The racing highlight of Festival Trials Day is the Trial Cotswold Steeple Chase, often considered a trial for the Magners Gold Cup in March. Last year Definitly Red relished the wet ground conditions and flew home in front for connections.
The clue is in the name for our final raceday before The Festival. Three winners from this day all went on to score on Day Three of The Festival.
Popular Paisley Park cemented his place on the road in The Sun Racing Stayers’ hurdle with a convincing victory in the galliardhomes.com Cleeve Hurdle (Grade 2), with Frodon backing up his December success here and winning the Trial Cotswold Chase (Grade 2).
Siruh Du Lac and Lizzie Kelly were too good for the field in the Spectra Cyber Security Solutions Trophy Handicap Chase (Grade 3) winning for her Step Father, trainer Nick Williams.
