Dean Close Foundation Chase (A Novices' Limited Handicap) (Class 4)
Old Harry Rocks silk

Old Harry Rocks

Analysis

If OLD HARRY ROCKS  is fresh enough to run again so quickly after finishing second on Saturday then he ought to prove very hard to beat. That was his first ever start over fences yet he only went under by a head over shorter when one paced close home, and with further to travel now and James Bowen in the saddle, he ought to prove very difficult to beat.

Friars Walk Newport Handicap Chase (Class 2)
Magic Saint silk

Magic Saint

Analysis

The Paul Nicholls trained MAGIC SAINT has always been held in high regard and rarely disappoints even if he has found the better races at both Cheltenaham and Aintree a bit too hot for him. Nothing of that standard appears in the declarations here barring serious improvement, and this should be little more than exercise with a clear round.

16:55
Urban Flooring Handicap Chase (Class 3)
Easy Street silk

Easy Street

Analysis

Out of sorts for a while now but there is every hope that EASY STREET can perform far better on this going. Coming down the handicap this better ground could help see him bounce back to form and off a good mark he should go close on his easiest assignment for quite a while.

Tips For Chepstow Races

Chepstow is one of three racecourses in Wales, although it is located only a short drive from Bristol and Cheltenham, and features both Flat and National Hunt fixtures. As well as horse racing, in recent years it is known for playing host to concerts after racing.

Course: A similar course for both Flat and National Hunt, Chepstow is a left handed, undulating one mile seven furlong oval with a straight course of a mile. Unsurprisingly given Wales’s reputation for rain, going can be extreme and very difficult. The undulations are far more pronounced than at most other courses and can cause problems for galopping horses.

Draw Bias: For distances up to a mile, horses drawn in higher numbers (closer to the stands) have an advantage which is considered when selecting our Chepstow tips.

Feature RacesChepstow races plays hosts to two especially notable races; the Welsh Grand National, held on the 27th of December, is run over three and a half miles and has been won by two future Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup winners – Synchronised and Native River. The Future Champions Finale Juvenile Hurdle for four year olds takes place at the same meeting, and is a rare Juvenile Grade One.
