How does the Virtual Grand National work?

The Virtual Grand National has raised more than £3m for the NHS since 2017.

It is a computer-simulated version of the Aintree race using outcomes such as age, weight, form and weather conditions.

Using the algorithms, Potters Corner was the victor last year. While in 2018, real-life National winner Tiger Roll correctly claimed the virtual version first too.
