  • NHS staff: Health workers to be honoured at 2021 Grand National

"I just thought having won the Irish Grand National a year ago he'd have plenty going for him".

United Kingdom gambling operators have been repeatedly warned by regulators not to take advantage of the current crisis, so Betting & Gaming Council members have pledged to limit all wagers on the virtual race to £10 per horse per customer per event, or £10 each way per horse.

RACING FANS can look forward to a simulated substitute of the world's most famous steeplechase as 40 runners and riders go to post in the Virtual Grand National, broadcast on ITV1 at 5pm on Saturday, April 4.

This year's National conference was terminated amidst the coronavirus episode, with racing in Britain on hold till a minimum of completion of April. It will be shown live on TV on ITV 1.

'I would have gone for Burrows Saint in the real one, but a better story would be Tiger Roll winning - I'd like Tiger Roll to win the Virtual Grand National.

United Kingdom registers 569 more COVID-19 deaths, toll hits 2,921
Despite the official daily figures it is widely accepted that there are more unconfirmed cases across the region and the country. The United Kingdom death toll from the coronavirus rose by 684 to 3,605 as of 1600 GMT on April 2, up 23% on the previous day.

"For those people that are working in the NHS, doing the work they are at the moment, it must be horrific, what they are seeing at times", McCoy said.

The technology has a pretty good track record; a year ago it predicted Rathvinden (third) would beat Tiger Roll (winner).

Furthermore, bookmakers and the Tote have pledged that all profits from the virtual race will be donated to National Health Service charities to aid the COVID-19 mitigation efforts. Using historical race data and the runners' form and preferences, computer algorithms plot out how the race is likely to run and CGI takes care of the rest. Virtual technology has now ridden to the rescue, and while bookmakers won't directly benefit, they might convince virtual bettors to stick around and see what other fake sports might catch their interest.

Handing profits to such a worthy charity as the NHS while it leads the fight against Covid-19 is the ideal scenario.
