The going remains good on all three courses at Aintree as watering continues ahead of next week’s Martell Cognac Grand National meeting.

“We have been watering for between 12 and 14 hours each day, putting on 350 gallons of water per minute as we continue to aim to produce going no faster than good for the meeting,” said clerk of the course Andrew Tulloch today.

“There is a 20% possibility that we could get two millimetres of rain on Friday and again a chance of one millimetre of rain on Saturday morning.

“We are then forecast to have fine days on Sunday and Monday and early next week.”
