Virtual Grand National Sweepstake kit: Download your free Aintree kit for Saturday's big race

ONE of the best things about the Grand National is having a sweepstake with your mates, and you can do just that with Saturday's Virtual Grand National!

Alright, it may not quite be the same but you can still find out who will get the bragging rights with their winning selection.

All you’ve got to do is save and download the sweepstake kit below, and print it off.

Nominate one of your mates as the captain who will then cut out all the horses and place them in a bag or bowl.

Jump on a video call with everyone and get your team captain to pick out horses from the hat and place them next to your names!

Once you have your horse, make sure you right down who you have!

You could charge £2 per pick and then decide whether you want to give the whole pot to the winner or give something to the runner-up. Good luck!

What is a sweepstake and how to you play?

A sweepstake is the most democratic and fun way of betting on the Grand National.

The names of all 40 horses go into a hat – all you have to do is put some money into the kitty and pull one out.

You could get the favourite or you could get a 100/1 outsider.

That is the beauty of the sweepstake.

No form. No jargon. No tips. Just you, a hat and the luck of the draw.

Every year, you end up hating your colleague in the office or your pal down the pub who picks the winner.

But you never know… this year it could be you.
