Welcoming you back to the Welsh Grand National 2024!

The historic Coral Welsh Grand National is the biggest day in Chepstow Racecourse’s calendar and is the pride of Welsh racing. This fixture attracts visitors in their thousands and some of the finest long-distance chasers to the premier racecourse in Wales.

The roll of honour of this great race carries some very special names such as Native River, Potter's Corner and last year's winner, Nassalam!
