Which horses are running in the 2019 Grand National?
Below you’ll find a list of Grand National Runners leading up to Aintree 2019. Many horses will be entered for the 2019 Aintree Grand National and as we draw ever nearer to the race, which is run on April 6th 2019, the field will whittle down to a maximum of 40 Grand National runners (plus 4 reserves).
In 2018 we saw Gordon Elliott’s powerful Irish yard win the Grand National for the second time after their Tiger Roll held on in a gruelling finish. There is every chance Tiger Roll will be targeted at the race again in 2019 too as he will look to become the first back-to-back Grand National winner since the mighty Red Rum won the race in 1973 and 1974.
To qualify, horses must have run at least three times in chases under the Recognised Racing Authority Rules of Racing up to and including February 10. Horses may be allocated a rating after then, by the handicapper. The decision of the BHA Head of Handicapping shall be final.
