Free Bets on Chepstow Races
Left-handed oval, undulating, 2 mile round with 4½ furlong run-in. Races up to 1 mile on straight course, via a chute. The course tends to suit galloping horses, but the steepness of the course makes it a stern test.
The chase course adopts the left-handed oval of the flat course, but offers a slightly shorter circuit of 1 mile 7 furlongs, with 11 fences around the circuit. The hurdles course includes 7 obstacles per circuit and can prove tricky for the inexperienced jumper.
