With the world’s biggest racing weekend arriving this week, it’s time to dial in your knowledge of the National’s History. This infographic on the now infamous 1990 Grand National gives you a run down on a record breaking event. The weekend went down in history for two very big reasons, one of which being the record breaking speed set by now journalist Marcus Armytage. British born, he set the world record for the National by completing the race in just 8 minutes and 47.80 seconds, the only sub nine minute win in the races history. Not only that, but he also remains the last amateur jockey to win the race. This infographic was put together by Grand National Betting from Paddy Power. Let’s hope it gives you the knowledge and the foresight to win big this year in the 2018 run!

Best of luck! Let us know how you got on, and if this helped you outsmart your friends!
