17:40 - Horaces Pearl wins the Bumper

The curtain comes down on the 2024 Grand National Festival as 14/1 shot Horaces Flyer wins the final race of the day.

It's a 1-2 for trainer Fergal O'Brien after Tripoli Flyer finishes second.

17:10 - Final race of the Grand National Festival

The Bumper rounds off three superb days at Aintree and we have a Winnings Boost available!

17:00 - Found A Fifty wins the third Grade 1 of the day

Its another winner for Gordon Elliott as Jack Kennedy guides Found A Fifty home in the penultimate race of the day.

The Maghull Novices' Chase turns out to be one of the Grade 1s of the week as Master Chewy is just pipped on the line following a fantastic tussle.

15:20 - Grand National market movers

Noble Yeats

We're approaching the big one and naturally there have been a few shifts in the market.

Here are some of the horses whose odds have shortened in the last couple of hours...

Mr Incredible 14/1 > 10/1
Noble Yeats 20/1 > 16/1
Capodanno 40/1 > 25/1
Ain't That A Shame 50/1 > 40/1

15:15 - Strong Leader takes the Liverpool Hurdle

A stunning ride from Sean Bowen sees Strong Header take the honours in an ultra-competitive Liverpool Hurdle.

He was narrowly beaten by Inthepocket in the Top Novices' Hurdle last year, but he's first home ahead of Buddy One and Hiddenvalley Lake in a thrilling race.

That was some appetiser ahead of the Grand National, which is up next at 4:00!

14:45 - Flooring Porter heads the Liverpool Hurdle betting

Flooring Porter

The two-time Stayers' Hurdle champion leads the way in the betting for the Grade 1 Liverpool Hurdle at 3:05.

The veteran Sire Du Berlais is a non-runner but the likes of Crambo, Monkfish and Hewick make this an excellent renewal of the race.

Liverpool Hurdle

14:40 - Cruz Control leads from the front

Cruz Control displays excellent stamina levels as he takes the Handicap Chase at Aintree.

The seven-year-old was tipped by up the Racing Post's Keith Melrose this morning!

14:10 - Latest odds for the next race at Aintree

The King of Ryhope and Crebilly are amongst the favourites for the handicap chase coming up next on Merseyside.

The King Of Ryhope - 4/1

14:00 - Grade 1 success for Brighterdaysahead

It's an absolute stroll for Brighterdaysahead in the first Grade 1 race of the day.

Gordon Elliott is on the board for the day as the 6/5 favourite cruises home in the Turners Mersey Novices' Hurdle.

13:40 - £50 in Free Bets up for grabs

13:35 - First of the Grade 1s up next

Ile Atlantique

There are three Grade 1s races taking place today and the first of those is the Turners Mersey Novices' Hurdle, which is the second race of the day.

Brighterdaysahead justifies favouritism after narrowly missing out on victory in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle, but Ile Atlantique, third in the Brown Advisory at Cheltenham, could pose a significant threat.

13:30 - Gwennie May Boy wins the opener

The Skeltons do indeed get off to an ideal start, but its second favourite Gwennie May Boy who is victorious in the opening race on Grand National day.

The 9/2 shot is a comfortable winner ahead of Lord Snootie in second. It's been some season for the six-year-old!

13:05 - Handicap Hurdle odds

West Balboa

The first race today is a handicap race and West Balboa, a winner on Grand National day last year, currently heads the betting.

Will it be the perfect start at Aintree for the Skeltons?

Latest odds:

West Balboa - 5/2
Gwennie May Boy -
Cuthbert Dibble - 7/1
Black Bamboo -

11:50 - Can Corach Rambler win again?

Corach Rambler

It would be quite something if Corach Rambler could follow in the footsteps of Red Rum and Tiger Roll by winning in successive years.

I Am Maximus might be the new favourite but Corach Rambler's third-placed finish in the Gold Cup surely puts him in contention again this afternoon.
