The Coral Welsh Grand NationalWednesday 27th December 2017

Join us for our biggest race meeting of the year, the £150,000 Coral Welsh Grand National, one of the most prestigious jump fixtures of the season in the UK and the richest race in Wales.

2016 Coral Welsh Grand National winner Native River went on to finish third in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The card also includes the £50,000 Coral Finale Juvenile Hurdle, won last year by Defi du Seuil who went on to take the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Once again, we will have guest celebrities to sing the Welsh National anthem before the big race including international soprano Rebecca Evans.

The fantastic Wild Murphys will be playing live before and during racing in our Bonanza Boy Marquee behind the main stand.

There will be seven races on the card.

As a bonus, all customers who book a ticket in advance will receive a voucher for complimentary admission to our jump meeting on Friday 27th April (Dunraven Bowl Race Night).
