What could be better – live racing from Chepstow and coverage of the world’s most famous race on our big screen – and all sponsored by Unibet.
Please note there are now EIGHT races with the last at 5.55pm. There is just over an hour between races at Chepstow so after the 3.45pm you can enjoy all the build-up and post race celebrations from Aintree on our big screen.
There will also be live music from the fantastic Irish band, Murphy’s Marbles in our marquee bar behind the Grandstands. A preview of the Grand National and the racing at Chepstow will take place in the Parade Ring around 12.30pm.
We’ll be putting the riders through their paces with Jockey Mastermind, where they will battle it out for supremacy answering questions about the world’s most famous race. Plus, we’ll be interviewing the finalists in our £1,000 competition with Real Radio. Forty lucky people will pick a horse at random and whoever has the winning horse takes home the prize!
That’s not your only chance to win £1,000 however. Enter our on course competition by buying a racecard and select the first three home (in the correct order) in the Crabbie’s Grand National. In effect of a tie, finalists will be entered into a draw to win the £1,000 outright.
All advance bookings using a credit or debit card are subject to a £2 fee – please note this is per booking, not per ticket. If you have purchased a ticket well in advance, your ticket will be posted at least one week before the raceday. However, if you purchase a ticket 5 days or less before the date of the meeting, your ticket(s) will be left at the main entrance under the name in which it was booked.
