Not raced behind closed doors?
No decided not too whether a crowd or not its this biggest betting day of the year with millions of viewers.....

Having said that only the bookies see that money and if they dont have a crowd then I guess it's not cost effective.

One thing I've never understand about Aintree is the lack of racing there other than the beecher meeting a a few summer night meetings there is never any racing there compare it to Haydock up the road and it's a fraction I may we all be wrong but I see it as the national meeting pays for itself so they dont have to do more and without they're doomed it seems

that's my view anyway

I think sponsorship would get a 80% refund based on what I've seen. Such a shame to see it postponed.

Cheers Charlie out of interest do you know why there is such a lack of racing there? I've no stats to back this up but I cant think of any other NH tracks that race less?
