THE BIG JUMPING WEEKEND - SEASON OPENERSunday 15th October 2017

There are seven races at this meeting and today’s feature is the Grade Two Tote Persian War Novices’ Hurdle. Previous winners include Monsignor, Silviniaco Conti, Fingal Bay and last year by El Bandit. Also on the card is the popular Veterans’ Chase.

The 2016/17 season attracted plenty of top class horses to Chepstow including Native River, Thistlecrack, Defi Du Seuil and The Worlds End. We hope to see many more stars at this meeting.
