Amid all the chaos of the shouting and the racing horses, keep an eye on the tic-tac men with their white gloves (so you can see their hands clearly from a distance) whose impenetrable signals make for utterly compelling viewing! Many prefer the more laid-back approach of Aintree compared to the other, more formal meets in the National Hunt calendar. There’s also more racing to be had in June, October and November. And you’re off….
