When is the Grand National?

The fabulous Grand National is almost upon us! The world’s most famous steeplechase will once again bring fans from around the globe to Aintree Racecourse as three days of outstanding National Hunt Racing hoves into view.

The opening fixture of the event, suitably named Grand Opening Day, commences on Thursday 2nd April. Then follows Ladies Day on Friday 3rd and finally Grand National Day itself on Saturday 5th.

The three-day meeting is renowned for hosting some spectacular racing spectacles, including the Betfred Bowl, the JLT Melling Chase and of course, the treasured Grand National race.

What Time is the Grand National?

The festival’s blue riband event, the Grand National, which takes place on Saturday 5th April, is set to commence in the evening!
