    Can I make a suggestion? If the winner of the sweepstakes doesnt have a favourite charity, please can they consider donating it to Sarahdol75s Race for life. There are a few of the Elite that have been unfortunate to get this dreadful desease in one form or the other, I feel that it would be good to give something back iykwim.

    I always thought the race was at 3pm? Seems I'm early that's a first.

    What time is the Grand National Race?
    The time of the race itself has moved over the years. Many were used to it being at about 3.15pm, but in order to give more time between some of the other races the main event has moved to 5.15pm

    used to be around 3.45- 3.50pm....


    In recent years the Grand National start times have been put back to 5:15pm and is now shown on ITV1. The later race time is mainly to attract more viewers as when the race was run around 4pm there were generally a lot of other sporting events like football going on at that time too. So now you can watch the Grand National at 5:15pm on Saturday 14th April 2018.

    Not sure why it would be different unless the printer was out of paper? Or that store has somehow over ridden it?

    It's Grand National Day Tomorrow. We have done it in the past, so against my better judgement, as I am carp at organising things, we should try to raise some money for good causes. Usual rules apply. Pick a number, copy the list (highlight, then press Ctrl 'C'), then paste it into a new post (press Ctrl 'V') and I will do my best to keep up with the chaos. I will request someone as my trusty person who will keep a copy list to the horses/corresponding numbers to make sure I don't cheat. The winner gets to choose the cause and we all pay our 2 to that cause. I hope im not breaking any forum rules, as all charity links/donation links will be put onto the relevant forum section. As ever there's no obligation to take part at all, and if it all goes breastage up, blame Bubbs Oh, and if you pick a non runner/donkey/3 legged albatross, tough!

    If there are any new people to the thread, that dont have a clue what is going on. You pick a number, then just before the race you are told which horse that relates too. If your horse wins, choose your favourite charity, and everyone on your list donates 2 to that charity. A good way to get a reasonable amount to your favourite charity. (If list is full, it will be +75)
