The Grand National due to take place on the 4th April at Aintree has been postponed

A statement released by Sandy Dudgeon, senior steward at the Jockey Club, read: “The Randox Health Grand National Festival was just three weeks away and it’s very clear to us it will not be possible for the event to take place. Public health must come first.

We were working on a plan to stage the Grand National behind closed doors given its importance to the racing industry and beyond, but following the new Government measures confirmed this evening to help to tackle the coronavirus outbreak, this is not a viable option.
