Crabbies Grand National Sign

115 Grand National 2014 Entries Announced

115 runners have been entered into the 2014 Crabbies Grand National, 31 more than entered last year. For the first time in the race’s history, the prize fund will top £1,000,000 and it seems that many trainers and connections have decided to thrown their hat into the parade ring for a shot at winning it.

With many trainers announcing who they had intended to enter, over the last few weeks, it isn’t a surprise to see the likes of Long Run, Triolo D’Alene, Tidal Bay and the Coral Welsh National winner, Mountainous, all getting the green light.

Fresh of his epic win in the 2013 Becher Chase, Chance Du Roy, for trainer Philip Hobbs has been given an entry along with other hopefuls Balthazar King, Planet Of Sound and Quinz with Hobbs already confirming to us that “Balthazar King is probably our best chance on Good ground and Chance Du Roy on soft.”
