Chepstow is one of three racecourses in Wales, the only course of the three to host Grade 1 jumps racing. That Grade 1 comes courtesy of the Finale Juvenile Hurdle, which can be used as a stepping stone towards the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Also at the December meeting is the Welsh Grand National, the biggest handicap of the year at the track. The highlights of the October Jumps Festival are the Persian War Novices’ Hurdle and the Silver Trophy Handicap Hurdle.
Chepstow is a left-handed, undulating, oval course, nearly two miles around with eleven fences to a circuit, a five-furlong home straight, and a run-in of 250 yards. Conditions can be very testing. With five fences in the straight, the first part of which is downhill, front runners-or those leading as they field turns into the straight-do well here, though the obstacles don't claim anything like the proportion of casualties that might be expected.
