The eyes of the horse racing world will be on Chepstow for the course’s biggest fixture of the year – Coral Welsh Grand National day. This historic Chepstow event attracts some of the finest long-distance chasers to the premier racecourse in Wales to vie for the big prize.

The roll of honour of winners of this great race carries some very special names, and features some who have gone on to win the Grand National itself at Aintree, including Silver Birch, Bindaree and Earth Summit.

Welsh National day at Chepstow is always a special occasion. The combination of a big crowd, a prestigious race and lingering seasonal cheer ensures that it’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for things to do, or a family fun day out, straight after Christmas.

We’ll have extra facilities available to ensure you enjoy this fabulous festive day of horse racing at Chepstow.

Welsh National Anthem

A tradition as old as the Welsh Grand National. The national anthem of Wales will be sung prior to the running of the feature race by Rebecca Evans CBE and Shan Cothi.

Rebecca Evans CBE is a Welsh operatic soprano and Grammy award winning singer from Pontrhydyfen.

Shan Cothi is a Welsh singer-songwriter, television and radio presenter from Ffarmers.

What To Expect + Covid Passes

Get ready to enjoy every roar and cheer with friends and family and don’t miss another moment together. Your safety is our priority and all events will be run in accordance with the latest government rules.

Following the latest announcement from the Welsh government, all visitors will need to have a ‘Covid Pass’ to attend. This is simply either proof that you’ve been vaccinated or proof of a negative Covid lateral flow test. These just need to be shown as you walk through the gates and don’t need to be provided in advance. We will also have a Covid testing facility available at each fixture. There is no charge should you require a lateral flow test on the day, but it can take up to 30 minutes to process.
