* Mall Dini has been declared a non runner. Anyone drawing that horse in the sweepstake should now be given 1st reserve Just A Par.
~ Pairofbrowneyes was declared a non runner at the 2 day declaration stage and replaced by Joe Farrell. If you downloaded the sweepstake kit prior to the 2 day stage (while the download box was Amber) you'll need to make the change for whoever drew out Pairofbrowneyes.

To view the Grand National 2019 Sweepstake kit you'll need Adobe Reader. You probably already have it installed on your computer, but in case you haven't, you can download it for free. Get Adobe Reader Here.

Simply print out the Grand National Sweepstake, then cut the horse names into individual pieces of paper, fold them and put them into a hat (or other suitable container).

Charge as much as you like per entry (or as much as people are willing to pay). We suggest somewhere in the region of £1 - £5 per entry.

Get people in the office to pay their entry fee and draw a name from the hat at random. Write down who draws which horse on the sheet provided (it saves a lot of argument later).

Make sure you sell all of the horses. If you have some left after everyone has brought a horse see if anyone wants a second or third horse. If you are aware that someone has a gambling problem, do not try to sell them a ticket. 18+. begambleaware.org.

Obviously you're free to split the winnings how you wish, but make sure all the money is paid out in prizes. We suggest you split the winnings as follows:

1st = 60%, 2nd = 25%, 3rd = 10% and 4th = 5%

We Hope You Enjoy The 2019 Grand National.

Placing A Bet on The National

If you're having an each-way bet look for a bookmakers who's paying out on additional finishing positions

Normally In a handicap race of 16 runners or more, bookmakers will payout each-way bets on the first 4 finishers. However for the Grand National many will be paying out on additional places. Betfair and William Hill will be paying 1/5 odds on the first 6 horses to finish.

bet365 will be paying 1/4 odds on the first 5 to finish. So if your horse finishes in the first 5 you will receive a better return (e.g. if you back a horse at 20/1, you'll get 5/1 at 1/4 odds, but only 4/1 at 1/5 odds, but you'll get nothing if your horse finishes 6th).

With Tiger Roll being a very short price to repeat his victory of last year, you may feel you'd rather bet your fancy just to be placed. If that's the case, you can back place only via the Betfair betting exchange.

Get the best odds on your bets

When placing your bet on the Grand National, make sure the bookmaker you choose offers Best Odds Guaranteed. Take the price on offer and if the SP is greater they'll pay you out at the bigger price. Note that BOG prices will only count for bets placed on the day of the National.
