The Grand National is the biggest event in the British horse racing calendar, but unfortunately Aintree will not be his usual living self this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Find out how you can stream the Virtual Grand National 2020 live online or on TV and watch the digitized obstacle race from anywhere in the world.
Virtual Grand National 2020 cheat sheet
The Grand National is the most prestigious of the British National Hunt races This year, the virtual race is the only show in town due to the global coronavirus pandemic. Reporting begins at 5 p.m. BST on ITV on Saturday, April 3 . The race starts at 5:1
Last year's Virtual Grand National, Rathvinden triumphed, while the later winner of 2019, Tiger Roll, came second. The CGI race was just right in 2018 when Michael O & # 39; Leary's horse won both races in almost identical circumstances.
And while Tiger Roll doesn't get a chance to seal a historic third This year in a row, Grand National – a feat that even Red Rum didn't do – he's the bookmaker's favorite in the virtual race with 5/1. Every second now is also presented at odds of 10/1, as are Burrows Saint (12/1) and Definitely Red (14/1). Nevertheless, with a 40-strong field of runners, as usual, you can say that the Virtual Grand National is just as unpredictable as the real one.
Those wishing to enjoy their annual flutter and wager on the Virtual Grand National 2020 should know that all winnings from this year's event will be donated to NHS Charities collectively – and therefore bookmakers limit bets to £ 10, either to win or in any direction.
In addition to the main race, ITV coverage – led by Nick Luck and showing Alice Plunkett and Richard Pitman – will also include a special race of champions in which some of the greatest national winners of all time compete. Now let's see how you can see the Virtual Grand National this weekend.

Virtual Grand National Chances of Winning 2020 – Runners and Latest Betting Tips
As previously mentioned, Tiger Roll is the current favorite to win the Virtual Grand National 5/1. A win on a computer screen would hardly be consolation for such a legendary horse – one who was denied his chance for a third consecutive Grand National record win. Times are more than complicated at the moment, but you have to feel for the 10-year-old Irish thoroughbred and his trainer Gordon Elliott.
Any Second Now is also very popular and looks appropriate for a single bet at 10/1.
