Grand National 2020

Yesterday 4.8 million tuned into ITV to watch the Grand National.

Like they do every year on the first Saturday in April.

The difference this year, it was a virtual Grand National due to the lockdown.

It was impressive.

Executive producer Rob McLoughlin said: “We use the latest CGI technology and algorithms and were ready to go ahead as a forerunner to the big race, but now we want to cheer the nation up and ask the computer if history could have been made.”

All profits are being donated to the NHS, the figures havent been released yet but its reported that its been a hit with the punters so hopefully a decent amount of money will have been raised.

Tiger Roll couldn’t make it 3 in succession, not in the virtual world anyway.
