Coral Scottish Grand National 2021

Scotland's biggest and best jumps racing extravaganza the Coral Scottish Grand National Festival at Ayr Racecourse features the very best in National Hunt racing over two exciting days.

Due to the continuing restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic this year’s Festival will be held behind closed doors but the quality of racing once again promises to be outstanding.

The centre piece is the Coral Scottish Grand National a race that is normally run before a sell-out crowd and captivates more than 1.2 million ITV viewers and millions more across Europe and beyond.

With £150,000 in prizemoney – the second richest handicap chase in Britain – the four mile Class 1 contest attracts some of the country’s leading staying chasers and is the fourth biggest race in terms of betting turnover in the UK and invariably produces an edge of your seat finish.

Coral have sponsored the great race since 2007 and this year for the first time are also supporting the Class 1 Coral Scottish Champion Hurdle one of the sport’s top two mile handicap hurdles.

The Class 1 races on Sunday are the Jordan Electrics Ltd Future Champion Chase which year in year out produces notable winners and The Scotty Brand Handicap Chase, a Listed Race.

Sunday also sees the Class 2 CPMS Novice Champion Chase a race that was first run in 2017 and has already carved a niche for itself.

Friday’s feature race is the Hillhouse Quarry Handicap Chase Listed Race and is the longest running sponsorship at the track with Hillhouse having supported the course for almost 30 years.

The main supporting race on Friday is the Coral Seafield Trophy Fillies’ Handicap Hurdle a three mile staying hurdle.


Restrictions mean we can’t welcome spectators to our finest two days’ racing of the jumps season but Racing TV subscribers can watch all 15 races live while Sunday’s four main races are live on ITV 1.
