Our penultimate meeting of the year features a seven-race card of competitive Jump racing. Winners on the day last year included exciting young prospect Ms Parfois, who went on to have a fantastic season. It is a perfect opportunity to take a break from Christmas shopping and enjoy some enthralling equine action in a more relaxed, informal atmosphere.

Why not make your 2018 Christmas Party one to remember in one of our luxury hospitality suites or panoramic restaurants?

We will be serving complimentary mince pies and mulled wine to the first 300 racegoers, so make sure to arrive in plenty of time.
