There are still 63 entries remaining in the demanding steeplechase race on Saturday which will see 40 runners and riders battle 30 fences over a four-mile stretch.
This year’s favourite in the Grand National is Total Recall with odds of 10/1.
But with the final furlong comes the glitz and the glamour on Ladies Day on Friday as fashionable frocks and sky-high fascinators take over Aintree for the day.
How to buy tickets for Ladies Day
This year’s event falls on April, Friday 13 – and the date is proving unlucky for some, with tickets having already sold out for the full range of seating options.
Weather forecasters are predicting a 50 percent chance of rain on the day so if you are one of the lucky attendees, do not forget to take a brolly with you.
A coat is also advisable as temperatures are not expected to get above 13C.
The gates will open at 10.30am, with the first race taking place at 1.30pm.
Races include The JLT Melling Steeple Chase and the Randox Health Topham Steeple Chase.
