Following the news that England is now in a National Lockdown, unfortunately we are unable to welcome spectators to the racecourse. This means that we will race behind closed doors, but we look forward to being able to welcome racegoers again when it’s safe and appropriate to do so.

This is a day filled with high-quality jump racing, and a race that is a window into potential Cheltenham Festival ones to watch. The Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase (Grade 1) is open to horses 5 years and older. Last year's winner Defi Du Seuil went on to win JLT Novices' Chase (Grade 1) at Cheltenham Festival a month later. Who will succeed this season?
