The Grand National 2021 will take place at Aintree racecourse on Saturday 10th April 2021. Last years’ race was cancelled which makes this race even more special, even though spectators will not be present. 

There will be up to 40 runners competing to win the national, but in their way will be 30 difficult fences and 4 miles 514 yards of turf! 

Choosing a bookmaker for the Grand National 

Every UK bookie will be wanting to take your bet and we would highly recommend from personal experience using bet365.

Grand National Welcome Bonuses 

Most bookmakers will suspend their welcome bonus offers for the Grand National. You may think why they would suspend the free bets especially if this is the one day that a huge proportion of the UK population will want to sign up and place a bet? Well, this is the exact reason why! Bookies know that incentives are not needed, and they will be able to get away with not providing a welcome bonus. To get around this we would advise to sign up a few days before the race! 

How To Place a Bet On The Grand National 

To place a bet on the Grand National, you will need to log into your betting account, or sign up for a new one. We have put a handy betting account guide which provides the best information how to do this. 

Once you are logged in you can select the horse racing section, however the Grand National section will be easy to find. 

Check the odds that are being offered and choose to place an each way or single bet. 

Is it best to place a Win Or Each-Way bet on the Grand National? 

Placing an Each Way bet is recommended for the Grand National as there are 40 runners and you are more likely to get a return from an each way bet. 

An Each Way bet consists of two bets on one selection, one bet for the horse to win and a bet for the horse to place in a certain amount of places. You will get a ¼ or 1/5 of the odds for the place bet. Check the bookies terms before placing! We have a types of bet guide to explain this in more detail.

Difference between Fixed Price and Starting Price on the Grand National? 

Whilst placing your bet on the Grand National at the online bookmaker, you will have the option to select the SP (Starting Price) or the fixed odds ie 15/1. We recommend selecting the fixed odds if the bookie has Best Odds Guaranteed, which the bookmakers we have on this site do have. 

Grand National Ante-Post or othe day betting 

The Ante-post market will be open to bet on before the day of the race and it is always worth checking to see if the bookmaker does NRNB (Non Runner No Bet). You need this feature to ensure that if your horse does not race you get your stake back. 

On the day betting will be the most popular for the Grand National and be prepared for odds to fluctuate especially an hour before the race starts. 

Picking the Grand National Winner 

There are many ways to pick a horse to bet on for the Grand National, but picking the winner is not an exact science. Many bettors will place a bet on the favourite, however just because the horse has the shortest price does not mean it will win. You can study the form or even just pick a name that you like, the Grand National has 40 runners and is extremely difficult to predict.  

Is the Grand National Festival on TV? 

The Grand National will be televised by ITV on Saturday April 10 2021, ITV will also show the majority of the Festival on TV. Other ways to watch the Grand National will be to use the ITV Hub, Racing TV or you can watch online using the bookmakers streaming service. Most bookmakers only need you to deposit to use this service, however some will require you to place a bet. Read the terms before signing up if you just want to use their live streaming service.
