The 169th Grand National gets underway Saturday as Many Clouds looks to enter the history books with back-to-back titles. It would be a feat that has not been achieved since 1974.

With 40 horses in the race, there are plenty of options for betters to choose from. The oddsmakers like Many Clouds to pull off another victory in Aintree, and he enters the race as the favorite. Winning one Grand National is quite the accomplishment with 30 fences to be cleared and the race amounting to over four miles in length.

Proponents of Many Clouds chances of repeating point to his excellent athleticism and the shape of the horse. Another key factor is his rider, Leighton Aspell. Aspell has already won two straight Grand Nationals. He won last year on Many Clouds and in 2014 riding Pineau De Re. He would become the first jockey in history to win the Grand National three straight times.
