2015 GRAND NATIONAL RUNNERS

Every year the Aintree Grand National gets bigger and bigger and the quality of horses entered tends to rise primarily due to the fact that the prize money on offer is now so huge that trainers not only see it as as massive earner but as a prestigious badge of honour that goes with being a winner of the worlds most famous steeplechase. It is the one race that every trainer, jockey and owner wants to win and the 2015 Grand National is no different.

Today Grand National Runners tend to be of a much higher quality than at anytime in the race’s history, as we saw this year with the entry of Grade 1 winners, Gold Cup winners and horses with staggeringly high Official Ratings. Yes, some Grand National runners will get scratched along the way, but that only adds to the excitement of who will eventually line-up on the day.

We believe that it’s very important that you are provided with the very latest and best information on all of the Grand National runners entered so that you can make an informed choice about who you back. That’s why we write in-depth profiles on each horse that runs as well as all the latest on their form. If you fancy having a closer look then go to our Horses page where every horse running in 2015 has it’s own page.

Maybe you would prefer just a snippet about each horse, an overview on their form as well as a bit about the trainers and jockeys. If so we’ve devised a very handy guide to give you through a short but concise overall picture of all of this years Grand National Runners all of which can be found at the top of the page.

And for those of you who love to pick your horse based on it’s number, colour of silks, jockey on board or even by the trainer then check out our odds page where we’ve listed all of those features which will make it instantly easy to pick a favourite to have a bet on.

The 2015 National will be as exciting as ever and the anticipation of the race is building rapidly. Every Runner is being watched by thousands, all waiting for some bit of news that will give a clue as to who can really win it this year. Will it be a female jockey for the first time ever in history?? Will it be a first time win for a small yard? Can Richard Johnson finally ride a Grand National winning horse? Can Donald McCain do it again? Will the favourite cross the finishing post first or will we see another 66/1 like Auroras Encore romp home?

Whatever the outcome, it’s undoubtedly going to be another blinder which will have us screaming and cheering at our tv’s in our millions all hoping that our Grand National runner is the first one home, even if we did just put £1 each-way on it!
