When is Grand National 2022: Date, time and more


he world’s most famous horse race returns this weekend, with the 174th running of the Grand National at Aintree.

Twelve months ago, Rachael Blackmore made history by becoming the first female jockey to win the race, teaming up with Henry De Bromhead trained Minella Times to glory.

That race was held in front of empty stands, with fans not yet allowed to return to sporting events post-pandemic, while the 2020 renewal was canceled outright amid the first lockdown.

As a result, it will be the first National staged in front of spectators since Tiger Roll’s second consecutive victory that brought the house down in 2019.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 2022 Grand National…
