Grand National 2022: All the latest updates from Aintree as the Randox Grand National returns

Grand National day has arrived and the sun is shining down on Aintree Racecourse as 50,000 race-goers get set to descend on the third day of the festival.

It’s the big one, the Grand National Day on Saturday, and there’ll be a sell-out crowd to make sure it’s incredible.

If you’re coming, the gates open a bit earlier than on previous days – at 10am – so get here early and give yourself loads of time to make the most of the atmosphere at the world’s greatest racing event.

Don’t forget, Merseyrail has increased the train service between the city centre and Aintree, so they’re now running every 10 minutes and it’s definitely the least-hassle way to get to and from the course. 

The first race is at 1.45pm and the last one is 6.20pm, but it’s the National itself at 5.15pm which will have millions of people watching from all around the globe.

Will Rachael Blackmore, who made history as the first woman to ride to victory last year, be able to do the double on Minella Times?

The punters are loving her, and they’re really getting their money behind the grey Snow Leopardess who’s got a classic Aintree fairytale backstory, but as anyone who’s bet on the race in the past knows, the National is always anyone’s race.

And honestly, when you’re heading back into town with your flip-flops on after an amazing day, it feels like everyone – including our city – has been a massive winner.

Scroll down this live feed throughout the day for regular updates and to watch our coverage of the Randox Grand National 2022
