Don Poli for Gordon Elliott currently heads up the weights in the Becher Chase alongside other Aintree favourites including the 2017 Grand National winner One For Arthur, Ultragold and The Dutchman for Colin Tizzard and last year’s winner of the race Blaklion for Nigel Twiston Davies.
The Aintree Grand Sefton Handicap Chase is the other race over the Grand National fences and, again, sees quality entries including the Paul Nicholls-trained Frodon who won the Monet’s Garden Old Roan Chase here in October and Gold Present for Nicky Henderson who defeated Frodon by three lengths in a Listed handicap Chase at Ascot last season.
Off the track, there will be a parade of past winners before racing begins and lots of fun Christmas entertainment for all the family to enjoy. Santa will be visiting McCoy's to say hello to young and old, whilst our community choir perform festive classics from around the Christmas tree. The Wheel of Fortune will be back so you can win spot prizes for free!
