Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty as to when spectators will be able to return, Ascot Racecourse,  is not currently selling tickets to any Ascot racedays, with racing remaining behind closed doors until further notice.
 
Nevertheless,  you will be able to enjoy all the action from home.
 
Betfair Ascot Chase day is always a hugely popular fixture guaranteed to only intensify the excitement of the legions of Jumps fans eagerly awaiting the Cheltenham Festival. Indeed, the occasion is likely to be one of the very last chances to see some of racing’s biggest names - and potential future stars - in action ahead of the Cotswolds extravaganza in March. 
 
Its feature race, the Grade 1 Betfair Ascot Chase, boasts an exceptional roll of honour to match its reputation as one of the most prestigious prizes of the entire season. Previous winners include the brilliant One Man, Monet’s Garden, Kauto Star, Cue Card, Silviniaco Conti and Paul Nicholls’ current chasing superstar Cyrname, who annihilated a high-class field with a devastating 17-length victory in 2019.
  
The card also includes the Grade 2 Reynoldstown Novices' Chase, frequently an important stepping stone to The Festival’s Grade 1 three-mile novice chase Chase and a race which has been won by many fine horses over the years, none more so than the great One Man in 1994. The 2020 edition was taken by the progressive Copperhead , who dismissed testing conditions when galloping home by 17 lengths to seal a hat-trick of consecutive victories over fences for trainer Colin Tizzard.
 
While racegoers may not be able to experience the action at the track itself, we hope you still enjoy what promises a thrilling day’s racing packed with an abundance of established stars and rising talent.
 
We look forward to welcoming racegoers back to Ascot at the earliest possible opportunity. Raceday ticket information will be updated early in the new year; should you wish to be notified of any developments, please complete your details below.

Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty as to when spectators will be able to return, Ascot Racecourse,  is not currently selling tickets to any Ascot racedays, with racing remaining behind closed doors until further notice.

Ascot’s Jumps season draws to a close with seven compelling races on Sunday 28th March. 
 
Each of the two feature contests is expected to draw a number of quality contenders to have shown promise throughout the 2020/21 campaign, with some likely to have had their last start at the Cheltenham Festival. 
 
Second in the two-mile-one-furlong Novices’ Handicap Chase in 2019 for instance was Caid Du Lin, an impressive winner of the Gerard Bertrand Hurst Park Handicap Chase at Ascot earlier that season who had performed with credit in the Grand Annual. Similarly, the card’s Juvenile Handicap Hurdle could include some interesting prospects. Notable among its recent winners is Lil Rockerfeller (2015), who would go on to win the Grade 2 Coral Hurdle back at Ascot in 2017, beating future Grade 1 Aintree Hurdle winner L’Ami Serge and the dual Cheltenham Festival scorer and winner of Ascot’s Grade 1 Clarence House Chase in 2020, Defi Du Seuil. 
 
Also on the card is a three-mile Veterans’ Handicap Chase that invariably attracts several well-loved stalwarts of the National Hunt scene nearing the end of their racing careers. The 2019 renewal was won by the popular David Pipe-trained Rathlin Rose, who along with jockey Tom Scudamore had also taken the race twelve months previously.
 
The concluding Open Hunters’ Chase is another enjoyable contest featuring a number of familiar names from the point-to-point circuit; the latest edition was won by Virak, a former Grade 2 winner and runner-up in Ascot’s Listed Sodexo Silver Cup Handicap Chase unbeaten in all four of his point-to-point starts.
