Grand National 2024: Runners, Riders & Non-Runners

We keep you up to date with all of the confirmed runners and riders for the 2024 Grand National at Aintree.

The lead up to the Grand National, which takes place on Saturday 13th April 2024, is always intriguing as the lineup of participants begins to take shape.

Last year's winner Corach Rambler will once again be in the running as he takes on the likes of Vanillier, Noble Yeats and Delta Work.

Grand National

Grand National 2024 Runners & Riders

1. Noble Yeats

Trainer: Emmet Mullins

Jockey: Harry Cobden

2022’s 50/1 shock winner has enjoyed mixed results since, but he has won races at Cheltenham and back at Aintree and finished fourth in last year’s contest. The booking of Harry Cobden is eye-catching and he has a chance.

2. Nassalam

Trainer: Gary Moore

Jockey: Caoilin Quinn

Pulled up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup but had looked progressive previously and his 34-length victory over 3m 6½f in the Welsh Grand National on heavy ground gives him a real chance.

3. Coko Beach

Trainer: Gordon Elliott

Jockey: Jordan Gainford

Second on this course in December gives him a chance but he was pulled up in last year’s National and will need to prove his stamina.

4. Capodanno

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Keith Donoghue

Pulled up last year but represents a top yard and has never finished outside the top three on heavy ground, so any rain would be a boost to his chances.

5. I Am Maximus

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Paul Townend

2023’s Irish Grand National winner has won two of his four races since and arrives in good form, having won 3m 1½f Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse by 14 lengths in February.

6. Minella Indo

Trainer: Henry De Bromhead

Jockey: Rachael Blackmore

The 2021 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner is probably past his best now as an 11-year-old, but he did pick up a Punchestown win in October and would appreciate any rain.

7. Corach Rambler

Trainer: Lucinda Russell

Jockey: Derek Fox

Justified favouritism last year when winning by 2 ¼ lengths and although he has failed to win since, his brave effort in the Cheltenham Gold Cup last month was enough to show that the reigning champion deserves to head the market once again.

8. Janidil

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Jody McGarvey

An 11th in a field of 12 in the Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham brought his record in races over 3m or more to one third place from five runs. Would be a shock place, let alone a winner.

9. Stattler

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Patrick Mullins

No win since 2022 tempers enthusiasm, although that success did come over 3m 6f, meaning he has more stamina claims than most in this field. 

10. Mahler Mission

Trainer: John C McConnell

Jockey: Ben Harvey

Second in the Newbury Gold Cup - a race which often throws up National winners - despite losing both front shoes was an eye-catching run and it would be no surprise to see him make the frame. 

11. Delta Work

Trainer: Gordon Elliott

Jockey: Jack Kennedy

Was going okay last year before unseating Keith Donoghue and had finished third the year prior, so may save his best for Aintree and could give another bold run.

12. Foxy Jacks

Trainer: Michael Morris

Jockey: Gavin Brouder

A regular fixture in big, staying chases and was impressive when winning on Cheltenham’s cross country course in November. Soft ground would be a concern.

13. Galvin

Trainer: Gordon Elliott

Jockey: Sam Ewing

Once progressive but has struggled for wins for a while now. Second in the Cross Country Chase at the Festival last year gives some slight hope but this season has started poorly.

14. Farouk D'alene

Trainer: Gordon Eliott

Jockey: Donagh Meyler

Nothing in his form to suggest he is ready to land a race of this magnitude. However a record of two wins and two seconds from four races on heavy suggests he may be good for a place at big odds should the rain arrive.

15. Eldorado Allen

Trainer: Joe Tizzard

Jockey: Brendan Powell

Wind surgery failed to do the trick when last seen as he pulled up in the Ultima, meaning his losing run is now at 13 races, dating back to February 2022. No real chance.

16. Ain't That A Shame

Trainer: Henry De Bromhead

Jockey: Mr David Maxwell

Win on heavy ground in the Thyestes Chase at Gowran Park in January gives him a sniff and any rain could help him build on last year’s 17th in this contest at likely big odds.

