Based in the Be Friendly Enclosure, racegoers can enjoy activities ranging from a bouncy, inflatable Hercules Aircraft, a mine detecting treasure hunt and you can even try on a parachute.

There’s even the chance to watch an impressive parachute displays with the Royal Logistics Corps Silver Stars Parachute Team expertly landing on the course between the first and second race.

Throughout the event, three military bands will provide music and the day’s racing will close in true Great British Bank Holiday style with a performance of pop and proms classics by the Haydock Brass Band, allowing guests to enjoy an early evening of entertainment in the Paddock.

On the track, the £100,000 Grade 2 Armstrong Aggregates Temple Stakes looks like a highly competitive race staged over five furlongs. Last year’s tremendous renewal of the race saw the brilliantly-fast Battaash for trainer Charlie Hills recover from a slow start to get up and deny Kachy for local trainer Tom Dascombe and the Michael Dods-trained Mabs Cross in third. Battaash, Kachy and Mabs Cross feature among the 21 entries for the 2019 running of the race.

Gates for general admission open at 12.15pm, offering racegoers plenty of time to place their bets before the first race begins at 2.15pm. There are a further six races to follow with the final race running at 5.45pm.
