Andrew Tulloch, Clerk of the Course and Director Of Racing at Aintree Racecourse, explained: “We have had a second dry day in a row, having missed the showers so far, and the courses have dried again.
“I am really pleased with the ground ahead of the start of the John Smith’s Grand National meeting tomorrow. It is drying but the next two days are forecast to be unsettled and we could have a heavy shower or two. Equally, we could again miss the rain.”
