The Grand National 2024 has taken place, and it was won by the horse named 'I Am Maximus'. The event took place at 4pm at Aintree in Merseyside today, with the winner crowned after 30 fences of racing.

Those in attendance, and watching live on ITV, saw I Am Maximus win, coming in ahead of Delta Work in second, who was followed by Minella Endo in third. Completing the rest of the top six was Galvin in fourth, Kitty's Light in fifth and Ain't That a Shame in sixth place.

Last year's winner, Corach Rambler, was due to to be popular, as he bid to emulate Tiger Roll, who won the Grand National in 2018 and 2019, doing the double in the process. However, he unseated his rider at the first fence - causing chaos for the rest of the pack and eliminating a huge favourite.

I am Maximus is trained by Willie Mullins, who saddled Hedgehunter to win in 2005, and has now landed the £500,000 first prize, giving him a great chance in the UK trainers' championship, which is based on prize money won. Having already been successful in an Irish National, I Am Maximus is all about stamina and looked well-handicapped on his form this year, with jockey Paul Townend able to find a perfect rhythm today.

Ahead of the today's race, a spokesperson for William Hill, Lee Phelps, said that two thoroughbreds at the top of the market were proving popular, as he explained: "Whether it’s a result of Mark Walsh choosing her or Gavin Cromwell’s form, punters are really getting stuck into Limerick Lace in the Grand National. She’s 9-1 from 10-1 as the money continues to pour in and there’s now a realistic chance of her going off favourite.

"I Am Maximus is another who’s been well-backed in recent days and he’s the current 7-1 favourite, but it’s very hard to know who is going to start favourite with such a good spread of business. At bigger prices, another J P McManus-owned horse in Capodanno has been popular and is now 25-1 from 40-1."
