"(Grand National sponsor) Randox Health, Aintree and the Jockey Club pulled out all the stops to make the day amazing, all the staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us.

"He got to meet some of the jockeys before the races, have his own little weigh in, and of course he met the winner of the Grand National at the end. The Grand National is one of the most eagerly-awaited events on the sporting calendar. Pic: PA.

"This is an experience we will treasure forever."
