2021 Grand National Tips

April normally sees the biggest race of the year at Aintree racecourse, the Grand National, but sadly the 2020 Grand National was cancelled due to the Coronavirus and for 2021 it's behind closed doors.

For 2020, super computers were fired up to analyse the runners from their previous races and horse form to then battle it out to claim the 2020 Virtual Grand National.

The 2021 Grand National Festival at Aintree takes place from Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th April, with the big race – The Grand National – on Saturday 10th April.
