The Grand National gets under way at 4.15pm at Aintree on Saturday.

Tidal Bay is the favourite with the bookies, with odds of 14-1 on Friday morning.

However, how about a horse with a bit of Lincolnshire pedigree?

The chief executive of Market Rasen race course, Pip Kirkby has highlighted three horses which have raced at the course in their careers.
