My wife and I will be in London for a few days at this time, and we are thinking of going to the races. We are not huge horse racing fans, but going to a jumps race is one of those things we've been meaning to do someday (many Dick Francis books in the library), and this seems like a time to do it. A few questions:
1) I know the Saturday races may have the more prestigious horses, but is there a particular reason to choose one day over the other? I assume Friday would have a smaller crowd, but would this matter much (we'd be taking the train)?
2) Would we have a reason to go for the more expensive tickets? The "smartly dressed" bit doesn't really fit with the rest of our trip, and I don't like dragging along clothes that will only be worn once.
3) Anything else to make the day more enjoyable?
