GRAND NATIONAL

Acceptances are now open for the 2018 Grand National tipping comp. This horse race, one of the premier steeplechases in the world, is run over 4 and a bit miles with a starting field of 40 horses plus four reserves.

Currently, there are still 73 horses in the field (from an original field of 105 entries). The final field will be known by 12th April, a few days before the race. A map of the track layout can be found here - course map. Info about the race and the runners can be found here - runners - and an early betting market can be found here - starting prices. Some tidbits about results in prior years - facts & figures.

RULES
  • The rules for this comp are simple, and are the same as last year and the year before.
  • Pick 10 horses in the order you think they'll finish, 1st to 10th.
  • Points: for any horse out of the 10 you've picked, which finishes in the first five places:

    1st : 10 pts
    2nd : 6 pts
    3rd : 3 pts
    4th : 2 pts
    5th : 1 pt

  • The order of your picks will be used as a tiebreaker to separate any dead-heats or ties.
  • If two players have identical picks x10, whoever posts first wins the tie-breaker.
DEADLINE

The race starts on Sat 14th April 2018 at 5:15pm UK time (10:15am FT time), early am in the wee hours
of Sunday in oz and NZ. Tips close on the hour at 5:00pm with a short period of grace of a few minutes.

Get your names down now!

The winner of the Randox Health Grand National 2018 has been crowned at Aintree. Tiger Roll sped past the finishing post of the world-famous steeplechase to take home the trophy. Number 21 Pleasant Company came in close second after making a remarkable comeback from behind number 13 Tiger Roll. Bless The Wings came in third, followed by Anibale Fly in fourth position.

Thousands cheered on the 38 runners and riders of the 5.15pm race. Only 38 horses ran the course after two were declared non-runners this morning, with some dropping out earlier in the festival due to soft ground conditions. Minella Rocco had topped the weights after the final 40 were announced, but had to pull out on Friday morning due to soft ground conditions. This meant that first reserve Thunder And Roses - from the stable of 2016 Grand National winner Mouse Morris - was brought in to replace him. Vicente was also taken out due to the soft ground conditions with reserve Delusionofgrandeur replacing him.

Just before the 1pm cut-off deadline on Ladies Day (Friday, April 13) number 24, Beeves, was declared a non-runner and replaced by the third reserve Robert Walford's Walk In The Mill which was due to be ridden by Sam Waley-Cohen, but had to pull out on Saturday morning after he was found to be lame.

      • The winner is Tiger Roll, who was picked by everyone, bar one!
      • Second-placed Pleasant Company only had two fans, with longshot third place was only picked by wwe84.
      • Fourth place was another popular tip, with 8 of 11 tipsters having it in their stables. Milansbar was fifth, and was tipped by two people.
      • Our winner this year is Fifiona81 who managed to dob 4 of the top 5! Well done!
      • Second place goes to perennial medalist, gtho4, and wwe84 snuck home in third spot.
      • Fourth spot went to srini701.
      • More than half the field (6 of 11), finished on 12 points- 1st and 4th places- and had to be separated by tiebreaker!
      • Whipping in the field is ozzz2002 who is still waiting at the finish line for at least ONE of his horses to cross the line- his 'system' brought him a massive score of ZERO.

      • congratulations to the three medallists .. and the second leg of our Triple Crown is the Kentucky Derby, in a few weeks time.
