RANDOX GRAND NATIONAL

Ladies Day at aintree racecourse

 

Known as ‘Ladies Day’, the second day of the Randox Grand National Festival is one of the most popular racedays in the calendar, renowned not only for the action on the racecourse but also the fashion and entertainment off the track.

 

A real celebration of Liverpool, this raceday has become a firm date in the diary for many who live in the city and the racing on offer certainly lives up to that same billing, with three top level contests on the card.

the racing

 

The feature race is the Grade One JLT Chase (known traditionally as the Melling Chase), which usually features stars from the previous month’s Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

 

Both the Betway Mildmay Novices’ Chase and the Betway Top Novices’ Hurdle bring together potential stars of the future, while the Randox Topham Chase is one of the most competitive and popular events of the meeting. The second race of the week to be run over the Grand National fences, the Topham features horses with a love for the iconic and unique obstacles, but perhaps not quite the stamina for Saturday’s feature contest.
