More entertainment to be confirmed

The sun shone on our Day Two crowd in 2018, which saw Modus silence the critics in the famous green and gold silks for JP McManus under Barry Geraghty for trainer Paul Nicholls in the Randox Health Handicap Chase. Irish-raider, Dinons justified odds on favouritism in the Randox Health Novices’ Hurdle for Gordon Elliot and Champion Jockey, Richard Johnson.
