Grand National: How to pick your winner

One of the biggest highlights of the sporting calendar every year, the Grand National doesn't just transcend racing, but sport itself.

In 1928, Tipperary Tim was the only finisher, almost winning the race by default. Foinavon capitalised on a loose horse wiping out half the field to win in 1967. Red Rum of course dominated the 1970s with three wins. 

Bob Champion created one of Britain's greatest sporting moments, winning aboard Aldaniti while battling cancer in 1981. In 2009, Mon Mome produced a huge shock, winning at a price of 100/1.

In its nearly 200-year history, the Grand National has always offered the chance to carve your name into sporting immortality.

It's also the most popular betting event of the year. Do you follow the form or stick a pin in the race card? Do you look for a name or look for a jockey?

We spoke to racing experts (and some non-experts...) about what the Grand National means, and how you go about picking a winner.
