Our opening Flat meeting of 2017 climaxes with the JLT Greenham Stakes, a key trial for the 2,000 Guineas won by superstars such as Frankel and Kingman in recent years. It’s a chance to see some of last season’s most exciting juveniles begin their three-year-old campaign and witness some stars of the future too, with subsequent Royal Ascot scorer Eagle Top victorious on the day in 2015.

Why not take a break from the action and enjoy our annual beer festival? With a wide selection of real ales & ciders on offer on the Copper King Lawn in the Grandstand Enclosure, it is the perfect accompaniment to a thrilling days racing.

See the full list of real ales and ciders on offer:
