Aintree: BBC Presenter Dan Walker says there is no event quite like the Grand National at Aintree Racecourse
BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker is no stranger to Aintree Racecourse having hosted the BBC Sport output on numerous occasions, but this year he gets to relax as a punter rather than having to work.
Day one of the Randox Health Grand National Festival 2019 is in full swing with thousands in attendance for Grand Opening Day at Aintree Racecourse.
The weather isn’t dampening spirits and the famous faces are out in force enjoying the biggest race weekend on the planet. One of those faces is BBC Breakfast and Football Focus presenter Dan Walker who gets to enjoy the day as a race-goer rather than a member of the press.
We spoke to him just before racing got underway about how much he loves the festival, how much he loves Liverpool and what his predictions are for the big race on Saturday.
