrella organisation which represents over 140 NHS Charities. Collectively, the charities contribute £1 million a day supporting the work of the NHS.

A maximum bet of £10 win per horse, or £10 each way, will be allowed. The initiative has been backed by the Betting and Gaming council.

Runners and Riders

40 horses will partake in the race with the horses who were most likely to run taking part. CGI technology and special algorithms will be used to forecast the results.

Favourite Tiger Roll was on-course for a third consecutive Grand National, aiming to follow in the footsteps of Red Rum who remains the only horse to win the illustrious race three times.
