Joining them covering all the action around the whole course will be Rishi Persad, Alice Plunkett, Adele Mulrennan and Matt Chapman. Brian Gleeson will be in the betting ring with Luke Harvey down at the starts. Oli Bell will interact with viewers at home and look at stats in the ‘social stable’ and the three big race commentators will be Richard Hoiles, Mark Johnson and Stewart Machin.
On Saturday, Ruby Walsh will also be alongside Oli Bell for a fence-by-fence review analysing how the action unfolded and how your horse got on.

The Opening Show will be on ITV4 each day and ITV1 on Saturday. Oli Bell will host a preview all the big races and take in the morning action around the course. He will have guests with him each day and a big race line up on Saturday including Sir Anthony McCoy and Ruby Walsh.

Across the week, the award-winning production and technical team will use state-of-the-art equipment with approximately 50 cameras around the course including a tracker following the horses, a wire cam along the home straight and a drone.

The ITV7 team will also run a Grand National Sweepstake competition and every day there will be the hugely popular a free-to-enter ITV7 competition.
