Grand National Map 2015

Racing gets under way at Aintree today, as anticipation builds for what should prove to be another thrilling and exciting Grand National on Saturday. As one of the most prestigious events on the racing calendar the Grand National is expected to draw a huge crowd. It will see an abundance of money change hands as even those averse to betting will have a flutter on what is often the most unpredictable race of the year.

Great weather is expected this weekend and there is already a hint of history in the air. 19-time Champion Jockey, AP McCoy, is riding the national for the final time and could mark his retirement should he end the race as a winner. Having won the race on only one occasion, would this be the fitting finale to end a glorious career?

To help you determine the heads from the tails, we have produced a guide to this year's Grand National course as well as the riders expected to line up at the start on Saturday. Information is included on each fence helping you to gain a better idea of what jockey and riders will go through during the race. Additionally, all the riders are also featured with their predicted odds displayed as well as information on their current form and how they fared last year. Picking a Grand National winner can be a bit of a minefield but hopefully our map will help steer you to success. Good luck!
