Chester Racecourse is a left-handed, oval-shaped British horse racing venue in Chester, the county city of Cheshire.
A notoriously sharp course that is only a mile around with a short run-in, it doesn’t always suit strong galloping horses.
There are only flat events at Chester races, with dates from May to September and a number of black type events at the track.
The biggest meeting is the May Festival that includes three Classic trials in the Cheshire Oaks, Chester Vase and Dee Stakes. The big betting race of that three-day event is the Chester Cup, a handicap for flat stayers over two-and-a-quarter miles.

Chester 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 Chester Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.
It’s still worth checking Chester races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Chester Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
