Grand National 2014


The 2014 Grand National Festival – Bet now with William Hill

The 2014 Crabbie's Aintree Grand National on the Saturday of the Liverpool meeting is without doubt the most well known horse race in the world.

The stands are sure to be buzzing with excitement and anticipation as the three day Aintree Festival prepares to welcome home a new National hero.

The Grand National fences, Foinavon, Bechers Brook and the Canal Turn to name but three, have created drama that simply can not be matched by any other race.

The three days of the Aintree Festival are some of the best jumps action of the season with 10 Grade 1 races, all building up to the biggest race of the year. With a £1 million prize fund, the Grand National is the richest jumps race in Britain and it is every trainer, owner and jockey's dream to win over the famous fences at Aintree.

Thursday 3rd April 2014 is Grand Opening Day of the Grand National Festival at Aintree. The racing starts with three Grade 1 races, including a Juvenile Hurdle, the Bowl Chase and Aintree Hurdle. The first race of the meeting to be run over the National Fences is the Foxhunter Chase. With Grade 3 handicaps (one over fences, one hurdles) and the Grade 1 Manifesto Novices' Chase to finish Day 1 at Aintree, Grand Opening Day is one of the main highlights of the whole jumps season.

    More of the finest National Hunt horses will run on Ladies Day of the Grand National Festival on Friday 4th April. Once again the action is top class, with the Grade 2 Top Novices' Hurdle and Grade 1 Mildmay Novices' Chase and Melling Chase kicking off the day before another spectacle over the famous fences, this time the Topham Chase. With three more top class races to close the day, including the Sefton Novices' Hurdle, won last year so impressively by At Fishers Cross.

    Grand National Day, on Saturday 5th April, is the most famous raceday in the world. All the build up is for the big race, but there is plenty of quality jumps action before and after the race like no other. The Grade 1 Mersey Novices' Hurdle, Maghull Novices' Chase and Liverpool Hurdle precede the Grand National and are sure to be some of the most keenly contested races of the whole meeting.

    The Crabbie's Grand National itself is off at 4:15 on Saturday and will be undoubtedly the most spectacular race of the season, with 40 horses going for glory over the most well known fences in horse racing. Tidal Bay (currently 14/1) would be one of the most popular winners in Grand National history as he closes his career at the ripe old age of 13. Whether he joins the likes of Red Rum, Don't Push It, Papillon and Rough Quest remains to be seen.

    Plus, bet with William Hill and you’ll be able to watch every race live streamed direct from Aintree to your PC or laptop and our William Hill Radio service includes live commentaries, previews, reviews, tips and pointers to keep you up to date with the latest information from our cast of racing experts.
