Virtual Grand National 2020 Selections and Odds

Unfortunately, this is not the Grand National that many punters had been hoping for in 2020, and we may be robbed of seeing Tiger Roll make history by winning 3 Grand Nationals in a row – but it is something to get slightly excited about in a world where there is not much going on, on a Saturday evening! 

40 runners and riders will compete at 5:15 on ITV this evening using the latest CGI Technology and if there is anything to take from this it will be that zero horses will be injured in the race and the bookies are donating all profits to the NHS, which is fantastic. 

There is no real way of tipping the Virtual Grand National but this race has many traditions, and below is just some of the ways people may be placing their 2020 Virtual Grand National Bets: 

  • ‘I liked the name’ – many people will be selecting the 2020 Virtual Grand National winner because they liked the name. No. 26 Pleasant Company may be a good shout if you’re happy in isolation; David Mullins’ horse is 28/1 today. Or you may wish to choose Elegant Escape at 20/1! 
  • ‘I will just use my favourite number’ – I’m going to go with horse no. 8 in today’s Virtual Grand National. 8 is the Chinese symbol of wealth, and it’s also my birthday. No.8 Peregrine Run is 66/1 to take it down. 
  • ‘Wow, I love the colour of those jockey silks’ – many people will be betting the Virtual Grand National 2020 by the colour of the jockey’s silks. My favourite colour is green, so Bristol De Mai may be worth a tickle at 20/1.

How will they decide the 2020 Virtual Grand National Winner? 

Steve Rogers, Head of Virtual Sports at Inspired, said: “Information about the horses is fed into the software which helps determine the probability of their potential finishing positions based on form and past performance.” 

The machine has a reasonable record at predicting how the race will turn out – it reckoned Rathvinden would be first and Tiger Roll second last year, those two finished third and first.
