Chepstow Racecourse, close to the border with England, is the only track in Wales that hosts Grade 1 jumps racing, in the form of the Finale Junior Hurdle.
The most famous race at the course, however, is the Coral Welsh National. This is a gruelling test of stamina that is held just after Christmas and often fought out in very heavy ground, but it always attracts a big field with a dash of quality.
Chepstow, which also hosts plenty of flat racing, is nearly two miles round and the emphasis is almost always on staying power.

Chepstow Racecourse is left-handed, with a home straight that is very slightly uphill. You climb from turning in and then it sort of peters out before you head downhill past the post.
The bottom end of the course can be tricky because horses can swing wide when they see the stableyard. If you have a horse that is a few lengths in front of you, then it’s very hard to pin it back. You really want to be making your move on the last or second last and then hope you’ve got enough in the tank.

Chepstow races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Chepstow races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.
It’s still worth checking Chepstow races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Chepstow Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the course’s official website.
