The Symphony Group Prelude Handicap Steeple Chase was first introduced in 2004 and is always highly competitive. The horses that line up are typically proven to be high-class or at least with the potential to be.

 

The race is a handicap, so horses are allotted a weight depending on their official rating and subject to various allowances, based on age and sex, and penalties based on previous successes.

The most successful trainer in the race is Peter Bowen, who sent out the winner on three consecutive occasions from 2007 to 2009. Bowen was also successful in Market Rasen's biggest race, the Summer Plate, earlier this year, so it is worth keeping an eye on any horses he runs at the course.

 

As well as the Prelude Handicap Chase, the Symphony Group Raceday also stages a novice hurdle, maiden hurdle and a 'bumper' (a flat race for jumps horses), all of which provide opportunities for young unexposed horses to show their potential. Two of Jump racing's biggest stars, Altior and Tiger Roll, began their careers at Market Rasen, so you never know, you may witness a future champion!
