With a prestigious Grade 1 race at the fore, the Betfair Ascot Chase Raceday is one of the most important Jumps fixtures on our calendar.
The atmosphere is one of excitement and anticipation, with spring creeping closer. As well as featuring some big prizes in its own right, the ever competitive card provides horses and connections with a chance to fine-tune their preparations for the Cheltenham Festival.
Racegoers have the opportunity to see established names, as well as some potential stars of the future. The Grade 1 Betfair Ascot Chase stands out as one of the season’s most prestigious races, with a roll of honour to match its reputation, including Kauto Star, Cue Card and in 2019, the mightily impressive Cyrname.
Following the racing, King Edward VII Enclosure ticket holders will be able to enjoy a Cheltenham preview, which in previous years has featured Nick Luck, Paul Nicholls and Oli Bell.
