The Grand National is arguably the biggest race of the racing calendar in the UK and it is expected
that over £250 million will be placed on bets for the race. A maximum of forty horses will be allowed
to compete and the current favourite for the Grand National 2018 is Blaklion, who finished in 4th
place in 2017.
Just over 150,000 people will travel to Aintree over the three days, while around ten million people
will be watching at home. There will also be offices up and down the country looking to have a
sweepstake and we have create a sweepstake kit for you to use in your office. The kits include the
rules, so you understand what you have to do, the race-cards to find out all of the information about
the horses and the betting slips, where you can write down your predictions.
