On Saturday 19thNovember, the 2016 version of The Coral Hurdle will take place at Ascot and if previous years are anything to go by – it will be a star-studded affair
The 2015 race was the last time we saw Rock on Ruby, a former Cheltenham Festival winner when landing the Champion Hurdle ahead of Hurricane Fly, and other high-profile successes down the years include Faugheen, Annie Power and Silviniaco Conti.
In fact, the last six winners of the race, formerly known as the Ascot Hurdle, are as an impressive a group as you could find:
The 2016 running will be a good early-season gauge and there is already an expectation that Alan King’s mighty hurdler Yanworth will be starting his campaign in the race.
Alongside the impressive racing, the Country Living UK Christmas Shopping Fair will fill the Ascot Grandstand to ensure your festive gifts and tips are catered for.
