Time to put the forms book (and, say, the pins) – 2019 Grand National is almost here! 40 runners and riders hope to be on their way to victory in the world's most famous steeplchase, trying on Aintree Racecourse with a £ 1,000,000 wallet at stake. And we can tell you how you can watch a 2019 Grand National live stream from all over the world.
All eyes are on Tiger Roll, the winner of last year, who is again one of the favorites in the Grand National weekend. The Irish Thoroughbred offers the first race horse since the mid & 1970s to win back-to-back Nationals. That's since … you guessed it, Red Rum. But others to watch out for are Rathvinden, Anibale Fly and Vintage Clouds.
More than 600 million people are expected to follow the race in 140 countries, in addition to the 70,000 attendees in Aintree that day. The larger fences of The Grand National provide a more exciting steeplechase than most others all year round – this is where the horses and their jockeys really show their worth. Lookout to The Chair, Valentine ' s Brook, Foinavon, Becher ' s Brook and the Canal Turn as some of the famous challenges in the main event.
This year's race is free on ITV in the UK. However, if you happen to be out of the country this weekend, read on, as we'll show you how to stream the Grand National 2019 from wherever you are in the world.
