Your guide to all the runners in the John Smith's Grand National at Aintree.
Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins is to sing the national anthem at the 2013 Grand National.
Tickets for next year's Grand National meeting have gone on sale, following a record attendance at the 2012 event earlier this year.
The Grand National has won a £1m sponsorship deal. The three-year deal with Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer will see the world's most famous steeplechase run for a £1 million purse for the first time.
The Grand National is watched by an estimated 600 million people worldwide, as well as more than 150,000 people who visit the site over three days of racing in April.
After his victory at the Grand National Ryan Mania said: "There's no words to describe it, I got a dream ride all the way - I couldn't believe my luck. I couldn't fault the old horse.
"He was second in the Scottish National last year and I thought I should stay loyal to him and thank God I did. I never really had an anxious moment, he made a couple of mistakes, that's all."
Ryan Mania added: "I knew he was capable, even though he hadn't been running well. This is always his time of year, but you couldn't be confident. Two years ago I gave up for six months because the rides had dried up, but Sue and Harvey took me in.
"I realise this will change my life, but I can't go too mad tonight because I am at Hexham tomorrow."
Speaking to Channel 4 Racing, the trainer of runner up Cappa Blue, Evan Williams said:
I can't put into words what the race means to us. It's fantastic to be here with horse that can compete and to be second to legend like Sue and Harvey Smith, if we had to finish second I couldn't think of better people to finish second to.
There was a fair degree of confidence flowing through our veins, we thought everything was right, and I'd gone through things 20 times, and I couldn't find the winner!
Speaking to Channel 4 Racing, winning trainer Sue Smith said:
He's a grand little horse and you can ride him anywhere, anyhow. We knew there was a strong possibility he'd get the trip and the ground is in his favour today and he has no weight on. Man's given him an absolutely wonderful ride - what more can I say!
Yesterday, the winning jockey of today's Grand National Ryan Mania tweeted he was "worth a bet".
