Six races make up the card and with Exeter's reputation for being a favourite among trainers for introducing their novice horses to jumping fences, the Clapham Novices' Steeple Chase, the fifth race of the day, could attract one or two decent types.Also on the card is the Exeter Handicap Steeple, a class four contest run over two miles seven and a half furlongs. This is followed by the Haldon Handicap Steeple Chase over two miles one and a half furlongs. Then it's the Kenn Handicap Hurdle over two miles six and a half furlongs followed by the Starcross Handicap Hurdle over two miles one furlong; and the Topsham Novices' Hurdle over two miles three furlongs concludes the card.To tempt people to come racing for the day, there's a special raceday package and for just £16.50 racegoers can purchase the Brockman Package which includes a grandstand and paddock ticket, a racecard, tasty pub snack, a drink and £2 off a £5 bet.Exeter will also welcome 40 members of the globe trotting Irish Racegoers Club whose trip to the races is preceded by a stable tour with local trainer David Pipe.Find out more about Exeter at www.exeter-racecourse.co.uk or call 01392 832599.
