When is the full list of Grand National Runners announced?.

Grand National Runners likely to form the field are listed above with the final line up being confirmed on Thursday 4th April 2019.

From the list you will also be able to see the colours of all the grand national runners as well as the weights of each of the horses.

There are normally several hundred grand national entries each year, which is then whittled down to the final 40 grand national runners on race day.

A horse will be able to be entered in the grand national if it meets the minimum entry criteria. The race is open to horses aged 7 and older with a handicap of 120 or higher.

All entries must also have finished in the first four in a chase of 3 miles or longer.

The initial entry date for declarations is at the end of January and then there are further stages through to the race day when grand national runners need to be confirmed at declaration stages which are sometimes called forfeit stages.

At each stage, a runner’s connections may need to pay a further entry fee to confirm their grand national runner. Once the final grand national declarations have been made we will have the confirmed grand national runners and riders listed here.

Use our list of grand national horses to pick your bet for the 2019 Grand National. Grand National Non-Runners The last declaration stage takes place at 10 am on the Thursday before the race at which point the top 40 runners in the weights are left in along with four reserves.

These reserves can then become runners if any of the top 40 horses are withdrawn in the 24 hour period through to 10 am on the Friday. If there are no non-runners during this period then the 40 stand their ground and are the final grand national runners.

If horses withdraw and become non-runners after this point then the field will start with less than 40 runners. We will be updating this list of grand national horses regularly in the run-up to the race so that we keep on top of the likely runners during the year and then from the Friday before the race we will confirm the final list of grand national runners.

Information about Horses in The Grand National – We will include the runner’s name, number (from 4th April), age, weight, along with a brief description of the horse’s chances.

No need to join the long queue at the betting shop these days, your grand national horses can be backed quickly and easily with a reputable online bookmaker by clicking on the links on this page.

There are various way to make your selection from the Grand National Runners and we have tried to help you with your Grand National bets by providing content that can assist you if you are not sure which horse you want to bet on.

We have provided a variety of different content to allow you to make your selection based on form and Grand National trends or if you want to follow our experts then we have four selections for you to choose from on our Grand National Tips page.

Grand National Runners and Riders For the first time for the Grand National 2019 we have undertaken detailed analysis to look at the records of Grand National Trainers and Grand National Jockeys.

Our Grand National statistical research will help you if you want to select your Grand National bet by using the trainers and jockeys that have excellent previous records in the race and have supplied Grand National winners or placed horses.

Trainers such as Jonjo O’Neill and Evan Williams have excellent records with their Grand National Runners and both have well-fancied horses in the field for the Grand National 2019.

Alternatively, you might want to focus on the most successful Grand National jockeys such as Barry Geraghty or Daryl Jacob who both have good records in the Grand National Choose a Grand National Runner from the List We also have a number of other fun ways you can select your Grand National bets.

Some like to look down our list of runners and take a lucky dip to pick a horse completely at random. You can select your Grand National runner by picking your horse by the colours that the jockey will wear in the Grand National 2019 or the area of the country they are trained in or even the star sign the horse was born under!

Once you have made your selection for the 2019 Grand National you need to decide what type of Grand National bet you want to place. Do you want to play it safe and back your selection each-way or are you feeling especially confident and want to back your Grand National horse win only? To back your Grand National Runners each-way you need to place two bets; one on the horse to finish first and another that gives you a smaller return for your money if your Grand National horse finishes second, third or fourth.

If you decide you want your Grand National bet to be each-way you just need to make sure you tick the each-way box when you place your bet. Confirmed Runners The maximum grand national field is 40 runners and riders and the full number of horses are likely to start the 2019 Grand National unless there are any late withdrawals.

As well as the 40 Grand National Runners being confirmed on the Thursday before Grand National day, reserves are also listed at this stage which can take the place of any horses which are withdrawn overnight. If the reserves aren’t required to race then the list of 40 runners are confirmed and any later non-runners aren’t replaced.

Please click on the horse’s names listed above for more information on each of the 2018 Grand National Runners. This more detailed information on each of the Grand National Runners will include in-depth form study and analysis as to if the relevant horse is likely to be suited by the unique characteristics of the Grand National fences and course.

Every year a maximum of 40 Grand National Runners line up at the start of the Aintree Grand National and 600 million people worldwide tune in to watch them tackle the 30 notoriously difficult fences in a bid to put themselves into the history books.

But how do those particular runners and riders make it to Grand National day? A horse will be entered into the Grand National if it meets the minimum criteria for qualification and the owner and trainer feel that their horse is capable of handling the race. Not all horses are suited to the long Aintree course or have the necessary jumping ability.

