The biggest horse racing event of the year is the Grand National and it is the busiest time for bookies. However, some online bookmakers stop giving out their free bet offer in the days leading up to the Aintree show-piece so it is always important that you open your new betting account and claim your free bets for the Grand National before the offer expires.

One of the best offers that is perfect for people who are new to betting on horse racing is the Coral bet £5 get £20 in free bets because you get your £20 credited as four free £5 bets. This means you could place a £5 bet on four different horses who are running in the Grand National or spread your bets out between the other Aintree races on the Grand National card.
