Grand National Live Stream: Watch 2021 Aintree race for FREE with Paddy Power

Paddy's pulling out all the stops for this year's Grand National.

We’ve had to wait two years but it’s finally time for another spin over the iconic Aintree fences. That’s right, it’s Grand National time and you can live stream the whole race for FREE with Paddy Power.

You’ll know that the Grand National is the greatest steeplechase in the world – but it’s also one of the remaining big prize pots of the 2020/21 National Hunt season in Great Britain.

The 40 runners and riders are due to go to post at 5.15pm for the 4m 2f 74yds slog around Aintree Racecourse. You can check out the latest odds by visiting our Grand National tab – and we’re paying a whopping SIX places!

You won’t want to miss the race and this is how you can watch for FREE thanks to Uncle Paddy.


We’ve actually been showing racing from both sides of the Irish Sea completely free and live (well, on a one-second delay) online and through the app since last June. You’ve been missing out if this is brand new information.

To watch, just download the app and sign up or log in. You don’t even have to place a bet on a race to watch it. It’s even easier online where you simply head to, log in, find the race and you’re away.

We’ve got you covered with stats and pace analysis to go with the action, while there is also a Predictor and Paddock View option lined up to provide the best possible racing experience in your own home.

There are previews and tips for the Grand National on PP News, as well as a stack of features and exclusive columns from leading names in the industry such as Ruby Walsh and Mick Fitzgerald.

Having to bet to watch a race?


Cloth Cap emerged as the favourite for the Grand National after 2018 and 2019 winner Tiger Roll withdrew from the 2021 renewal as a result of connections disagreeing with the 11st 9lb handicap.

The Jonjo O’Neill-trained nine-year-old’s comprehensive win in the Premier Chase at Kelso in early March further solidified his position at the head of the market. Cloth Cap is rated a full stone ahead of the handicapper after the 7½l victory and is set to carry 10st 5lb in the big race.

Burrows Saint, Any Second Now and Minella Times are all prominent in the betting. The rest of the field are between 12/1 to 125/1.
