    I was going to do the tour of Aintree racecourse but they only run from May to the 18th October and I missed it by a week so maybe next year,I

    believe the museum there is amazing.It's great to see those Grandstands rising and I believe they're building an International equestrian centre

    there,great pictures Kev.
