GRAND NATIONAL week is among us as excitement builds for the Aintree showpiece.
And all eyes will be last year’s champion Rachael Blackmore, who powered to victory on 11-1 Minella Times.
Blackmore, 32, followed up the triumph with success in the prestigious Gold Cup on A Plus Tard last month.
The Irish ace became the first female jockey to win the Grand National with her historic victory last year.
Blackmore said after her win: “I don’t feel male or female right now. I don’t even feel human.”
What horse is Rachael Blackmore riding at the Grand National 2022?
It is expected that Rachael Blackmore will again be riding Minella Times at this year’s Grand National.
Though Minella Times is not showing the form from last year going into the Aintree showpiece.
