The Showcase - Saturday

Excellence on show, The journey starts here

Opens 11.50, 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.

Watch the Season Launch video

Saturday’s card saw the reappearance of a horse who was to become one of the season’s stand-out performers. Fox Norton, given a thrashing by Douvan in the Arkle the previous March, looked vastly improved as he took the Randox Health Handicap Chase by a dazzling 11 lengths. Jockey Noel Fehily found himself in front and going effortlessly with half a mile left to run and, as trainer Neil Mulholland predicted afterwards, this would be the last time the gelding would be running in handicaps.
