Taking place on a busy Saturday in mid to late March soon after the Cheltenham Festival, Bangor’s March meeting consists of seven competitive National Hunt races.
The feature race is the three-mile Mares’ Handicap Chase, a qualifier for Challenger Mares Series. The £12,000 contest was won in 2019 by The Bay Birch who racked up a hat-trick thereafter with Class 2 wins at Haydock and Chepstow, proving the quality of the race is high.
The main event is backed up by 2m7f Class 3 Handicap Hurdle, a 2m Novices’ Hurdle, a 2m Handicap Hurdle, a 2m 3½f Novices’ Hurdle, a 3m Handicap Chase and a 3m Open Hunters’ Chase, all of which are well supported by trainers.
The meeting is well attended and the atmosphere traditionally very good, as jumps fans reach the peak of their season between Cheltenham and Aintree.
