What's on:

October 27 - This meeting is in support of Combat Stress, a charity created in 1919 to support veterans from every service and conflict. One hundred years later it is one of the UK's leading charities for mental health.

The card features the Desert Orchid Silver Cup, named after the flamboyant grey who had the hooves of Pegasus and who won the hearts of a nation with his bold, front running style.

November 9 - Badger Chase Day. For history buffs and racing afficionados Badger Chase Day might be one of those 'were you there?' days because Present Man could become the first horse in history to win the prestigious Badger Ales Trophy three years in a row.

Also on the card is the grade 2 Elite Hurdle. Run over two miles, it is a thrilling contest as horses are flat to the boards from the off. It's been staged since 1994 and runners are among the fastest and slickest jumpers in the business.

November 21 - Enjoy the finest views on the racecourse from Chasers Restaurant, where you can enjoy a delicious three-course fine dining experience.

Fabulous food and thoroughbred racing shared with friends, colleagues or family are one of the best ways to experience a day at the races.

December 5 - The nights are long and the weather chilly, but this fixture will warm you up with plenty of runners on the winter ground.
