The formidable Big Bucks, unbeaten in his last 17 races over hurdles, will gallop at Exeter Racecourse next Wednesday (Nov 14) half an hour before the first race. The gallop is part of his final preparations before he makes his seasonal reappearance at either Haydock or Newbury.

Paul Nicholls said: “We did it at the same time last year, when he galloped with Kauto Star and Mon Parrain, before he won the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury, and it worked very well. He’ll have a day out and a spin around the racecourse.”

We are also offering free entry for all students with a valid student card. The six-race card begins at 1.40pm and includes a Pertemps Handicap Hurdle series qualifier with the winner and placed horses qualifying to participate in the final at the Cheltenham Festival.

A free race day bus service which leaves Exeter St David’s at 12.10pm and Exeter Bus & Coach Station at 12.25pm.
