The 2012 Aintree grand national kicks off next weekend (14th April). Dubbed "the people's race" and also "a bit of a crapshoot" due to the 40 strong field of runners - it's certainly going to be a spectacular.
Last year's winner Ballabriggs has the opportunity to match legendary Red Rum's record of winning two consecutive Grand Nationals in a row!
