What's on TV and who to watch on Scottish Grand National day

The ITV Racing cameras will be at Ayr and Newbury on Saturday
1 of 1

The TV cameras head north of the border for the Coral Scottish Grand National at Ayr on Saturday and as one of the biggest betting races of the year the race is being broadcast on the main ITV channel, with coverage beginning at 1.30pm.

What time is the big race and who's going to win?

The Scottish National is scheduled for 3.55pm, the last of nine races from Newbury and Ayr on ITV.

A full field of 30 runners is set to run in the race, just ten fewer than ran at Aintree in the Grand National two weekends ago, and one of the favourites is last year's winner Vicente, trained by Paul Nicholls, who was a first-fence faller at Aintree.

Premier Bond, the Kim Muir third, is favourite for trainers' championship leader Nicky Henderson, who could seal the title with a good weekend at Ayr.

Check out our racecard, our guide to the key trends and the trainer quotes in our preview to help you make your big race selection. And watch our Postcast, below, for tips in the big race.

What else is on at Ayr?

Three more races are being broadcast from Ayr, including two Grade 2s. The first, the Jordan Electrics Ltd Future Champion Novices' Chase (2.10), features a rematch between Cloudy Dream and Flying Angel after their recent clash at Aintree, although don't discount the highly-rated Paul Nicholls-trained runner Clan Des Obeaux.

Then there's a highly-competitive QTS Scottish Champion Hurdle (2.45) in which Nicky Henderson has a strong hand, fielding L'Ami Serge and Peace And Co.

And at Newbury?

ITV carries four races from Newbury. The Dubai Duty Free Finest Surprise Stakes (better known as the John Porter, 1.55pm) stars one-time Derby favourite Midterm for Sir Michael Stoute.

The Dubai Duty Free Stakes (aka the Fred Darling, 2.30pm) is headlined by 1,000 Guineas hope Dabyah for John Gosden and Richard Fahey's daughter of Frankel, Queen Kindly.

Exciting Godolphin three-year-old Dream Castle tops the JLT Greeham (3.05pm) market, and Martyn Meade bids for another big-race winner with Chelsea lad in the Be Wiser Spring Cup (3.40pm).

The Scottish National is scheduled for 3.55pm
