Friday 29th November 2019 - Long Distance Hurdle - Grade 2 - 3m
The Long Distance Hurdle betting will be here...
THE LONG DISTANCE HURDLE IS A PATTERN RACE TRIAL FOR THE STAYERS HURDLE AT CHELTENHAM
The Long Distance Hurdle is another one of the key trial races for the staying hurdlers who may well end up at Cheltenham and the Stayers Hurdle later in the season. The Long Distance Hurdle has developed into a key stepping stone for Stayers Hurdle contenders and that has proven to be the case over the past few years with plenty of star names taking their chance at Newbury.
The Long Distance Hurdle has been the seasonal debut of some great Stayers Hurdle names over the past few years including the great Inglis Drever who won the race three times, and Big Bucks who won the race four times during his brilliant career.
