As soon as the Cheltenham Festival is over – this year’s Gold Cup was won by Don Cossack – attention starts to turn towards the Aintree festival. This year, the Grand National is set to take place on 9th April, with some 600 million people expected to watch the race live. The 2016 race could even see history being made, as 2015 champion Many Clouds is heavily fancied to defend his title, with no horse having managed to win the Grand National in consecutive years since the legendary Red Rum in the 1970s.
