2020 was something of a wash-out for sport. While (somehow!) a packed Cheltenham Festival went ahead last year – essentially the last major sporting event for a good few months – we had no such luck with the Grand National. I’m sure we’d all have been happy for it to go ahead without crowds (much as it will this year) but unfortunately the whole event was cancelled as we were forced to endure a ‘Virtual Grand National’ instead. Thankfully the 2021 race is going ahead as planned, and in the above video Betway Horse Racing Ambassador takes the time to detail the tough road female jockeys have had in gaining recognition in the sport and the Grand National itself.
So who’s is in with the best chance of winning the 2021 Grand National? Well, there’s a clear favourite with bookmakers at time of writing – Cloth Cap at 4/1. He’s looking to be one of the shortest priced starters (and potentially winner) in the history of the event. Others in the mix include Minella Times, Any Second Now and Burrows Saint. Tune in on 10th April, you’re in for a treat!
