2025 Scottish Grand National Trends

The Grand National bandwagon continues this weekend as we get set for the Coral-sponsored SCOTTISH GRAND NATIONAL – this year will now be run on Saturday 19th April 2025, at Ayr racecourse.

As, we all know the main National is the one at Aintree, but the Scottish version is up there as a close second with the Irish and Welsh renewals so it’s still a fascinating race.

Run over 4m, which is around 2 furlongs shorter than last week's Aintree version, but with 27 fences to jump too then it goes without saying stamina will still very much be the order of the day.

Trainer Willie Mullins won the race for the first time with the 6 year-old MacDermott - as the Irish handler added the race to the Aintree Grand National he won a week earlier with I Am Maximus.

There will be a maximum of 30 runners too so – just like all the other Nationals a certain amount of luck is also required for runners and riders to avoid any fallers or loose horses.

However, being first run in 1858 and having a long history then there are also plenty of trends for punters to take in and hopefully use to find the best profiles of past winners.

For example…………………Did you know that ALL of the last 21 winners ran within the last 57 days, while 17 of the last 21 winners were aged 8 or older?