17. Vanillier

Trainer: Gavin Cromwell

Jockey: Sean Flanagan

Second last year and not readily discounted, although form figures of 5502 this season do not represent a perfect preparation and it is difficult to predict which Vanillier we will see.

18. Mr Incredible

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Brian Hayes

Ran a brilliant race when second in the Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter last month and, representing a top yard, would not be a shock feature among the places, with a win maybe not beyond the realm of possibility either.

20. Latenightpass

Trainer: Tom Ellis

Jockey: Miss Gina Andrews

Four wins and two seconds from eight runs over fences make him an interesting outsider. One of those victories came on Cheltenham’s cross country course in December and he could run a big race on his stable debut.

21. Minella Crooner

Trainer: Gordon Elliott

Jockey: Kevin Sexton

Both runs over 3m 5f or more have resulted in him being pulled up, suggesting he is a no-hoper over this testing 4m 2½f gauntlet.  

22. Adamantly Chosen

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Saan O'Keeffe

A 14-length win at Down Royal last month gives him a chance and he finished comfortably in that 3m 2f victory, suggesting he may have more in reserve and could improve over this longer trip.

23. Mac Tottie

Trainer: Peter Bowen

Jockey: James Bowen

Loves Aintree, with three of his four runs coming at the Liverpool course, but there are real concerns over his stamina following back-to-back sevenths in races over 3m or more last month. 

24. Chemical Energy

Trainer: Gordon Elliott

Jockey: Danny Gilligan

Has had the winter off after finishing sixth in the Kerry National in September and given he has won fresh before, he could be set for a strong effort at big odds.

25. Limerick Lace

Trainer: Gavin Cromwell

Jockey: Mark Walsh

Excellent win in a Mares’ Chase at the Festival gives her a chance, as does a second to Coko Beach over 3m at Navan in November, but will need further improvement to become the first mare to win the National since Nickel Coin in 1951.

26. Meetingofthewaters

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Danny Mullins

Kept on strongly to finish third in the Ultima last month and that effort, along with big-field wins at Cork and Leopardstown over the winter, suggests he may be up to the Aintree challenge.

27. The Goffer

Jockey: Gordon Elliott

Trainer: Sean Bowen

Fourth in last year’s Gold Cup at Sandown gives him a chance on stamina, but he has struggled for wins recently and any rain would decrease his likelihood of a victory.

28. Roi Mage

Trainer: Patrick Griffin

Jockey: James Reveley

Produced a brilliant effort to finish seventh last year and recently won a 3m 3f contest in France. While a win may be beyond him, he could sneak into the extended places again.

29. Glengouly

Trainer: Willie Mullins

Jockey: Michael O'Sullivan

All wins have come over less than 2m 5f so real stamina concerns, although plenty of rain would help his slim chances.

30. Galia Des Liteaux

Trainer: Dan Skelton

Jockey: Harry Skelton

Stayed on strongly for second at Warwick in January, suggesting this marathon trip could be right up her street. Has won twice on heavy so would handle any difficult conditions and could be one for an each-way punt. 

31. Panda Boy

Trainer: Martin Brassil

Jockey: JJ Slevin

Fifth in last year’s Irish National was respectable, but he found no extra over 3m 5f that day and this contest looks unlikely to provide Panda Boy with a first win since 2022.

32. Eklat De Rire

Trainer: Henry De Bromhead

Jockey: Darragh O'Keeffe

Was going well for a long way before being pulled up in the Ultima last month, suggesting this ultimate test of stamina may be beyond him.

34. Kitty's Light

Trainer: Christian Williams

Jockey: Jack Tudor

Completed a sensational Eider Chase-Scottish National-bet365 Gold Cup treble last year but has rarely been seen over fences since, mainly as a way of getting him into this race. Comes alive in spring but has struggled on soft ground in the past and could do with a dry week.


Chambard and Run Wild Fred have been declared non-runners in the 2024 Grand National.
