TICKETS are rapidly selling out for the Grand National Festival – with a HUGE crowd set to hit Aintree for 'one of the greatest ever days of racing'.
All five grandstands are now sold out for the National on Saturday week.
There is still availability in the Embankment, which is close to the first fence on the National course and a long way from the finishing post.
There is only limited availability remaining for all enclosures on Thursday's opening day and Friday's Ladies Day.
Some 64,902 punters piled into Aintree to see 50-1 Noble Yeats win the big one last year.
But that figure looks to be smashed this year, with racegoers defying the cost of living crisis to meet up with friends, have a drink and place a bet.
Dickon White, Regional Director for The Jockey Club North West, said for all the glitz and glamour of Saturday, it is actually the Thursday that could have the best action.
He said: "Ticket sales have been strong so far this year and all grandstands have now sold out on Randox Grand National Day.
