Gates Open - 10.00
First Race - 12.10
Last Race - 15.35
The final raceday of 2018 features the Grade 1 Betway Challow Hurdle. The race has been won by the likes of Denman, Taquin de Seuil and Barters Hill in recent years and is always one of the most competitive and informative races of its type run all season. Last year’s winner produced our ‘moment of the season’ when Poetic Rhythm won to give trainer Fergal O’Brien his first Grade 1.
It is a great day for the family with plenty of free entertainment on offer for younger racegoers too.
Take the chance to try out our Brasserie restaurant before racing – it offers a fresh, seasonal menu in a more casual setting with no pre-booking required.
Please note that race and gate opening times and the race programme for this event are currently provisional and will be finalised in due course.
