0

The Randox Health Grand National will be screened on the giant Liverpool Media Wall opposite Lime Street Station this weekend.

Live countdown timers will be activated on the day ahead of ITV’s live broadcast of the big race at 5.15pm.

The Liverpool Media Wall, operated by Ocean, is the biggest full motion digital advertising screen in Europe.

The steeplechase will also been shown on a second Ocean-managed screen at the entrance to the Westfield London shopping centre.

Head of marketing and media at ITV Ed Ross said: “The Randox Health Grand National is truly the race that moves the nation. We are hugely excited to be screening this in such a unique way to as many people as possible.”

Tiger Roll wins the National

The National is unique in that it is hard to predict the winner meaning there have been a few surprises over the years.

Anibale and Total Recall are the joint favourites to win the 2018 Grand National .

Both horses are best priced 11/1 ahead of the world’s greatest steeplechase on Saturday.

Betting markets haven’t changed too much since the 105 initial entries were revealed in January – but as interest grows as the 40 horses were revealed, odds have begin to change.
