Racing is Back

Two great racing events take center stage this weekend.

First it is the Grand National at Aintree. The historic race will again grip millions to the TV and to their betting slips as the maximum 40 horses battle it out to be called the champion over the fences.

Currently the favoruites include 11-1 CAPPA BLEU, ON HIS OWN at 7-1, A P McCoy rides COLBERT STATION at 12-1 and Katie Walsh is on SEABASS at 10-1.

The race notoriously finishes with around 75% of riders out, so as always it is the one who can be there at the last that will take the grand prize.

Elsewhere, Moto GP is back.

Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and the rest of the grid line up in Qatar for the opening round of the championship.

Rossi, back at Yamaha, will be hoping to add to his already incredible statistics in Moto Gp, and put behind him two barren years at Ducatti.

Briton Cal Crutchlow will also look to throw a spanner in the Yamaha teams works as he aims to become the first British champions in this millennium.

The race is live on the BBC with free practice and qualifying also available.
