The National Jockey Day is marked by the Betfair Chase Raceday beginning at 12:0pm UK time today, with the highlight Fixed Brush race at 2:25pm.
Haydock Park racecourse at Merseyside is the venue for the National Jockey Day marked today. The day is dedicated to raise awareness for the dangerous and demanding nature of work that jockeys do.
The National Jockey Day is marked by today's Betfair Chase Raceday, featuring seven jump chases starting at 12:10pm UK time. The Betfair 'This Is Play' "Fixed Brush" Handicap Hurdle Race (2:25pm) is the highlight event of the raceday. With a total prize fund of £80,000, this Grade 3 race attracts top jockeys and horses. The competition is tight for today with many big names in attendance.
Fixed Brush Odds
Ahead of the race, the odds at bet365 Sports have shown favor to Volnay De Thaix at 4/1, followed by Katkeau at 7/1 and Vieux Lion Rouge at 9/1. Much of the buzz ahead of the Fixed Brush chase is centered on Aubusson who was given 10/1 by bet365. The five year old has two wins out of four starts in the last season and has performed well in October's Silver Trophy Handicap Hurdle at Chepstow, losing the first place only in the final flight.
