When is the Scottish Grand National 2024? Ayr date, start time, runners and betting



The Scottish Grand National is one of the last major staying contests before the curtain comes down on the core Jumps season.

Ayr’s annual big race provides a stiff test over four gruelling miles, with 27 obstacles for the field to clear, and it takes pride of place on the calendar as the most lucrative National Hunt race in Scotland as the winner will earn £112,540 for connections.

Kitty’s Light landed last season’s renewal – the second leg of an incredible spring treble – to hand trainer Christian Williams a second-successive victory in the marathon but a repeat bid is off the cards after the brave little horse finished a fine fifth in the English equivalent at Aintree last weekend.

You can run the rule over our Scottish Grand National odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
