Racing UK's countdown to the New Year

Friday 29 December 2017

The countdown to the New Year is well underway but before the bells chime on New Year's Eve there is plenty of action to keep you entertained on Racing UK.

Mark Your Card kicks off Saturday's action from 10.30am and is followed by live racing from Newbury, Haydock Park and Taunton. Newbury's Betfred Challow Novices' Hurdle is the day's highlight. Hat-trick seeking Kilbricken Storm steps up in class for the Grade 1 event after winning Cheltenham's Grade 2 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle last time out.

On Sunday at midday Racing head to Warwick for their final seven races of 2017 which includes the LPS Handicap Chase.

Start the New Year in style with four meetings on an action-packed New Year's Day. We are live from Cheltenham, Catterick, Musselburgh and Exeter with a total of 26 races headlined by Cheltenham's Grade 2 Dornan Engineering Rekeel Hurdle. Last year's winner, Agrapart, went on to contest the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle against the likes of Lil Rockerfeller and Unowhatimeanharry.
