Champion, who won the 1981 Grand National on Aldaniti, said: “Once again we have a fantastic line-up of both jumps and flat jockeys, with more than 17,000 career victories between them.
“Grand National day is one that will always be special to me and I can’t think of a better way than to celebrate my 1981 win and personal triumph over cancer than with this race.
“It will help raise much needed funds for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust.”
