The race which has Grade 3 status is scheduled for Saturday 30th January 2016 at 14.25 and will be televised live on Channel 4 Racing, so get those notebooks at the ready as plenty of Festival clues could well be on offer.
Many of the horses that compete on Festival Trials Day are having their final prep run before the Festival and as such, it is rare that this meeting doesn’t feature at least one subsequent Festival winner.
In 2014 Lac Fontana won on Festival Trials Day, before winning the Vincent O’Brien Hurdle in March and The Giant Bolster won the Argento Chase, before going on to be placed in the Betfred Gold Cup for the third consecutive year, behind Lord Windermere.
In 2013, four subsequent Festival winners – Rajdhani Express, The New One, Sprinter Sacre and At Fishers Cross – all had their final pre-Festival start at the Festival Trials Day.
