There is a wealth of sporting events in the month of April to keep you on the edge of your seat. For Cricket fans there is the start to the Indian Premier League at the beginning of the month with teams such as the Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Daredevils fighting it out for their chance to get their hands on the cup.

For horse racing fans there is the Grand National, known as the “Greatest Steeplechase In The World’ taking place in the middle of April at Aintree. Will the favourite Prince De Beauchene win the race or will Donald McCain’s Ballabriggs retain his title.

Finally for those of you who enjoy Formula One there are races throughout April taking place in China and Bahrain. With Jensen Button and Fernando Alonso already off to a great start with wins in Australia and Malaysia respectively, who will come out on top after April?
