And They're Off...!
This Saturday sees the world's greatest steeplechase, the Grand National 2017, take place at Aintree Racecourse in Merseyside. We have put together a handy sweepstake kit for you to enjoy the big race even more.
The grand national, which was first run in 1839 is considered a national institution. It is the day when everyone whether or not they know anything about racing eyes up the Grand National. Both runners and riders will be checking the betting odds before having a flutter in the hope their horse will be first past the post.
To help you get involved we have put together this easy-to-use Freightlink Grand National 2017 sweepstake kit.
Just print out the A4-sized kit. We have included the names of the 40 top horses. Please note, this list may change slightly when the final list of Grand National runners is released.
How to run a sweepstake for the Grand National
We suggest charging £3 a ticket, which will give you a prize fund of £120.
Cut out the names on the form, throw them in a bag or box, get your friends or workmates to draw a ticket and fill in the list below with the details of who has picked what.
You could split the winnings as a suggestion by giving the winner £60, second place £35, the third placed £20 and the fourth a fiver.
