The charity race – where riders race on borrowed horses – is part of the 3rd annual Aintree Countryside Day, which is a great day out for all the family. It is also the course’s Old Roan Chase Meeting so there will be a full card of races after the charity event, which will be the first race at around noon.

The riders will be collecting sponsorship money in aid of The Countryside Alliance Foundation (TCAF) charities – Casting for Recovery, Castaway, Fishing for Schools and Falconry for Schools.

Organiser Sara Rutherford said: “Last year’s event was a fabulous day’s racing and tickets sold out for the lunch. Aintree has tremendous facilities and this is bound to be a great day out for racing and countryside enthusiasts alike. We are very grateful to the riders who will ride in our charity race to raise money for these great charities.”
