As the New Year begins, the countdown has started for the 2018 renewal of the £1-million Randox Health Grand National, run at Aintree on Saturday 14th April.

The £1-million handicap chase, by far the richest Jump race run anywhere outside of Japan, takes place at Aintree on the final day of the Randox Health Grand National Festival, which runs from 12th–14th April 2018.

Featuring four Grade One (G1) races, Grand National Thursday is a true day for Champions. Uniquely, the only day of the British Jump season to offer two open G1 races and two G1 contests for novices.

Ladies’ Day is known as #FabulousFriday because this is the day for everyone to be at their best, their most glamorous and show-off the very best of themselves. The Style Awards competition will be running to find Aintree’s most stylish racegoer and this will be open on the day at the racecourse (you can only enter if you’re there!). The prize will be a fabulous car – for the past two years it’s been a Range Rover Evoque!

Renowned silversmith, Shannon O’Neill is collaborating once again with Grand National sponsors Randox Health, to create the 2018 trophy for the Grand National itself on the Saturday – before the process of designing and developing the sought-after trophy becomes a nationwide competition.

All of this takes place at the historic Aintree Racecourse, with thousands of spectators attending during the festival and millions following the action on television.

If you’ve been a TV spectator and longed to be part of the action, or if you have a Ladies’ Day outfit that will outshine all competition – this could be your chance to take part this year. Not only that, but take your own party of friends with you!

Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.

She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.

If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
