Chepstow Races

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 Racing Tips

  • David Evans and Richard Hannon Jr. train plenty of winners here on the flat, while William Haggas has a notable strike rate from the very few runners he sends to Chepstow.
  • Jockey Rossa Ryan has been prolific at Chepstow in recent seasons, while Silvestre de Sousa rides there rarely but often scores when he does.
  • Paul Nicholls is the trainer to follow here over the jumps, but the Herefordshire yard of Tom Lacey also does well in its cross-border raids.
  • Richard Johnson has ridden plenty of winners at the course and it is always work checking his mounts carefully.

The jockey's view

Bryony Frost
By Bryony Frost - Most successful female jump jockey in history

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.
