The 175th edition of the Grand National takes place on Saturday afternoon at Aintree and the favourite to win is Scottish-trained.

There are set to be 40 horses which start the race having been whittled down from the 85 published in February. Amongst those not reaching the final stage was 2021 winner Minella Times who has since been retired. The Randox Grand National will be the penultimate across three days of racing at Aintree which started on Thursday.

Arguably the biggest race in the racing calendar will begin at 5.15pm on Saturday, April 15.
