Aintree may have to be watered ahead of Thursday’s start to the Grand National meeting.

Warm and dry weather which been forecast for the rest of the week may force staff to switch on the taps to maintain good conditions, according to clerk of the course Andrew Tulloch.

The track will be packed with tens of thousands of fans for Saturday’s big race which will be champion jockey AP McCoy’s final National before he retires. He will be riding the favourite, Shutthefrontdoor.

The Northern Ireland owned Hurricane Fly, twice winner of the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham as well as Artic Fire, another of Willie Mullins’ trained horses will be running in Thursday’s Aintree Hurdle.

The sun is expected to shine and there is little prospect of rain before Saturday.

Tulloch said: “It’s looking possibly to get warmer on Thursday and a fraction warmer on Friday and Saturday.  It’s got a terrific covering of grass and I’m pleased where we are.  We may end up having to put a bit of water on before Thursday to maintain what we’ve got – the easy side of good.”
