GRAND NATIONAL

Acceptances are now open for the 2021 Grand National tipping comp. This horse race, one of the premier steeplechases in the world, is run over 4 miles 3½ furlongs (7141m), which is 100m short of 4½ miles, with a starting field of 40 horses.

Currently, there are still 90 horses in the field (from an original field of 105 entries back in January). The final field will be known at 8:00am Thu 10th April, plus four reserves to allow for late scratchings. The starting field of 40 runners will be announced at 10:am on Friday 9th April. 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 2018 (the last time this tipping comp was run) and the years 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 10th April 2021 at 5:15pm UK time (10:15am FT time), early am 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 if you'd like to enter.

      • After the 2020 event was cancelled by Covid, the 173rd running of the classic English steeplechase took place yesterday, with a full field of 40 horses. There was no live audience, however.
      • In a bit of history, Racheal Blackmore was the first female winner of the event, on board Minella Times, starting at the rather skinny odds of 9/1.
      • We had nine starters for our tipping comp, and had a four-way dead heat for second. Countbacks galore!
      • The winner, who earned over 750,000 quid is... srini701. He picked 4 of the first five over the line.
      • After counbacks, the next four, in order, are N-Bomb, Howie72, Fifiona, and gtho4. .
      • Llynfi was the only one to tip Balko del Flos, who finished second at 50/1.

      • Congratulations to the three medallists .. and hopefully will see ya'all in for the Kentucky Derby in three weeks time.
