Festival Plate 2020

The Brown Advisory and Merriebelle Stable Chase (formerly Byrne Group Plate) is a handicap run over two mile four furlongs for chasers who are five years old and older.

There is always a large field which goes to post and this tends to be a tough race for punters to work out as proved in 2009 when Something Wells caused the upset of the festival winning at the massive odds of 33/1 and again in 2008 with a 66/1 winner.

Martin Pipe now retired and his operation is managed by his son David had a great run of success in this race between 1999 and 2001 winning it three times running as well as in 2010 with Great Endeavour and Nicky Henderson won it twice in a row in recent years in 2005 and 2006.

Festival Plate Chase Tips

This is one race we would love to tip up the winner as should we be able to find it we may well be quids in for the rest of the festival as big priced winners rule in this contest and it has tended to be a bookies benefit. Make sure you see who we side with nearer race day.
