And they're off! Coleen Rooney takes her girls for a Grand National Day at Aintree

By Georgina Littlejohn

Gorgeous in grey: Coleen Rooney leaves her mother's house in Liverpool as she heads to Aintree for a sunny Grand National day with her friends and family

The sun might have been shining down warmly over the Aintree racetrack today, but it proved to be a grey day for Coleen Rooney.

Not that her horse had fallen at the first hurdle, or even that she wasn't having a good time but the WAG settled for rather a neutral-coloured dress as she took her family and friends to watch the Grand National.

It was certainly in sharp contrast to the pretty pink frock she wore for Ladies' Day at the Merseyside racetrack today.

The wife of Manchester United star Wayne still looked chic and stylish in the grey dress which she wore with a matching bag and peep-toed Louboutin heels.

Ladies' Day part two: Coleen was joined in her VIP box by a couple of girlfriends and her mother Colette (far right)

The highs and the lows: Coleen looks out at the track at one of the races, which she looked like she had missed out on just moments later

And she looked as though she was having a great time as she and her friends soaked up the race day atmosphere from their private box overlooking the track.

It was her second day at the ground having attended the event's Ladies' Day yesterday, an occasion she never misses.

Feeling all white: Female racegoers got their glad rags and their big hats on for the big day

Come on you beauty! Some of the girls loudly cheered on their horse from the side of the track

Her mother Colette joined her again as well as a couple of friends who hadn't attended yesterday.

Husband Wayne was no where to be seen, however, despite missing this afternoon's clash with Fulham at Old Trafford.

Rooney was given a two-match ban after swearing into a camera during the live televised match with West Ham last weekend.

Monochrome madams: Black and white were the colours of the day for these ladies...

... and this man who was dressed as a nun as he drove through Aintree on this novelty piano vehicle

All the girls - and other female racegoers - had dolled themselves up again for the big day which is expected to attract its biggest crowd for more than 50 years.

The racetrack is expecting more than 73,000 people to pack into the stands for the day, with lots of other races going on before the big one at 4.15.

Former Grand National winners Bob Champion - who was looking rather portly - Charlie Fenwick and JonJo O'Neill recieved big cheers as they arrived to take part in the John Smith's Aintree Legends Charity Race.

Hope you've got a strong horse! Former Grand National winner Bob Champion - looking rather portly - gears up for the Legends Charity Race
