The 2024 edition of the Aintree Grand National is set to take place on Saturday, April 13 and the start time has been brought forward to 16:00.

Our team here at Betfred Insights will keep you updated throughout the build-up to the event as we follow the betting markets closely and will report on the entries as the 81 horses who have been entered are whittled down to the newly-reduced maximum of 34, who will contest the race.

We’ll be following the form, the weights, which jockey will ride each horse and of course for those new to betting on the Grand National, we’ll provide a step-by-step guide for how to sign up and place your bets with us at Betfred.

A month out from the big race and we have joint-favourites for who will win the Grand National on our Antepost markets, with Vanillier and I Am Maximum both priced up at 10/1. Those odds will fluctuate over the coming weeks, so keep coming back to our dedicated Grand National section on Betfred Insights for all the news you need.

In addition, we’ll review each horse who is set to run in the Grand National, with an article on each of the 34 confirmed runners the week of the race. Our tipsters will provide their expert thoughts on the chances each entry has and our Horse Racing team will follow the Market Movers to give the punter all the insight and comprehensive coverage that you would expect from Betfred.
