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.
Run on Saturday 6th April 2019, the build-up to the Merseyside marathon always starts months before the big day. However, not all horses can run so from now until just a few days before the race we’ll see many horses drop out. For safety reasons, the Grand National is always capped at 40 horses so between now and April 6th we are going to see 65 horses fall by the wayside. There are various declaration stages during February, March and April which also help whittle done the entries to the 40 Grand National Runners.
Now in its 172nd running, the weights for the Grand National will be released in February 2019 by the British Horseracing Authority’s head of handicapping.
Once each horse has been allocated a weight to carry this will give us a better idea which entries will be the actual Grand National Runners for 2019 – in the world’s richest and greatest steeplechase. Plus, the 2019 Grand National betting market normally has a shake-up after these weights are announced.
