Grosvenorsport.com ambassador and Cheltenham Festival winning jockey Harry Skelton reflects on his return to racing following his stag do, and looks ahead to his rides tomorrow at Uttoxeter as well as discussing his early thoughts on next week’s Aintree Grand National meeting.
The greatest horse race in the UK, the 2019 Grand National, is drawing ever closer and the anticipation is building ahead of the Aintree showpiece.
The Grand National takes place on the final day of the three-day Grand National Festival at the Liverpool-based racecourse, which runs from Thursday 4th April through to Saturday 6th April.
The feature race is often packed with drama, none more so than last year when Tiger Roll just hung on for the win in a photo finish from Pleasant Company in one of the closest Nationals since its inception in 1839.
How long does the Grand National race last? It generally takes around 10 minutes, with the quickest time recorded coming in 1990 with Mr Frisk’s win, which came in a time of eight minutes 48 seconds while the longest it has ever taken is 14 minutes 53 seconds in Lottery’s win in 1839.
The final 2019 Grand National line up will be confirmed on Thursday 4th April ahead of the big event two days later where 30 fences and four mile and 514 yards stand between the 40 horses and joining the list of National winners, but who will come out on top? Here’s some of the top contenders for the 2019 Grand National.
