The greatest show on turf returns for another year as 40 runners and riders prepare to tackle the Grand National at Aintree.

Noble Yeats sprung a 50/1 shock in last year’s renewal to send jockey Sam Waley-Cohen into retirement with a famous victory over the Merseyside track’s iconic spruce fences.

The Grand National is the richest Jumps race on the calendar as it boasts a mega prize pot worth £1,000,000, with winning connections taking home half of that sum.

You can run the rule over our antepost Grand National odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
