Saturday 2nd November 2019 - Charlie Hall Chase - Grade 2 - 3m
THE CHARLIE HALL CHASE IS A PATTERN RACE TRIAL FOR THE CHELTENHAM GOLD CUP
One of the first big races of the season is the bet365 Charlie hall chase at Wetherby racecourse in at the end of October. The Charlie Hall Chase has the potential for a big pay day for the winner with prize money in the region of £100,000 which always ensures the race attracts a strong field.
It attracts the cream of the staying chasers especially those with long term aspirations of winning the Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup as novices with a grade one penalty only have to carry an additional 5lbs instead of the normal 10lbs.
