The staff were so helpful and accommodating, I booked this event before I was pregnant and now heavily pregnant and they put me in the disabled area without any fuss. Great show and would go back for a big race day. Thank you.

It would be best to check on their Website at the end of this year, when their Event Timetable is viewable. It depends where you are headed after Aintree. But it is usually approx 10/10:30pm when it winds down.