Even if a horse gets entered that doesn’t guarantee a place at the starting line as frequently over 100 get entered but there is a maximum field of just 40 for the race. The race is open to horses aged seven and upwards that have been placed first, second, third or fourth in a chase of three miles or more and who are allotted a rating of at least 120 by the BHA Handicapper.

Bet £10 Get £30 in Free Bets

The entry date for the race is always at the end of January, with the names and numbers announced by the BHA (British Horseracing Authority) the following day. In 2018 there were 105 entries, 110 entries in 2017, 2016 had 126 entries, an increase of 28 on the 98 entered in 2015. The BHA Head Of Handicapping then takes the list of entries and frames the weights.

In other words, he decides which Grand National Runners will carry the heaviest weights and which will carry the least. The handicap system is designed to give every horse a fair chance of winning the race, good horses will carry more weight than those perceived to have less ability. The maximum weight any horse can carry in the Grand National will be 11st 10lbs and the minimum is 10st. Each runner’s weight will be largely determined by their OR (Official Rating) and the higher the rating, the higher the weight.

Although the Grand National is the only race in Britain in which the Handicapper can ignoring the official ratings if he wishes, often to the consternation of owners and trainers.

Horses are then put in descending order from the highest to the lowest weighted and that also determines their race number. The top-weighted horse is number one, the second heaviest-weighted horse is number two and so on.

The weights are then announced, and from then on a series of ‘Declaration Stages’ or ‘Forfeit Stages’ take place. At each of these stages, potential Grand National Runners can be withdrawn from the proceedings by their trainers and as they are removed and the entries get whittled down so even horses that have not initially made the Top 40 may now do so as entries above them are taken out.

In 2018 the top weighted horse was Definitely Red but he was then withdrawn at the first forfeit stage. The very last declaration stage takes place at 10 am on the Thursday immediately before Grand National day. This is the point where the top 40 Grand National Runners will be near completion along with four additional reserves.

The following day, Friday, by 1 pm any non-runners must be declared and be replaced by one of the four reserves. This is also the point where any horses who were previously allocated weights of less than 10st will have their weight increased to meet requirements.

Three Grand National Runners were withdrawn at this stage in 2018 and replaced with reserves. However, on the morning of the National two more were taken out due to the heavy ground. This resulted in 38 declared Grand National Runners who lined up for the 2018 Randox Health Grand National.

With 40 guaranteed Grand National Runners, the Grand National is the hardest race of the year to pick the winner. A grueling stamina test with 4 miles and 2 furlongs to race, with 30 fences to jump and congested turns round two laps of Aintree’s chase track. Red Rum was the only horse in the past 60 years to have won multiple runnings of the race, which goes to show how hard it is to win the race.

Every trainer, jockey, and owner dreams of running or riding in the Grand National, let alone winning it. So how exactly do you pick the winner from the Grand National Runners? Every aspect of racing can have an influence on the winner. Ground conditions, trainer, jockey, horse form all have a part to play for the runners, but even more valuable is luck.

When 40 fully-grown thoroughbreds jump over the same fence, at the same time, bumping and knocking each other in the process, things are bound to go wrong. The claustrophobic nature of the race, unfortunately, sees a number of horses fall and so does your chances of winning.

However, with that being said there is plenty of factors you can account for when attempting to pick the winner. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, stamina is key. Picking a horse who’s form includes longer trips is essential. A 2-mile specialist has a far inferior chance of winning than a 4-mile specialist as their stamina is unlikely to hold out.

Weight can also dictate a horses chances, the more weight a horse carries the harder it will be. In fact, 7 of the last 10 Grand National winners carried 11 stone or less to victory. Opt for youth over experience. 7 of the last 10 Grand National winners were aged 10 or younger, which suggests younger horses have a far better chance of winning. Never judge a horses chance based on its price.

6 of the last 10 Grand National winners were priced 25/1 or bigger. Improve your chances Many punters place multiple Grand National bets in the hope of picking the winner, but that’s cheating, right? Wrong.

Why not split your stake up into multiple smaller bets? After all, you have a bigger chance of winning and the prices of Grand National Runners are big enough to make it worthwhile. Another way of increasing your chances is to bet Each-Way. You are far more likely to pick a horse that finishes in the top 4 than picking the winner.

Horses in the Grand National are often big prices and pay handsomely with a place on an each-way bet. Some bookmaker promotions offer up to 6 places, taking full advantage of this can make the task of finding a winner that bit easier.
