What's On This Week In The World Of Horse Racing 05/11/18


The first day of the week see's a tame start to the week with just three meetings across England with no Irish racing at all. Plumpton and Hereford host the days dosage of jumps racing and they are followed up on the night with a all weather card at Kempton.

Kempton host the best racing of the day with a Listed contest with Crowned Eagle who last time out came second in the Group 3 Stockholm Cup and Atty Persee who was a winner at the 2017 Royal Ascot meeting.


Tuesday could arguably bring the best of the weeks racing from aroundthe world as it gives us the big Group 1 of the season in Australia with the Melbourne cup at Flemington Racecourse the feature of the year down under.

We send over many English and Irish raiders that have great chances in taking home the Cup. Over this neck of the woods there are five meetings with the class racing of the day being dominated by the jumps.

Fairyhouse and Exeter host some good cards with the better days racing happening in England, where there is the Grade 2 Haldon Cup where many ex Cheltenham festival runners and winners will look to have there seasonal return.

The rest of the days racing comes on the flat with three meetings coming from Redcar, Kempton and Wolverhampton under the lights.

Melbourne Cup


Wednesday see's us near the half way point of the week and there is six meetings to get stuck into with something for all racing fans. The day starts off with a flat meeting at Nottingham and that is followed by Musselburgh and Chepstow that both host the two jumps meetings of the day.

The night racing also gives a healthy handful of all weather racing under the lights at Dundalk, Newcastle and Chelmsford with plenty of handicap and maidens to keep everyone interested.


Thursday brings a clear dominance of Jumps racing and really shows the season is getting into the swing of things. There are four national hunt meetings out of the five race cards of the day and they come from Thurles, Market Rasen, Sedgefield and Newbury where they are having their first jumps meeting of the season.

Chelmsford finishes the day of racing off at there track in Essex with the only flat meeting of the day.


With the weekend just one day away there is another explosion of jumps racing to get stuck into with three out of the four race cards for the dat made up of national hunt racing.

Warwick offers the best of the days racing with a novices chase where we could see the debut of last years Supreme Novices Hurdle Second, Kalashnikov over fences. Hexham and Fontwell offer all of the days other jumps contest with just one meeting Newcastle for flat racing fans.



The weekend brings the best of the flat racing for the week with some strong contests at various different tracks. Wincanton have their feature day of the year with the Grade 2 Rising Stars Novice Chase the highlight of the day there, they are backed up by jumps racing at Aintree and Kelso.

Doncaster have there last meeting of the season and in good style there are two Listed contests at the home of the St Leger to get stuck into. This is also backed up with the last flat meeting of the day at Chelmsford.


Sunday doesn't let the racing slip one bit with just the two meetings but a quality race card at Sandown is the pick of the bunch with the Listed Future Stars Intermediate Chase and last years winner of the race was the King George victor Might Bite.

Ffos Las in Wales also hosts a seven race card on Remembrance Sunday.
