    Horse racing

    There is something special about horse racing. Both National Hunt and Flat meetings bring genuine excitement to horse racing fans and punters. Whether it’s hurdles, fences, bumpers, the flying 5f, or a handicap over obstacles or without, the action is always exciting. While the Cheltenham Festival is the centrepiece of the National Hunt horse racing season in the UK, there’s also big jumps and flat racing on almost every day of the year either in Great Britain or Ireland. At Hurdle Bet, we are concerned with the very best horses running at the most high-profile courses. Those jump meetings really do shape the Festival, including other ones at Cheltenham and the Grand National at Aintree. Over the summer, the action turns to the flat with Royal Ascot and Classics like the Derby at Epsom. Whatever stage of the season we are at, there are always tasty tips and the latest horse racing news on offer to keep you in the know.

    All the big jumps and flat racing covered by Hurdle Bet

    From Ascot to York and everything in between, Hurdle Bet coverage is comprehensive of major National Hunt and Flat meetings. Big jumps racing takes centre stage in autumn, winter and spring, so there is plenty to go at. Ayr hosts the Scottish Grand National, Chepstow the Welsh Grand National and Fairyhouse the Irish Grand National, and these always attract huge betting interest. Staying in the Emerald Isle, the Leopardstown Festival between Christmas and New Year and Punchestown Festival in April are also significant. Kempton Park, meanwhile, could face closure in the coming years, but is home to the historic King George VI Chase on Boxing Day. Newbury hosts plenty of fine Flat racing and the Hennessy Gold Cup in November, another major race on the road to the Cheltenham Festival and Grand National. Neighbouring Aintree is Merseyside venue Haydock Park, which stages the Betfair Chase over jumps and plenty on the flat. Sandown is where the British National Hunt season comes to an end but is a multi-purpose venue like Newcastle. Stick with Hurdle Bet for all the big horse racing whether it’s over jumps or on the flat.
