Fixture Overview

This is simply jumps racing at its very best and Scotland’s premier day’s racing.

The sheer excitement of seeing top horses from leading stables ridden by elite jockeys makes this one of the truly iconic events of the sporting calendar.

There are eight outstanding races headlined by the Coral Scottish Grand National a four mile chase featuring up to 30 horses jumping 27 fences. As the runners power up the home straight for the final time the tension builds as the winning post looms.

Some of the most famous horses of all time have won this great race including Red Rum in 1974 the only horse ever to win the Grand National and the Scottish Grand National in the same year.

The main supporting race is the Coral Scottish Champion Hurdle one of the most coveted handicap hurdles in the racing calendar which invariably produces a worthy winner.

All the top jockeys will be in action today including Brian Hughes, Richard Johnson, Nico de Boinville and Davy Russell.
