We go behind the scenes at Aintree Racecourse in the run up to The Grand National 2017

We went behind the scenes at Aintree Racecourse as preparations are well under way for the world’s most famous steeplechase. The Randox Health Grand National 2017 will be the finale of the 3 day festival which runs from 6-8th April 2017. There are currently 79 horses going which will eventually become 40 for the official start of the Grand National on Saturday 8th April at 5:15pm.

We met MD of Aintree racecourse, John Baker, who filled us in on the vital preparations prior to the festival, alongside Sam Quek who is one of this years Ladies Day ambassadors. Along with other official judges, Sam will scout the best dressed Liverpool ladies to win the coveted ‘Style Award’ which has the prize of a Range Rover Evoque worth £35,000.
