When is the Grand National 2024? Aintree date, start time, runners and betting

The race that stops the nation.

Corach Rambler wins the Grand National


Aintree is set to stage the Grand National in 2024 with a few modifications to the world’s biggest Jumps race.

A number of changes have been agreed including the field size being reduced from 40 runners to 34, a standing start with a shorter run to the first fence, fence 11 and 27 being reduced in size and the race starting earlier than 5:15pm.

Dual Ultima hero Corach Rambler is the most recent winner of the Grand National after fending off a late charge from fellow Cheltenham Festival winner Vanillier in 2023.

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.
