The Showcase - Friday

Excellence on show, The journey starts here

Opens 12.00, First race 2.00, Last race 5.30

Excellence on show, the journey starts here following a six-month break over the summer. The Showcase is a popular meeting to get the season underway at the Home of Jump racing with many of the top owners, trainers and jockeys having runners during the two days. The October meeting marks the beginning of the year for many horses, ready to get going in a season which will hopefully bring them back to The Festival™ in March.

El Bandit bravely made it five wins on the bounce in the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle, securing a win for trainer Paul Nicholls who doubled his tally on the day immediately with another win from Marracudja.
