Grand National Ladies' Day: Key Race

At Ladies Day of the Grand National, two key races stand out, each with its own rich history and significance. The Melling Chase and the Topham Chase epitomize the essence of this prestigious event, showcasing the best of thoroughbred athleticism and horsemanship amidst the grandeur of Aintree Racecourse.

The Melling Chase, named after the nearby village of Melling, is a prestigious Grade 1 event that spans a challenging distance of 2 miles and 4 furlongs, featuring sixteen formidable fences. Established in 1991, this race has seen legendary champions like Fakir D’oudairies, Sprinter Sacre, Voy Por Ustedes, and Moscow Flyer grace its winners’ circle. It stands as a testament to the pinnacle of racing excellence, attracting top chasers from around the country, eager to test their mettle on this illustrious stage. Meanwhile, the Topham Chase, although not a Grade 1 race, holds immense prestige as one of the oldest events in the country, dating back to 1949. Covering a distance of 2 miles and 5 furlongs, this race serves as a vital trial for horses and jockeys over the iconic Grand National fences.

With the Melling Chase scheduled for 15:30 and the Topham Chase at 16:05, these two races do not want to be missed. Enjoy them both with official Grand National hospitality packages for an absolutely thrilling raceday in the stunning backdrop of Aintree Racecourse.
