Christmas Meeting

Review & Results

Friday 20th – Saturday 21st December 2013

As the year draws to a close, the Christmas Meeting provides the chance to enjoy a day of quality Jumps racing.

The first day of the Christmas Meeting features two Grade 2 Jumps races:

  • The Noel Novices' Steeple Chase, run over two miles and three furlongs; and

  • The Grade 2 MITIE Kennel Gate Novices' Hurdle, run over two miles.

Both these events are significant stepping-stones towards the championship races for younger jumpers in both disciplines later in the season, which culminates at the Cheltenham Festival in March.

Please note that there is no additional entertainment offered on this day.
