Doncaster’s season over jumps continues this Saturday with The BetVictor Christmas Meeting with the seven-race programme set to begin at 11.55 am.
Leading online bookmaker, BetVictor.com sponsor a quartet of races including The BetVictor Summit Juvenile Hurdle, a £27,500 Grade 2 contest for leading three-year-old hurdlers, and The BetVictor Handicap Chase, a contest for stayers over three miles offering prize money of £20,000.
Kashmir Peak, trained at Malton by John Quinn, won last year’s BetVictor Summit Juvenile Hurdle, and went on to compete in the JCB Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Regular sponsors, The Crown Hotel, Bawtry support a contest for novice hurdlers, while the card also includes The Macmillan Novices’ Chase, a race won last year by Rocky Creek, who recently finished runner-up in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury, and The DFS Supports Macmillan Handicap Hurdle.
Macmillan Cancer Support will have an information bus at Town Moor and they are being supported by DFS - the Doncaster-based upholstery manufacturer and retailer.
The giant screen situated opposite the main stands will enable racegoers to see all of the action, including racing from Cheltenham.
A shuttle bus will run from the railway station.
